AP via wrote:FAIRHOPE, Ala. -- Former NFL running back Thurman Thomas was arrested over the weekend and charged with marijuana possession, according to police.

Thomas, who was in town to play in a charity golf tournament, was arrested at the Grand Hotel around 2 a.m. Saturday. He had one partially smoked marijuana cigarette in his possession and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or marijuana, Fairhope police spokesman Cpl. Craig Sawyer said Monday.

Thomas did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press Monday. His wife, Patti, said her husband was "caught up in an uncomfortable situation with a couple of his buddies."

"Basically, what he has said was some other guys were with him and because it was near his room, he got caught up in it," Patti Thomas said. "He's not claiming any responsibility for it."

Thomas, 37, was charged with second-degree possession of marijuana, a Class A misdemeanor reserved for people who have the drug for personal use.

Thomas was booked at Fairhope City Jail and was released in time to play his round of golf Saturday morning.

"There was no disorderly conduct or belligerent behavior, and he did not resist arrest," Fairhope police Cpl. Craig Sawyer Monday.

In 13 seasons with the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins, Thomas rushed for 12,074 yards and 65 touchdowns. He played in four straight Super Bowls as a member of the Bills, from 1991 through 1994.

Thomas was a five-time Pro-Bowl selection and was named the NFL's Most Valuable Player in 1991.

Last year, he admitted to being a recovering alcoholic and said he had spent 28 days in a rehabilitation program in Minnesota.
