Just in time for training camp, the Dallas Cowboys received troubling news regarding one of their linebackers. Damien Wilson, who played in approximately 27% of the Cowboys’ defensive snaps in 2016, was expected to be an important part of the Cowboys’ 2017 defense. He may yet be a big contributor this year, but he is now facing criminal charges and a possibly lengthy suspension by the NFL.
Wilson was arrested on July 4, 2017 in a Frisco, Texas parking lot after he was alleged to have backed his SUV into a woman who was attempting to save the space for her friend. Wilson is also alleged to have brandished a rifle, but the accounts are conflicting. Wilson himself has blamed “road rage” for the incident.
The Dallas Morning News reports: “Wilson, 24, has posted bond and been released, police spokesman Ryan Chandler said. Each charge carried a $10,000 bond. The charges are second-degree felonies and, if convicted, Wilson could face two to 20 years in state prison and up to a $10,000 fine.”
