The Minnesota Vikings saw the emergence of two young running backs this past season in Roc Thomas and Mike Boone. The former of these two has found himself on the wrong end of a felony drug possession charge.
Police found 143.28 grams of marijuana in Thomas’ home in January after neighbors complained about the smell. The police also found a vape pen and $16,000 in a nightstand. Thomas had various forms of marijuana in his home in jars, including wax marijuana.
Thomas and his friend told the police that the marijuana was not going to be sold, but they planned on smoking it themselves. The charges do not appear to include Intention to Sell. Thomas is set to appear in court on March 16.
The Vikings released a statement saying. “We are aware of the charges filed against Roc Thomas and have expressed our disappointment directly to Roc for his actions. We will respect both the legal process and the NFL’s disciplinary process.” The undrafted rookie could find himself facing up to five years in prison, or up to $10,000 in fines.
