Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers draft pick and former Mississippi State cornerback Johnthan Banks was arrested early Wednesday morning on charges of domestic violence and aggravated assault.

Banks had a bond of 10,000 dollars.

Banks won the Jim Thorpe Award with the Bulldogs in 2012 as the best defensive back in the country and was named an All-American.

Remember, he was a second round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013 but hasn’t played in the NFL since 2017. Banks played 57 games over a five-year career in the NFL in which he recorded seven interceptions.
