The 19-year-old was charged with battery on an officer and resisting an officer with violence. A public information release confirming the incident stated that Wilder had been interfering with the arrest of Bianca Camarda, who reports later identified as the tailback's girlfriend. Wilder reportedly shouted at officers and pushed a deputy before officers regained controlled of the situation and he was arrested.

Wilder, Jr. was one of the top running backs in the country coming out of high school and the headline recruit in the Seminoles class of 2011. The rising sophomore struggled during his first season in Tallahassee however, totaling 160 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries last year.

If you cuss at the police... BATTERY! That's the law. You shove a police being a man and trying to protect your loved one... battery with violence. Simple. Just know what the police know. If your stuoid then play the race card and al that other politically correct horsecrap. Get real. Know the law and live by it. Incredibly stupid rant!

You're talking about stuff that happened in the 80s and 90s?

Gator fans should probably just keep their mouth shut on this one. Your players get arrested more than anyone so you have no room to talk
Hush Husky fan...obviously you've only followed college football since Urban Meyer joined the Gators...FSU had just as many crooks if not more when they were a regular natio
nal title contender durning the 90s.

That is hilarious coming from a Gator fan. Considering UF's arrest record was so large that it was chronicled by HBO and USA Today, I hardly think you have room to talk.
Whatever semenhole fan...you guys had just as many if not more in the 80s and 90s...you didn't get the name "Free Shoes U" for nothing.

Who cares. Everybody knows that even if FSU manages to win the ACC crown, they will just get stomped in a BCS Bowl. That is the way of the ACC and the conference's marvelous 2-13 BCS Bowl record.

Are you for real Teres? Overzealous? Seriously? What civil rights? Arresting his girlfriend was none of his business. Typical thug. Oh and of course have to play the race card. Yawn...getting old.

I usually dont even speak to FSU fans and/or graduates, but when I do, its usually to ask them for LARGE FRIES... This was just a complete moronic move on James Wilder's part. If the police find someone with an outstanding warrant, whether its for 1st degree murder or for unpaid parking tickets, they MUST take you into custody unless the warrant is from another state and that state declines extradition. His daddy needs to smack some sense into him. So instead of his girlfriend facing a misdemeanor and probably being released the next morning, he is now facing felony battery on a LEO and resisting arrest...thy just arent too bright in Tallahassee now are they?
