Cowboys LB Arrested for Assault with Deadly Weapon (Update: Allegedly Brandished Rifle)

 

12:36 PM PTTMZ Sports has obtained the police report which shows Wilson allegedly intentionally backed his truck into a female while parking and then brandished a rifle at another man.

The situation seems to have been set off due to a parking dispute.

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon at a 4th of July fireworks event in Dallas … cops say.

Officials say the 24-year-old was taken into custody at Toyota Stadium, where the MLS soccer team FC Dallas had played a game earlier in the day. It was followed by a fireworks show.

Wilson has been charged with 2 counts of felony aggravated assault. If convicted, he faces 20 years in prison on each count — 40 years total.

The details of the alleged assault are still unclear. We’re working on it. The arrest was first reported by FOX 4.

He’s since been released from custody after posting $20,000 bond.

Wilson was a 4th round pick out of Minnesota in the 2015 Draft. He played in all 16 regular season games for the Cowboys during both years he’s been in the league.

Vin Scully: I’ll Never Watch NFL Again Due to Anthem Protests

Vin Scully says he’ll NEVER watch a single down of NFL football again … and it’s all thanks to the players protesting during the national anthem.

The legendary Dodgers announcer was speaking at an event in Pasadena on Saturday when he was asked about the controversy surrounding commissioner Roger Goodell, team owners and players … and Scully didn’t hold back.

“I have only one personal thought, really. … and I am so disappointed. I used to love, during the fall and winter, to watch the NFL on Sunday.”

Scully — who spent one year in the Navy — adds … “but I have overwhelming respect and admiration for anyone who puts on a uniform and goes to war. So the only thing I can do in my little way is not to preach. I will never watch another NFL game.”

NFL’s Malcolm Jenkins: Kaepernick Invited to Owners’ Meeting, Didn’t Show (UPDATE)

 

 

1:08 PM PT — Kaepernick’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, says his client was NOT officially invited to the meeting by team or league officials, but is “open to future participation on these important discussions.”

Colin Kaepernick was invited to NFL headquarters to talk about social issues with team owners … but decided not to show up to the meeting, Malcolm Jenkins told the media on Tuesday.

Several players sat down with owners in Manhattan today to discuss ways to promote positive change … and both sides agreed it was a step in the right direction, but there’s more work to do.

“Those conversations will continue. That dialogue will continue,” Jenkins said.

“As players, we’ll continue to do the work in our communities. We feel like that’s the most American thing to do is to use your platform to influence with the stage that we have.”

As for the national anthem demonstrations … Jenkins says it wasn’t the focus of the meeting.

LeBron James Just Torched Trump Over His Attacks On Black NFL Players

 

Basketball megastar LeBron James addressed the President’s inflammatory attacks on black athletes who kneel during the national anthem during the NBA’s Media Day, praising former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for taking a stand against racism and police brutality.

“I salute Colin Kaepernick for being as powerful as he was, and being the one that had to fall on the sword unfortunately, and I hate that … I wish I owned an NFL team right now, I’d sign him today.”

He didn’t shy away from addressing the President again, just two days after calling him a “bum” in a viral Twitter post:

“It wasn’t a name call … it was like ‘You bum!’ Me and my friends call each other that all the time. I’m not his friend though.

The thing that frustrated me and pissed me off is that he used the sports platform to divide us. Sport and sports is so amazing, what sports can do for everyone, no matter the shape, or size, or race, or ethnicity, or religion — or whatever. People find teams, people find payers, people find colors because of sport and they just gravitate toward that and it makes people so happy. And it brings people together like none other.

But James saved his most powerful condemnation for last, calling out the President for failing to rise to the responsibilities of the office and for failing to adequately govern this nation.

“He doesn’t understand the power that he has for being the leader of this beautiful country. He doesn’t understand how many kids, no matter the race, look up to the President of the United States for guidance, for leadership, for words of encouragement.

The people run this country, not one individual — and damn sure not him.”

We couldn’t agree more.
