Jesus Wilson Arrested for Stealing Scooter

Florida State sophomore wide receiver Jesus "Bobo" Wilson has been charged with third degree felony grand theft auto for stealing another student's motorized scooter on the Florida State campus.

Florida State sophomore receiver Jesus Wilson was arrested on Wednesday on a charge of third degree grand theft auto.

The Florida Times-Union's Garry Smits initially reported on the basis of an anonymous source that the arrest was related to a long-running ownership dispute, but the arrest report appears to contradict that story.

According to the arrest report, Wilson was stopped while riding a motor scooter that had been reported stolen several days earlier and ultimately admitted to taking (and crashing) the vehicle.

This is Wilson's first known brush with the law. Wilson caught three passes for 23 yards and had eight punt returns for 89 yards last season. He was in line for one of the starting receiver positions in the fall after an outstanding spring, but that future is now clouded as Florida State University policy is that any athlete charged with a felony is automatically suspended until the charge is resolved.
