Drexel junior guard Derrick Thomas, who missed the Dragons' season-finale 73-72 win at Old Dominion after being placed on interim suspension by the school, won't compete in this weekend's Colonial Athletic Association tournament in Richmond, Va.
According to the school, Thomas voluntarily surrendered to the Philadelphia Police Department's Northwest Detectives after being charged with assault and criminal trespass. The university's suspension of Thomas is pending the outcome of the investigation.
While Drexel declined to make further comment, a police source said that the incident took place in December at the La Salle campus. According to the source, Thomas came in voluntarily and was released on his own recognizance. A court date has not been set.
