The Wisconsin Department of Natural resources has accused Cleveland Browns offensive tackle Joe Thomas of committing environmental violations on hunting land in Wisconsin, according to a report from the Associated Press.
Thomas, a native of Brookfield, Wisc., could be fined as much as $10,000 daily, the report says.
Thomas allegedly did not have permits to do work on the land. Thomas allegedly dredged a pond and built bridges and dams, according to the report.
Other reported accusations include discharging manure into a wetland.
Thomas, 30, is in his eighth season with the Browns since being selected in the first round of the 2007 draft. The seven-time Pro Bowler has helped the Browns post a 7-7 record so far this season.
Cleveland faces the Panthers in Carolina on Sunday.
