Thomas will likely face an automatic suspension due to Georgia's student-athlete conduct policy.

“We are aware of a reported incident involving conduct by one of our student-athletes. While we are limited in what we can say about the incident, the report is disappointing and not reflective of the high standards we have for our student-athletes on and off the field. In addition to following internal Athletic Association policies, we will be working closely with our administration to ensure we cooperate fully with all law enforcement and campus protocols," Georgia's Athletic Association said in a statement, according to 11 Alive.

Thomas had 44 receptions for 626 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
