Former Seahawks and Ravens safety Earl Thomas was arrested in Orange County, Texas on Friday for violating a protective order two or more times within 12 months.

Thomas allegedly sent threatening text messages to a woman about her and her children. The violation is a third-degree felony, and his arrest comes more than two weeks after an initial arrest warrant was issued on April 27.
