In his account of the incident, Cifuentes expressed shock at Thomas’s behavior, highlighting that he was a fan of the Saints wide receiver.

While it remains uncertain whether Thomas was arrested, the Saints organization confirmed their awareness of the incident and indicated their ongoing efforts to gather more details. Thomas, whose career has faced challenges due to injuries in recent years, has played in all nine games this season, ranking third on the team in both catches (38) and receiving yards (439). Despite the intense altercation, there is no indication at this time that the incident will affect Thomas’s participation in the upcoming game against Minnesota on Sunday.
