TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida State receiver Jesus Wilson faces a felony charge of third-degree grand theft motor.
A motor scooter was reported stolen on campus June 11 and Wilson was stopped riding it on June 17 by Tallahassee police. Wilson said a friend loaned him the vehicle. An investigation ensued, and Wilson turned himself in to Leon County sheriff's department Wednesday. Wilson posted a bond of $2,500 and was released from Leon County jail.
FSU spokesman Rob Wilson said school policy forbids a player from representing the team when charged with a felony. He said Wilson is not eligible to practice or travel but is not automatically kicked off the team.
Wilson, a sophomore, played in 12 games for the Seminoles last year and was expected to compete for a starting role in 2014.
According to FSU's website, Wilson is from Miami and attended Christopher Columbus High School.
