Isaiah Wilson might have the quickest fall from grace that has ever been seen in the NFL.
According to the Barrow County Sheriff’s Department in Georgia via Broadway Sports, the former first round pick was arrested at gunpoint back in January and subsequently charged with multiple offenses following a high-speed chase in the Peach State.
Here are the details, per Glennon, who cites the police report:
“According to the Barrow County Sheriff’s Department incident report, the pursuit of Wilson began at about 3:50 a.m. on Jan. 7, when Officer Stephen Kinney observed a dark-colored Dodge Charger with Tennessee license plates fly past him traveling eastward on University Parkway. Activating his radar, Kinney clocked the vehicle going 123 miles per hour, then activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to catch the vehicle and initiate a traffic stop.
Kinney began to catch up to the vehicle before he noticed it accelerating away, and he advised his dispatch office that speeds of the chase had reached 140 miles per hour, according to the report. A second officer joined in the pursuit at about that same time.”
This arrest happened before the Titans traded him to the Miami Dolphins and just days before the Titans played the Baltimore Ravens in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
The report says the original rsponding officer stopped pursuing because of the high speeds the car was traveling at. The car was eventually discovered crashed on the side of the road by an undercover ICE agent, who held the occupants at gun point.
Inside the car was a metal grinder containing 3.4 grams of marijuana and the woman Wilson was with was discovered to have .2 grams of Acid in her purse.
Wilson was charged with “fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer for a felony offense; speeding in a construction zone; reckless driving; marijuana possession of less than one ounce; possession and use of drug-related objects; and reckless conduct.”
Wilson’s time with the Dolphins ended in days after he showed up late to his physical and team orientation, and not showing up to voluntary workouts.
