Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas was arrested on Thursday for a failed court appearance.

Denver Broncos tight end Julius Thomas was arrested for a failed court appearance. 

According to Jordan Steffen of the Denver Post, Thomas' arrest stems from him being charged with failure to yield to an emergency vehicle on January 25, a misdemeanor charge. He did not appear in court on March 21, the day when the hearing was set. 

Because of this, he was taken into custody by Arapahoe County Sheriff's deputies on August 28. He posted a $500 on that same day, per Steffen, citing court records. 

Dan Hanzus of NFL.com reports Thomas was asked to pull overon that day by a deputy for speeding in the 8100 block of South Potomac Street at 6:30 a.m. The deputy checked for any outstanding warrants and discovered Thomas had one for his failed court appearance. 

The Broncos released a statement saying,"We were notified of the issue involving Julius Thomas when it occurred on Aug. 28. It was addressed internally and is being resolved."

Thomas' incident is the latest in a spate of arrests involving the Broncos organization. Linebacker Von Miller was arrested on August 13 for also failing to appear in court due to a traffic violation.

Offensive lineman Quentin Salisbury was taken into police custody on May 19 on suspicion of DUI. Two Broncos executives, Tom Heckert and Matt Russell "were cited for impaired driving," several months ago, per Fox 31 Denver. 

The 25-year-old Thomas is a third-year player is expected to start at tight end in the season opener against the Baltimore Ravens on September 5.
