Bobcats Forward Tyrus Thomas’ Wife Arrested After Bar Fight

ttttJamie Patrice Thomas, who is the wife of Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyrus Thomas, was arrested outside of a Charlotte bar around 2:30 a.m. Tuesday morning at the NC Music Factory outside of the Label night club.  The club was housing a Chris Paul hosted party, and the party got a little out of hand toward the latter portion of the evening thanks to Jamie and some other ladies.

According to the Charlotte Observer:

Jamie Patrice Thomas, 26, wife of Charlotte Bobcats forward Tyrus Thomas, was arrested during one altercation. Four people were arrested in that incident, including Shassity Stevenson, 28; Sascha Smith, 22; and Morgan Williams, 22.

Thomas was charged with DWI, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and resisting a public officer.

Thomas and three other women tried to rob another woman of her cell phone and purse before hitting a security guard at the scene, according to the police report.

When officers arrived, Thomas was in a car in the parking lot and tried to leave the scene, hitting a security guard with her car for the second time, police said.

Charlotte police then had to force Thomas out of the vehicle.

“Officers gained entry to the vehicle by breaking the driver window. Officers were able to open the door after breaking the window,” CMPD said in a statement. “A female inside of the vehicle, Shassity Stevenson, began pulling Thomas back inside of the vehicle away from the officers. During the struggle officers had to utilize force in order to extract Thomas from the vehicle via the driver’s side door of the vehicle.”

To make matters worse, while the police were dealing with that fiasco, another fight broke out which resulted in two more arrests.
