One of the University of Oklahoma's best defensive players is in trouble again. Starting cornerback Jordan Thomas was arrested early Thursday.

Thomas faces charges for public intoxication along with assault and battery and interference, according to an arrest report at the Cleveland County Sheriff's office. 

This isn't the first time Thomas has found trouble, seeing he spent a night in jail back in December after failing to appear in court for a traffic citation, and was suspended for the Tulsa game on Sept. 19, for undisclosed reasons. He was also suspended for the first quarter of the season opener against Akron for a disciplinary issue. 

The arrest comes as a huge blow for the OU secondary, since Thomas was already walking on thin ice from troubles in the past, and one can assume he would at least be suspended for the season opener against Houston on September 3. Thomas recorded five interceptions last season, and was expected to be the leader of the secondary with the departure of Zack Sanchez, who left early for the NFL.
