TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) Authorities say Florida State tailback James Wilder Jr. was arrested after a confrontation with deputies.
Florida's Leon County Sheriff's Office reports the 19-year-old was at a Tallahassee apartment Tuesday when deputies went to arrest a 20-year-old woman for missing a court appearance. As a deputy escorted the woman to a patrol car, a sheriff's report says, Wilder stepped between the deputy and the woman and pushed the deputy.
Wilder was arrested and charged with obstructing a law enforcement officer without violence and battery on the officer. Jail records show he was released on $2,000 bail.
Wilder's first season with the Seminoles was in 2011. He is the son of James Wilder, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' all-time career rushing leader.
Florida State's sports information department didn't immediately comment on the development.
