It wasn't long ago that J.T. Thomas told Windy City Gridiron about a little boy with epilepsy that he was surprising with Super Bowl tickets, but today Thomas is getting attention for a different reason.

The Chicago Bears linebacker was arrested early this morning in West Virginia for possession of marijuana, after being pulled over for driving the wrong way down a one-way street and exceeding the posted speed limit.

Thomas is the second Chicago Bear to be arrested on drug charges in recent weeks, although his plight is not nearly as serious as former WR Sam Hurd's.

Let's just hope the team can make it though the rest of the off-season without any more incidents... Stay tuned.
