This article has been updated with new information (3/31/14)
Fans of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Deonte Thompson got the opportunity to see him in all of his glory on Wednesday evening, or so they thought.
A man who looked to be Deonte Thompson was arrested after climbing on top of a an SUV, removing all of his clothing then taunting police officers as they tried to talk him down. Police believe he was likely high on PCP at the time.
To make things even worse, the SUV on which he stood contained a family including several small children. The driver of that SUV, Jose Goldsmith of Baltimore, was heard yelling from his car, “Yo man, I got kids in here!” as the man stood naked above them.
The man stopped traffic and and yelled as passers-by for nearly 15 minutes before police were able to subdue him.
In February the actual Deonte Thompson was arrested for possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Police did not release the name of the man arrested in this recent incident so rumors have continue to swirl that the man could have actually been Thompson himself Several people within the Thompson camp have refuted this claim and we have found no evidence of new arrest records.
Thompson played at Florida and was signed by the Ravens as an undrafted free agent in 2012. This has come at possibly the worst time for the Ravens as they are still trying to decide what to do with running back Ray Rice who was arrested for assault just last month.
