Kentucky linebacker Ridge Wilson was arrested over the weekend in Louisville and charged with trafficking in a controlled substance. A charge that is considered a felony.
Wilson was parked in his car with the lights off when a policeman approached his vehicle to see what Wilson was doing. Inside the car he found a pair of jeans in the back seat with a bag of Xanax in the pocket. Police also found $1,947 in the pants Wilson was wearing.
Police also said that Wilson kept mentioning to them that he was a football player at Kentucky, and seemed nervous the entire time.
Wilson has been suspended by Kentucky following the arrest, though when asked about the suspension, spokesperson Tom Neely would only say that Wilson "broke team rules."
Wilson, who will be a senior in the 2012 season, had 47 tackles in 9 games for Kentucky last season, including 3 for a loss and 2 sacks.
