Jordan Thomas, Oklahoma’s All-Big 12 cornerback who spent some time in jail last weekend over an unpaid speeding ticket, will start the Orange Bowl against Clemson, Bob Stoops affirmed Wednesday.
“Just a mix-up… with the family paying a traffic ticket,” Stoops said. “Nothing else to talk about. It’s pretty simple. That happens to everybody.”
Oklahoma Highway Patrol ticketed Thomas for going 94 miles per hour in a 75 MPH zone July 24. In November, he was issued a bench warrant in Grady County for failure to appear for the violation. By then his fine had escalated to $321.50.
Thomas was booked into Grady County jail last Saturday. He was released Monday morning, when he plead guilty to the offense and paid the fine. (Tulsa World)
