Florida State tailback James Wilder Jr. arrested

Authorities say Florida State tailback James Wilder Jr. was

arrested after a confrontation with deputies.

Florida’s Leon County Sheriff’s Office reports the 19-year-old

was at a Tallahassee apartment Tuesday when deputies went to arrest

a 20-year-old woman for missing a court appearance. As a deputy

escorted the woman to a patrol car, a sheriff’s report says, Wilder

stepped between the deputy and the woman and pushed the deputy.

Wilder was arrested and charged with obstructing a law

enforcement officer without violence and battery on the officer.

Jail records show he was released on $2,000 bail.

Wilder’s first season with the Seminoles was in 2011. He is the

son of James Wilder, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ all-time career

rushing leader.

Florida State’s sports information department didn’t immediately

comment on the development.
