A New York Jets linebacker and Randolph resident was charged with the aggravated assault of his wife and possession of hydrocodone and marijuana after an incident at his home on October 31. The Defendant has applied for admission into the Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI) program. If he is admitted into the program and successfully completes the probationary period, the charges will be dismissed at the end of his probation.

According to the Daily Record article, “Thomas, 33, was charged Oct. 31 in Randolph with aggravated assault upon his wife at their home. The linebacker — described as 6 feet, 4 inches and 265 pounds on the NFL roster — allegedly pushed his wife with a kitchen chair, punched her in the stomach, and grabbed her by the neck, causing pain and marks on her body, according to criminal complaints. Thomas, who posted $2,500 bail after his arrest, also was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon (the kitchen chair), possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of less than 50 grams of marijuana, and possession of 20 tablets of suspected hydrocodone.”
