Former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver and tight end Ernest Wilford has pleaded no contest to a charge of resisting arrest stemming from a January incident, according to the Florida Times Union.

A charge of trespassing was dropped in exchange for the plea.

Wilford, 32, allegedly touched two women at a Jacksonville Beach bar in an “inappropriate” manner on Friday, January 14. Asked to vacate the premises, Wilford refused and told police, “I’m not going anywhere.”

After allegedly pushing one officer in the chest, he was brought down with two shots from a stun gun.

Wilford finished last season with one catch for three yards.

  1. Ernest was brought down after his single catch when the defensive player touched him on the back in what Wilford described as “an inappropriate manner”. No penalty was assessed. His coach on the sideline was heard to grumble, “Useless **** gets three yards and goes down like he was shot.”.

  2. Wilford finished last season with one catch for three yards.

    Now it will be one arrest for 3 years in jail

  3. He finished last season with one catch for three yards. What happened to him? This guy was really good before. Apparently not the brightest bulb in the circuit though.

  4. In an effort to show the ladies he was Ernest, Wilford used his hands for emphasis.

  5. I wonder if he said what every other pro athlete has said before when busted” Do you know who I am??”, In this case it probably doesn’t apply seeing as he only had 1 catch last season.

  6. at least he did not try Fat Albert’s defense….”I don’t like (insert color description here), I only like (insert other color description), so I couldn’t have done it.”

  7. Ernest was brought down with two shots from a stun gun: one shot for each inappropriate groping.

    Ernest was later overheard mumbling to himself, “there’s gotta be a better way than this to inappropriately cop a feel.”

  8. Wilford’s emotions may have got the best of him in the heat of the confrontation, but afterwards he was subdued.
