Former University of Texas and NFL safety Earl Thomas has a warrant out for his arrest over violating a court protective order by sending his estranged wife threatening messages.

An Austin judge signed the arrest warrant on April 27 charging Thomas with a third-degree felony for allegedly violating the protective order a minimum of two times inside the past yr. As of Saturday night, Thomas has yet to report back to the Travis County district court despite his agent texting him concerning the arrest warrant.

“They were consciously and collectively working together to see his kids,” Trey Dolezal, an Austin lawyer and sports agent said. “I do not really understand how he may very well be in violation by working together to go to along with his children.”

The arrest affidavit, by which police allege Thomas violated a protective order that was issued in May 2021 by a Travis County civil court judge, was signed by Magistrate George Thomas. That protective order said Thomas could only communicate along with his kid’s mother through a co-parenting app.
