It’s been a while since we had a jock Tasered by cops. And we can’t ever recall one being zapped by two cops at the same time. But then again, we haven’t had a story before about a allegedly drunk, naked college football player (all 6’2″ 301 lbs of him) breaking into a stranger’s home in the middle of the night, then getting down into a 3-point stance to charge arresting officers. He might have had it coming.
You’re truly one of a kind, Tyler Patrick Thomas, freshman offense lineman for the Oregon State Beavers.
Officers responded to a report of an intoxicated stranger inside a Corvallis home at 5 a.m. Sunday. The residents told police the man had done damage to a computer in an office room, police said. When police arrived, the man didn’t comply with instructions from officers.
“He got down into a 3-point stance, like football players do, like a lineman, and lunged at the officers,” Sgt. Mike Mann with the Corvallis Police Department told KVAL News. The two officers both fired their Tasers at the same time, Mann said.

This is probably one “Friend Request” this guy should have ignored.
A former world-class gymnast and coach is facing charges he raped a teenage girl 10 years ago after authorities located him through Facebook. Bulgarian native Kaloyan Gerogiev Kaloyanov is accused of raping a teenage girl in 2000 while working as a coach in Fremont. The teenage gymnast told police that Kaloyanov attacked her twice. The girl reported the incidents two years later, after turning 18 and moving to Southern California.
Kaloyanov was questioned in 2002 and claimed the sex was consensual. He then fled the country, leaving behind his wife and daughter, and evaded police for eight years. Authorities looking into the cold case found out through Facebook that he was working on a cruise ship, according to The Oakland Tribune.
You may want to read this article from our friends over at Deadspin.com before you vote on the public funding of that new baseball stadium in your town. Seems regardless of how much “poverty” Major League Baseball owners claim, the reality is that regardless of the size of the market, whether the team is “rich” or “poor”, these things are money machines.
Not sure how they got these documents, but my guess is that it will not make the owners or MLB officials fans.
