Ridge Wilson LB Kentucky
Linebacker Ridge Wilson enjoyed a pretty successful 2011 season with Kentucky last season, ranking 6th on the team in tackles with 47 and adding 2 sacks and a fumble recovery. Now after his arrest he'll have to continue his college career elsewhere -- if he's not locked up.
Wilson was stopped while he sat in his car leaning over with no lights on, with the police stopping to see what he was up to since it was an area known for drug trafficking and use. Wilson was allegedly extremely nervous, and kept mentioning that he played football the University of Kentucky. Wilson, very stupidly, allowed police to search his vehicle. It was then they found a bag of Xanax pills and nearly $2,000 in the jeans he was wearing.
Wilson was charged with felony trafficking in a controlled substance, and was dismissed from the football team.
