James Wilder Jr. has another minor legal setback

Florida State running back James Wilder Jr can’t seem to get out of his own way.

Per the Leon County Jail database, Wilder was arrested Sunday night and charged with failure to appear in court for one count of a non-moving traffic violation (driving with a suspended license).

Wilder was booked and released Sunday and given another court date.

It’s been a tough year for Wilder, beginning with an incident last February where Wilder was initially charged with battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence. Those charges were eventually reduced to misdemeanors as it appeared the incident was more of a misunderstanding. However, Wilder was ordered to six months probation and nine days at a work camp.

Wilder “violated his probation” in June when he blew a .01 into a routine breathalyzer test administered by the camp.

Florida State hasn’t commented on Wilder’s latest mishap, or what punishment, if any, Wilder will face for this latest minor mishap.

    A .01 seems pretty low. Is that not within the margin of error for the breathalyzer? I think any decent lawyer could get by that.

    It’s FSU. He’ll get off without any punishment. That’s what they do there.

    The kid blew .01? That is so tiny, maybe it was because he used Listerine that morning.

    He was on probation after he was convicted, parts of the probation is or was no acts of violence and no alcohol. That is standard. If he is still on probation he could have a problem.
