Grand Theft Auto: Tallahassee? FSU receiver charged for moped theft

Florida State Spring Game

Time to hit the reset button on the arrest counter. Florida State wide receiver Jesus Wilson was reportedly charged with a third degree grand theft auto Wednesday. The arrest came over what is being reported to be a long-running dispute over the ownership of a moped. Wilson was taken into custody but has already been released.

According to a report by The Florida Times-Union, Wilson is accused of stealing a motor scooter that was parked on campus on June 11. The keys were in the ignition, making a getaway rather easy. The owner of the moped, Sebastian Bellini, informed police he thought he dropped the keys. Soon after the alleged theft, Wilson crashed the vehicle with damages costing $882.13. When police investigated the accident Wilson told police he had borrowed the scooter from a friend. When asked to identify the friend who had allegedly lent him the vehicle, Wilson failed to show up to a photo lineup. Wilson later sent the police a statement claiming to have taken the bike, which led to an arrest just days later.

Tomahawk Nation notes the charge for grand theft auto is a felony, citing a booking report from the Leon County Sheriff’s office. If charged to the full extent of the law, Wilson could face a sentence of five years in prison, five years of probation and a fine up to to $5,000. Because the charge is considered a felony, Wilson will be suspended from football activity until the legal process runs its course. Florida State is expected to release a statement on the situation soon.

Wilson was responsible for three receptions and 23 yards in 2013 as well as some time on special teams. The Sophomore was expected to be a possible starter for the Seminoles in 2014.

    Lie to police after he was caught in the lie. Throw his butt in jail. Theft is theft. Whether it had the keys in the ignition or not. Taking something that you didn’t work for show a complete lack of character .

    At least it was something cool, like a scooter, and not something lame, like crab legs.

    Wow it will take Tallahassee police three years to investigate and if he becomes a Heisman trophy candidate they will blame it on the victim. Don’t you just love the Florida state criminal football team and coaches..teaching the players to just go out and take what they want and know they can blame it on their environment when they were growing up..just kids having fun..stealing is no big deal

    “If charged to the full extent of the law…”

    Please don’t tell me you believe this will really happen…

    To be charged to the full extent of the law in Tallahassee, you have to have raped some…

    err, never mind.

    He didn’t win a Heisman. He’s probably gone.

  7. mcjon22 says: Jul 10, 2014 11:47 AM

    Jimbo kicked a player (can’t remember his name) off the team a few years back for the same thing.

    I’d be surprised if he suits up for FSU again.

    But at least he admitted that he stole the moped in his letter to this police, I’ll give him a little credit for that.

    Still, complete moron. Throwing potentially a free ride scholarship at a major university out the window, let alone his football career.

    If he can be productive, FSU will find a way to bury this and keep him active.

    FSU will buy the student a new scooter and give him free tuition in turn for not cooperating with the police and the charges will be dismissed. And like someone else above said, FSU and Wilson will then blame the owner of the scooter and paint himself as the victim and expect sympathy because of all the bad publicity.

    “He’s a good kid and only wanted to borrow the scooter so he could ride it to church…”

    My true colors don’t need to “come out”… I don’t hide behind acronyms. Why don’t you just type out what TNB really means instead using the acronym…. oh yeah… because you know your post would get deleted immediately.

    Just so everyone else is aware including Kevin and JT, TNB in an acronym for “Typical N****r Behavior” and is obviously inappropriate on this or any website.

    You may be able to fool these people… you ain’t fooling me.

    OMG! All I can say is……OMG! How? Why? Wtf? Why do they throw away these opportunities like this? Like Shabazz Napier said: sometimes we go to bed without a moped.

  26. ducksk says: Jul 10, 2014 6:34 PM

    Ever hear of trying to earn enough $ the old fashion way by working, rather than stealing from others who have. I hate thieves.

  27. woebegong says: Jul 10, 2014 8:52 PM

    He was just on his way to pick up his QB, so they could get some seafood. He was going to return the scooter, because he really didn’t mean to take it.
    I mean if you are going to steal transportation, at least hotwire a decent car and swipe it. How lame can it be to get caught ripping off a scooter, for crying out loud.
    That will be 10 sit ups as punishment as ordered by the coach.

    Some schools will allow anything. FSU is one.

  30. 8to80texansblog says: Jul 11, 2014 10:18 AM

    The difference here between Winston and Wilson is the level of crime committed. Yes they both stole things but Wilson’s crime is a felony while Winston’s was a misdemeanor.

    At first it might seem hypocritical for Fisher to drop Wilson for essentially doing the same thing that he slapped his star on the wrist for but I believe that the level of infraction has to be taken into account here.

    It will be interesting to see how Fisher handles this. Because it’s a felony, he may not have a choice.

    LOL… No the real glaring stupidity here is that he stole something he couldn’t even drive/ride, hence the almost $900 in damages to the moped and the avenue for how the cops caught him. Now what would be an interesting detail here is how the police got involved. I m going to assume a bystander called them upon witnessing the accident which probably means he hit another vehicle or there was some other property damage involved…

    Uumm wrong my friend. Remember Fisher didn’t hand out any punishment to Winston. That fell in the hands of the baseball coach because it was baseball season. All Jimbo did was cosign on the final decision the baseball coach made…

  33. woebegong says: Jul 12, 2014 3:26 PM

    And to think he got into college. I wander if he was capable of signing the paperwork for his release or did the coach have to come down to the police station and do it for him?
    For his punishment, he will be forced to study for one class.

    True….
