Texans soon to be free agent wide out Demaryius Thomas was arrested for “vehicular assault” on Wednesday in connection with a February 16 crash in Denver, authorities say.
Officials say Thomas was driving at speeds exceeding 70 MPH in a 30 MPH zone — which not only qualifies as reckless driving, but also felony vehicular assault.
We’ve obtained DT’s mug shot — you can Thomas suffered a left eyeball injury.
We previously reported, the 31-year-old ex-Broncos star was driving around Denver around 12:20 AM when witnesses say he lost control of his car, hit a curb and rolled 3 times before landing in a grassy median.
We spoke with Michael Tafoya, who happened to be driving in the Denver area around 12:20 AM when he saw the vehicle lose control, hit a curb and launch 20 feet into the air. The car then rolled 3 times before finally landing in a grassy median.
Cops and emergency personnel arrived to the scene a short time later and took over — managing to free Thomas and his 2 passengers.
Cops say all 3 people in the car were transported to a nearby hospital to be treated for injuries. One of the passengers suffered serious bodily injuries as a result of the crash.
A witness tells TMZ Sports … Thomas seemed to be fine other than a “hellacious knot” on his head.
Thomas played for the Broncos for nine seasons before being traded mid-way through this past year to the Texans. He’s now a free agent after Houston released him earlier this month.
