New Georgia wide receiver Rodarius “RaRa” Thomas was arrested Monday on charges of felony false imprisonment and misdemeanor battery-family violence, according to authorities.

Thomas was booked into the Athens-Clarke County jail at 4:04 a.m. ET and is being held without bond, jail officials said. Details of the incident were not immediately available.

The 6-foot-1, 192-pound junior was a high-profile transfer this offseason from Mississippi State, where he led the Bulldogs with 626 receiving yards. He caught 44 passes, including seven touchdowns, in 12 games in 2022.

Thomas, a native of Eufala, Ala., posted 62 catches for 878 yards and 12 touchdowns in two seasons in Starkville.
