Earlier this month, police arrested running back Roc Thomas.

Court papers say neighbors complained about a strong smell of marijuana coming from his Mendota Heights apartment.

Police say they found the drug and paraphernalia all over his place.

The 23-year-old joined the Vikings as a free agent last year from Jacksonville State University.
