Wednesday July 30th, 2014

Cam Thomas a nosetackle for the Steelers, is being sued by an ex-girlfriend who says he was physically abusive and gave her a sexually transmitted disease. 

ABC 10 in San Diego has obtained the lawsuit, which was filed May 30 in a San Diego court and outlines the details of the case. The woman, identified as "Adrienne," is suing for "sexual battery, assault and battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud through intentional concealment and negligence."

More from the suit (via ABC 10): 

In October 2010, Adrienne E. allegedly discovered information about “other women and gay porn sites” on the computer at their San Diego residence. She claims she confronted him about what she found while they were in a car on a drive home after practice. She said Thomas was behind the wheel, and when they got on Interstate 15, he sped up “put his hands on the plaintiff’s face and said ‘we both have to die one day."

Adrienne E. said Thomas then “slammed her head against the passenger side window with his right hand… reached across her, unbuckled her seat belt and opened the passenger door. With her door opened and the seatbelt off, (Thomas) tried to push her out the door of the speeding vehicle on Interstate 15.”

The woman also says Thomas gave her a sexually transmitted disease. The woman claims that she was tested for STDs prior to her relationship with Thomas and the results came back clean. It wasn't until after she had begun having unprotected sex with Thomas that she tested positive for genital herpes.She claims Thomas told her the "sores on his penis were caused by a zipper malfunction," according to TMZ.

Thomas was a fifth-round draft pick by the Chargers in 2010. He spent the first four years of his career in San Diego and made 11 starts last season. In March, he signed with the Steelers.
