Wilson, a first-round pick of the Tennessee Titans, was booked into jail at 11:30 p.m. and released at approximately 1:30 a.m., per the newspaper report.
The Tennessee Titans released the following statement:
“We are aware of the situation. This is not conduct that is indicative of the character of our football team and we are working through details on how to proceed.”
The 6-foot-5, 350-pound Wilson has made his fair share of headlines in Nashville, and not all for the right reasons.
Wilson’s name came up in a police report last month and received a trespass warning after he violated Tennessee State campus visitors policy.
“We’re aware of the situation at TSU during a no-visitors policy and continue to stress the importance of good decision making as we go outside the facility,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel told reporters, per the New York Post.
According to the police report Wilson considered jumping off a balcony to avoid police.
Wilson is the second former Georgia first-round NFL pick arrested this offseason.
Deandre Baker, the first-round pick of the New York Giants in the 2019 NFL Draft, faces four counts of armed robbery stemming from an alleged event that occurred in May.
