The NFL’s Damien Wilson was arrested in Texas



National Football League (NFL) linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested late Tuesday in Frisco, TX, according to ESPN.

Frisco police reportedly charged Wilson, 24, with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon following the incident that evening.

Wilson allegedly “intentionally backed his truck into a female while parking” at Toyota Stadium during Frisco’s Freedom Fest, according to the police report.

The Dallas Cowboys player then allegedly “brandished a rifle at another male, causing him to be in fear.”

Some Twitter users on Wednesday criticized Wilson over his reported arrest, which occurred during the NFL’s off season.

ESPN reported Wednesday that Wilson was released from the Frisco Detention Center on a $10,000 bond for each count.

Wilson could reportedly face sanctions from the NFL’s personal conduct policy in the form of a fine or suspension even if the charges against him are dropped.

The linebacker played in every game last season, making six starts heading towards a 2017 as an expected Cowboys starter.

Dallas coaches attributed Wilson with 35 tackles, ½ sacks, four tackles for loss, three quarterback pressures and one pass deflection in the 2016 season.

Cowboys cornerback Nolan Carroll was charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI) after driving along the wrong side of the road.

Carroll may suffer a two-game suspension under the NFL’s substance abuse policy following the incident.
