Wilford charged with resisting arrest, trespassing

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Former Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Ernest Wilford has been charged with resisting arrest and trespassing following a disturbance at a bar.

Wilford, who played two games for the Jaguars this season, posted a $5,000 bond and was released from the Duval County jail Friday.

According to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Wilford refused police advice to leave the bar early Friday, pushed one officer and was subdued by another using a taser.

Police say they responded to the bar after a 21-year-old woman complained to management that Wilford was grabbing her. The woman says she asked Wilford not to touch her, but according to the arrest report he said he could do whatever he wanted.

Wilford, a fourth-round draft pick in 2004, has 156 career receptions.
