 ORANGE PARK, Fla. (AP) - Denver Broncos defensive tackle Marcus D. Thomas was arrested after police said they found cocaine and a handgun in a pickup truck during a traffic stop in north Florida.
Thomas, of Aurora, Colo., and the truck's driver were arrested early Saturday after police received a call from the Florida Highway Patrol asking them to look for the pickup truck for a possible impaired driver.
Thomas was charged with possession of a controlled substance. The police report said both men denied any knowledge of the cocaine. Police also said a semiautomatic pistol was seen inside the glove box of the pickup truck.
Both men were released from jail Sunday after each posted a $2,500 bond, jail officials said.
Thomas' attorney, Charles Truncale, said his client was in a vehicle when police found a small bag of what appeared to be cocaine.
``He did not possess it, nor did he have any knowledge of it, until the stop of the vehicle. That's what happened. He is not guilty of the charge for which he has been arrested,'' Truncale said.
Thomas, who also played for the University of Florida and Mandarin High School in Jacksonville, was suspended most of his final college season in 2006 after a positive drug test, then for violating curfew and drug rehabilitation class provisions of a contract he signed to remain with the team.
Thomas, drafted in the fourth round last April, just finished his rookie season with the Broncos and had 20 tackles in 16 games.
