Thomas’s bravura performance to outdo himself and yet again claim these titles happened the morning of St. Patrick’s Day. Paparazzi photos went viral showing him appearing to pass out in a state of heavy inebriation in the DeSoto lobby. Apparently the operator of the City float wouldn’t let Thomas ride for fear of injury. The photos were so incriminating that Mayor DeLoach felt obliged to issue a (very) brief statement chastising the behavior. The biq question: What will Thomas do next year to defend his titles? We shudder to imagine.
