FSU running back arrested for assaulting a law enforcement officer.

FSU running back James Wilder has been arrested on two felony accounts of "battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest with violence." Wilder was trying to prevent the arrest of his girlfriend "on a warrant for failure to appear stemming from a prior charge of criminal mischief."

Here's a bit of the police report, provided by Tomahawk Nation:

"On February 22, 2012, a Leon County Deputy responded to 415 Chapel Drive #419 in reference to arresting Bianca N. Camarda, 20, on an outstanding capias for failure to appear in court on a Criminal Mischief charge. The uniformed Deputy made contact with James C. Wilder, 19. Wilder allowed deputies into the apartment in order to search for Camarda. Camarda was located hiding in a bathroom and taken into custody without incident. After placing Camarda in handcuffs, Deputy Donnie Bramblett began escorting her to his marked patrol car.
 Wilder then began telling the deputy that Camarda was not going to go to jail. Wilder stepped in between Deputy Bramblett and Camarda and then pushed him. The deputy was able to regain control of the situation by unholstering his taser and advising Wilder that he would be tased if he continued to interfere. Wilder then began yelling obscenities while continuing to say that Camarda was not going to jail. As soon as Camarda was placed in the patrol car, Wilder was placed under arrest without further incident. Wilder and Camarda were taken to the Leon County Jail."

Wilder has already been suspended by FSU as a result of the arrest.
