The college football arrest of the year award was handed out early, as a Beaver freshmen snuck into a house, stripped nude, and attempted to tackle officers.

Tyler Thomas redshirted last season, giving him plenty of time to mastermind his Sunday morning arrest.

At about 4:51 a.m., police were called to 519 N.W. 14th Street after a 32-year-old woman reported there was a naked man in the upstairs office of her residence.

When officers arrived, they ordered him to get on the ground several times, but he refused.

Then Thomas, who had reportedly been drinking, got into a "three-point stance" and lunged at the officers, who Tased him.


Thomas was charged with criminal trespass, criminal mischief and resisting arrest, and was kicked off the team today. If 2009 was Oregon's year of shenanigans, 2010 is shaping up to be the real Civil War.
