NFL | Same Dallas officer detained Z. Thomas' wife

Todd Archer, of The Dallas Morning News, reports free-agent LB Zach Thomas' (Cowboys) wife, Maritza Thomas, was pulled over by Dallas police officer Robert Powell July 27, 2008, issued five tickets and detained for roughly five hours after she made an illegal U-turn. The charges of failure to show proof of insurance, running a red light, having an improper address and not having a registrations sticker on the windshield were later dismissed. Powell was the same officer who recently detained Houston Texans RB Ryan Moats as he and his family rushed to a hospital to see a dying loved one. Zach Thomas said, "This in no way compares to what happened to Ryan Moats and his family. But we wanted to tell our story, not knowing how many others have been affected by Officer Powell. We know the vast majority of the Dallas police force are good and professional people, but this guy just seems excessive."
