Florida State sophomore wide receiver Jesus Wilson was arrested on Wednesday night, per a report by Chris Nee of Noles247.
According to the report, Wilson was arrested for 3rd Degree Grand Theft Auto by the Leon Country Sheriff’s Department. The charge is a felony in the state of Florida and per Florida State athletic policy, Wilson is automatically suspended because of the felony charge. He won’t be reinstated until the charge is reduced or dropped all together.
FSU head coach Jimbo Fisher could still administer his own penalties even if the charge is reduced or dropped in the future.
Wilson saw some playing time in his freshman season last year, catching two passes for 23 yards and seeing time in both the punt and kick return game.
Florida State will be looking to replace the graduated Kenny Shaw and Kelvin Benjamin, who left following his redshirt sophomore season. Wilson could’ve been in for an increased role with those two gone, however he has bigger worries today.
If convicted of the current charge, Wilson is facing a maximum sentence of five years in prison, five years of probation, or a fine up to $5,000.
