After being arrested for DWI down in North Carolina, Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon posted bond after a convicted felon named Haydn “Fats” Thomas bailed him out, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
Gordon’s $500 bond was paid by Haydn “Fats” Thomas, who has a long history in the Raleigh area.
A well-known hustler in the Triangle, Thomas has been connected to other automotive misadventures.
When former North Carolina basketball star P.J. Hairston was stopped and busted for possession of marijuana, he was driving a car which was rented by Thomas. Hairston ended up tossed out of UNC and spent a year in the D-League before he was drafted by the Hornets this summer.
Thomas is described as a “party promoter” and is a convicted felon.
Not only can’t Gordon keep himself clean, but he obviously hangs around with the wrong crowd as well.
