Florida State Wide Receiver Charged with Grand Theft ... of a Scooter

Florida State Spring Game

Jesus was charged with grand theft of a motor scooter on the Florida State campus last month.


Oh, it was Jesus Wilson, a Florida State wide receiver, not the Son of God. From the Tallahassee Democrat:

On June 11 at 10:20 a.m., a man said he parked his scooter, valued at $1,000, in front of the Love building along Atomic Way. When he returned, the scooter was gone, said court documents.

On June 17, Tallahassee Police officers stopped Wilson while he was driving the stolen scooter, which was now damaged.

Wilson tried to tell cops he borrowed the scooter, but that was obviously BS. Then, he changed his story – the keys were in the scooter, so he borrowed it without asking and was going to return it when finished.

Wilson, a sophomore, had three catches for 23 yards last season but the Seminoles are replacing their three leading pass-catchers – Rashad Greene and Kenny Shaw graduated, and Kelvin Benjamin left early for the NFL – so he had a shot at possibly starting.

This is the second silly arrest for the Seminoles since rallying to beat Auburn for the BCS Title in January. Quarterback Jameis Winston tried to walk out of a grocery store without paying for crabs earlier this summer.
