Controversies and Legal Issues

In 2023, Thomas faced charges of threatening to distribute an intimate image, leading to his suspension by the club. He is scheduled to contest the charge in court on July 18, 2023. This legal issue marked his second run-in with the law during the 2022–23 AFL off-season, following an earlier incident where he was caught driving while his license was suspended. Furthermore, Thomas drew attention for a now-deleted Instagram video where he appeared to be driving with his feet up on the dashboard of a Mercedes.

Tarryn Thomas Suspension

Tarryn Thomas suspension has been verified, leading North Melbourne to promptly terminate his contract. The confirmed 18-game ban stems from recent allegations of misconduct towards a woman in January. North Melbourne has affirmed its support for the AFL’s decision, announcing Thomas’ dismissal in a statement. Chief Executive Jennifer Watt stated that the club had limited options following Thomas’ latest transgression.

“The club has provided Tarryn with significant time, resources and support but we’ve now arrived at a point where the individual’s needs don’t match those of the club,” Watt said.“We know Tarryn needs help – for himself and for the women in his life – but it’s clear the path we’ve taken over the past 12 months hasn’t had the desired impact.
