KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee offensive tackle Coleman Thomas has been arrested on a felony theft charge and removed from all team activities.

University of Tennessee police say a dorm resident said an Xbox and three video games worth $640 were stolen from his room March 13. Police said a check through online leads showed Thomas sold the games to a store.

Thomas was arrested Wednesday and released on $2,000 bond. An arraignment is set for April 7.

Knoxville radio station WNML first reported the arrest.

Tennessee athletic department spokesman Jimmy Stanton said Thursday that, “We are aware of the situation and are awaiting further details” while adding that Thomas had been removed from all team activities.

Thomas played 11 games and made five starts at right tackle as a freshman last season.
