Georgia wide receiver Rodarius Thomas was arrested early Monday morning on a felony charge of false imprisonment and misdemeanor battery-family violence. Thomas was arrested by University of Georgia police at 4:40 a.m. ET Monday, according to jail records. Additional details of the incident weren’t immediately available.
According to an Athens-Clarke County Jail official, Thomas — a junior from Eufaula, Alabama — recently transferred to Georgia from Mississippi State. He was released from the Athens-Clarke County Jail on Monday after posting bond.
Thomas faces an immediate suspension after being charged with a felony, according to University of Georgia Athletic Association guidelines. The 6-foot-1, 192 pound wide receiver was a key addition for the Bulldog. Thomas led Mississippi State with 44 receptions for 626 yards with seven touchdowns in 2022. Georgia just lost receiver Adonai Mitchell to the transfer portal, announcing this past Saturday that he’s transferring to Texas.
