Florida State RB James Wilder Jr. Arrested On Felony Charges, According To Report

FSU running back James Wilder Jr. has been arrested after attempting to prevent a law enforcement officer from arresting his girlfriend.

Tomahawk Nation is reporting that James Wilder Jr., a sophomore running back for the Florida St. Seminoles, has been arrested after attempting to prevent a law enforcement officer from arresting his girlfriend.

Wilder has been charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence, both felonies, according to the processing officer.

Wilder's girlfriend, Bianca Carmada, was being arrested on a warrant for failure to appear stemming from a prior charge of criminal mischief when Wilder intervened.

Sources tell Tomahawk Nation that Wilder allegedly grabbed his girlfriend away from the deputy as he was trying to arrest her and then allegedly slapped the deputy's hand. The deputy was unharmed.

Wilder was released on bond Wednesday, Carmada is still in custody.

According to Tomahawk Nation, Florida State's policy is typically to suspend those charged with a felony until the case has been resolved. No official word has come down from the university or head coach Jimbo Fisher yet.
