We all make mistakes! But, how do you go on a joy ride, damage the vehicle, get suspended from the number #1 college football team in the country and end up facing possible jail time? This could really be on an episode of “Ridiculousness”
According to SB Nation’s Tomahawk Nation, who broke the story?
Florida State sophomore receiver Jesus Wilson was arrested Wednesday on a charge of Grand Theft Auto in the third degree. This, according to the Leon County Sheriff’s booking report. No information is provided in the booking report other than the charge, which is a felony.
On June 11, 2014, Florida State Sophomore WR Jesus “Bobo” Wilson, 19, decided it to take Sebastian Bellini’s scooter, valued at $1000, for a joy ride. In the arrest reports, Wilson initially says he borrowed the scooter from a classmate. He later recanted via email, telling the authorities he took the scooter after noticing the keys were still in the ignition.
Wilson also said he didn’t plan on taking the scooter as long as he did. Which causes me to wonder how long he would’ve kept riding? After all, he obviously fell or ran into something and just said, “Oh well, I already tore it up, might as well keep going!” When you think about it, it all kind of makes you go
As it stands, he is facing third degree Grand Theft Auto charges, which under Florida Law, carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison, five years probation and up to a $5000 fine, upon conviction.
According to Florida State’s code of conduct he’s been suspended from the team, however, he can still practice.
He has a career total 23 receiving yards and is currently working his way up the depth chart to the number one position at slot receiver. This is Wilson’s first offense; hopefully, they’ll go easy on him.
