Bears LB Thomas arrested for marijuana possession

Chicago Bears linebacker J.T. Thomas was way street.

Thomas was stopped at 3:55 a.m. in Morgantown, according to West Virginia MetroNews Network.

The criminal complaint says Thomas pulled a bundle from his glove compartment after he was asked to provide his registration and it contained two plastic bags of a green leafy substance that appeared to be marijuana, according to the report.

The Bears released a statement later Monday saying they were aware of the incident and "are currently gathering information to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the arrest."

Thomas played college football in Morgantown for West Virginia but did not appear in a game for the Bears during his rookie season. He was in Morgantown for the weekend raising money for his foundation, West Virginia MetroNews Network reported.
