BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - New York Knicks coach Isiah Thomas' 19-year-old son has been arrested for underage drinking.
Joshua Isiah Thomas was charged with illegal consumption of alcohol and being a minor in a tavern, both Class C misdemeanors; and disorderly conduct, a Class B misdemeanor, early Tuesday morning, according to Bloomington police.
The younger Thomas is a student at Indiana University, where his father won a national championship in 1981. Joshua Thomas doesn't play basketball at the school.
Thomas and two friends were at the bar Kilroy's on Kirkwood when Thomas attempted to order a drink and started talking with another man, according to the police report. Thomas told police the man punched him, causing a laceration above the right eye.
Other witnesses said Thomas was hit with a beer bottle.
Thomas was taken to a hospital, and police were called around 1:20 a.m. Tuesday. Officers said Thomas appeared intoxicated, with slurred speech and bloodshot eyes. He became irate and started shouting obscenities at officers at the hospital, after his friends got into an argument with police.
Thomas told officers he wanted to pursue criminal charges if they found the man who hit him.
The Knicks have said Isiah Thomas won't comment on the case.
