Cam Thomas faces a Ron Mexico-style lawsuit

Thomas AP

Two years before Mike Vick became known as a dogfighter, he was sued for giving a woman herpes.  The case introduced the football-following world to Ron Mexico, the alias Vick allegedly used when seeking treatment.

Now, Steelers defensive lineman Cam Thomas faces a similar lawsuit.  Without the creative alternative name.

Via 10News.com in San Diego, a woman filed on May 30 a civil complaint against Thomas for sexual battery, assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud through intentional concealment, and negligence.

The woman, who sued under the name Adrienne E., accuses Thomas of attempting to shove her from a moving car, using a “hot flat iron on her hair” during an argument, and choking her until she passed out.

Adrienne E. also claims that the couple had unprotected sex on multiple occasions, and she contends that she at one point asked Thomas about bruises and sores in the area of his genitalia.  He allegedly explained that the condition arose from the “girdle he wears in practice and during workouts.”  She claims that she contracted herpes from Thomas.

Via TMZ, a lawyer who represents Thomas claims that the plaintiff is a “bitter girl” who is “angry, vindictive and mean” because Thomas has “another woman, and a baby in his life.”

Thomas becomes the second Steelers player this year accused of assaulting a female.  Last week, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and his twin brother, Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, were sued by a trio of persons who contend they were assaulted at the brothers’ birthday party in Miami.  Maurkice allegedly punched a woman in the face, rendering her unconscious.  He denies the allegations.

Thomas signed a two-year, $4 million contract with the Steelers in free agency.

    I’m starting to get very jaded on all these lawsuits, no matter what player from what team. So many just seem like complete money grabs. I was reading about this already and she makes some wild claims, like he tried to set her bed on fire. Really? This all happened like 3 years ago too and it’s only now she’s doing this? Thomas’ lawyer says he’ll have Thomas tested for herpes, and if it’s negative, this woman is automatically just another gold digger.

    So long as he doesn’t have a scant amount of marijuana metabolites in his bloodstream, he should be good to go.

    I heard he got it from a toilet seat in Milledgeville Georgia. Stay classy Steelers…

    Fits right in with Ben and the Steelers

    Send them all to jail, kick the Steelers organization out of the league, strip them of their Lombardi trophies!

    Or maybe we should wait until all of the facts are available before execution of personal character and a life sentence.

    He don’t have 99 problems…he’s got only one.

    Shoot, glanced over the “flat iron on her hair” part. The bastard.

  11. sumkat says: Jul 30, 2014 3:15 AM

    I still have my #7 Falcons Mexico jersey

    NFL was slow to block those from the custom jersey page

    “The woman, who sued under the name Adrienne E., accuses Thomas of attempting to shove her from a moving car, using a “hot flat iron on her hair” during an argument, and choking her until she passed out.”

    That type of party will cost you 10 large in vegas.

    This would make a great episode of Judge Judy.

    He has to be related to the Pounceys

  15. bgsusteelers says: Jul 30, 2014 5:05 AM

    Ah yes. I remember clearly being intimate with a woman and seeing some suspicious looking bumps and sores all over her genitalia before sealing the deal. After all she just said they were goosebumps. Good enough for me!

  16. laxer37 says: Jul 30, 2014 5:37 AM

    Good news, since this altercation involved a woman, he’s only facing a 2-game suspension at worst. Thanks NFL!

  17. ravenswhat says: Jul 30, 2014 7:03 AM

    Interesting. Steelers fans will be a bit quiet on this topic won’t you?

  18. steelerdynasty2010 says: Jul 30, 2014 7:19 AM

    as long as i hear calls for patience, understanding, empathy, and forgiveness from Ravens’ fans who have shown an exceptional capacity to do so, I’m good!

  19. pittspuke7 says: Jul 30, 2014 7:35 AM

    Since being tebowed out of the playoffs the steelers have o winning seasons and o playoff appearances.

  20. catfish252 says: Jul 30, 2014 8:15 AM

    Not to minimize the accusations but obviously this did not happen on just one date. I’m hoping God forbid if my daughter gets involved with some guy who tries to push her from a moving car that she will have enough common sense to not go back for the hot iron treatments or the choke hold demonstration.

    Who would have thought the Bengals would have been the quietest team this offseason? That division has been an embarrassment to the NFL this offseason.

  22. inmisawa says: Jul 30, 2014 9:46 AM

    Thanks for taking him off out hand, Pittsburg!

  23. scoobies05 says: Jul 30, 2014 10:03 AM

    dynasty.. im a ravens fan and I’m with u. let’s wait until we get all the facts before we make judgement. on the surface it looks awful. and if he did it he will be punished. but I’m not ready to condemn him, the team, it’s fans, and the whole city of Pittsburgh. I hope what he is accused of isn’t true, and if it is We will see what happens

  24. khar9 says: Jul 30, 2014 10:09 AM

    Did all those things happen at the same time ? He probably tried to catch her as she was falling out of the car and accidentally grabbed her by her neck and in the process her hair got messed up and like a gentlemen tried to fix it with the iron.

    Of course you can’t say anything bad when you support the most shameless franchise in American sports. But yes we should apply the Raven video rule with an exception…..if it shows an unconscious women something bad happened and the player gets more than a slap on the wrist and cheers at practice.

    What the heck is going on in this division? First “The Baltimore NFL Franchise” and now the “Pittsburgh NFL Franchise”

  27. jtbsteeler says: Jul 30, 2014 12:39 PM

    I will not be gentle when we start the season 7-0.

    If this turns out to be true, Roger’s reputation for coming down on domestic violence will precede him. Cam be prepared to pay….7 Chuck E Cheese Skee-Ball Redemption tickets & your PS-4 taken away for a week may be coming.

    well you made several points. so How about focusing on the point at hand. but I know. it’s a Steeler so no biggie. any comment on this being the second Steeler accused of v violence on women in a week. and the Steelers still employing Ben. of course not. you’re too much of a hypocrite for that. it’s a shame u think u represent the Steelers fans. most of them laugh at u

  31. scoobies05 says: Jul 30, 2014 2:57 PM

    jb. there is absolutely nothing to worry about. because unless u Are talking about your season on Madden we both know that isn’t happening
