Yep, the wonders of a college football offseason.
According to the Cedar Rapids Gazette, Iowa State defensive back Matt Thomas was charged recently with fourth-degree theft. There were no details available of what led to the Thomas’ arrest or the charges he’s currently facing, although the paper described the charge as “a serious misdemeanor”.
A school official confirmed to the Gazette that Thomas has been indefinitely suspended by head coach Paul Rhoads due to the incident.
A member of ISU’s 2010 recruiting class, Thomas redshirted his true freshman season and did not record a statistic of any kind ion 2011. Currently, though, he leads the Cyclones in 2012 arrests.
