Dallas Cowboys Player Charged With Aggravated Assault in Collin County Following Parking Dispute

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.”
