By Chip Patterson | Staff Writer

Florida State wide receiver Jesus "Bobo" Wilson was reportedly arrested and charged with vehicular grand theft in the third degree, according to a Leon County Sheriff's Office booking report.

SB Nation's Tomahawk Nation first reported the charge, which is a felony, and pointed out that Wilson could be suspended indefinitely until the matter is resolved, according to FSU policy.

This is Wilson's first brush with the law during his time at Florida State of which Tomahawk Nation is aware. Under Florida law, the charge of grand theft auto in the third degree carries a maximum sentence of five yeas in prison, five years probation and up to a $5,000 fine, upon conviction.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Wilson admitted to taking a motor scooter on FSU's campus last month and later crashing the vehicle. Wilson told authorities the keys were in the ignition and "he did not plan to keep the scooter as long as he did."

Wilson is a speedy, 5-10 wide receiver from Miami, Fla. who saw limited action as a freshman in 2013 but is expected to work his way into the rotation this fall.
