Thomas was pulled over on Feb. 2 by Clark County Sheriff’s Deputies on East Main Street for making a lane violation and a turn signal violation, according to a police report. Thomas pulled over into the parking lot of CVS Pharmacy and attempted to get out the car. Thomas allegedly told deputies his name was “Bryant Thompson” and that his birthday was “2-6-1988.”
