Denver Broncos defensive tackle Marcus Thomas, who was suspended and eventually kicked off the UF football team after failing multiple drug tests in 2006, was arrested in Clay County and charged with possession of a controlled substance early Saturday morning, according to a Florida (Jacksonville) Times-Union report.

Thomas' agent, Richard Burnoski, confirmed the arrest and that a small trace of cocaine was found in a car Thomas was a passenger in but said it did not belong to Thomas, according to a Colorado Springs Gazette report.

Burnoski also said that the driver of the car admitted to police that the bag of cocaine was his.

In the Times-Union report, Thomas' attorney said that Thomas did not possess or have knowledge that the cocaine was in the car.

If his agent and attorney are correct, it looks like a crisis may be averted for Thomas, who was released from jail on Sunday morning, according to the Gazette report.
