Wiggins was clocked going 52 miles per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone. It was then determined that not only was Wiggins going a little too fast, but he also shouldn’t have been driving the vehicle in the first place.
“As (the officer) ran his driver’s license doing a check, it returned for a failure to appear so he arrested him for that,” said Hilda Sorrow, Athens-Clarke County police spokeswoman.
Wiggins’ license had been suspended after he failed to appear at a court hearing, but the spokeswoman wouldn’t go into detail about that aspect of it, other than to say that his license had been suspended.
Wiggins started eight games as a freshman in 2013 and led the team with two interceptions and threw in 19 tackles.
