Word came early on Wednesday that Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested on Tuesday night and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but there weren’t many details about what happend beyond Wilson being arrested at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

Amanda Guerra of KRLD reports that Wilson was trying to park his truck outside the stadium and asked a group of tailgaters — there was a soccer match and a fireworks show at the stadium — to consolidate their party so he could use one of the spaces they were occupying. An argument developed from there and Wilson reportedly hit a woman while trying to back his truck into a space.

Guerra also reports that Wilson pulled a gun at some point. The linebacker was released from jail on a $20,000 bond.

In a statement to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple said that the team is “gathering information” about Wilson’s arrest and had no further comment.

  1. Why don’t they just replace that Cowboy Lone Star emblem on the helmets with jail bars.

  2. If you look at the stats on NFLArrest dot com, Dallas is towards the bottom since 2000 (MIN, CIN, and DEN are at the top), and middle of the pack over the last 5 years (NYJ, SF, ND).

    It hardly seems to the pervasive problem for the Cowboys that some want to make it into, but that doesn’t really fit into the narrative being pushed by everyone who loves to hate the Cowboys no matter what the facts may say, so carry on, I guess.

  3. Unreal, the Cowboys are having a horrible off season. I have lost track of all the stupid things done by idiots employed by this team in the last few months.

    Firstly, that meter is incomplete as far as impropriety goes – for example the past 12 month period doesn’t include things like the recent Zeke incident nor even the last Greg Hardy cocaine arrest. And not all impropriety involves arrests. Secondly, Cowboys org only have themselves to blame for claiming to be “America’s Team” – when you put yourself on a pedestal you’d best make sure you’re cleaner/better than the rest.

  5. When Benjamin Franklin uttered his famous “death and taxes” line, he left out “and biased losers looking at every piece of Cowboys news in the worst possible light”. I totally understand people disliking Dallas, but like it or not, if you hate Dallas you probably turn into a complete idiot when they come up in discussions. If you made some kind of “stay classy Dallas” comment on here already or were planning on making one, sorry, you’re one of those morons. And if you thumbs this comment down…well, yeah, that makes you one too.

  6. ^^Hardy wasnt a Dallas Cowboy when the cocaine arrest occured.

    Why should that count against Dallas, if he gets arrested *after* he was released cut?

    What Zeke incident are you referring to? Zeke hasnt been arrested for anything (though he has exhibited questionable judgement), so why would a “non arrest” be counted?

    It’s kind of hard to find the sunshine when the majority of Cowboys stories are about drunks, dopers, and women beaters.

  8. Mr. Jones only allows young men with high character to wear a star on their helmet. This type of behaivor is not accepted when you represent America’s Team, the most valuable and popular sports franchise on the planet. I suspect this deviant will be released by tomorrow and sent to Baltimore.

  9. It sounds like he wouldn’t have been a big deal….until he pulled out the gun. Brilliant.

  10. Lol there is just something about that boys d. Is there one member of that unit that doesn’t have a rap sheet or substance abuse offense? Oh yeah Sean Leewho is too busy spending his offseasons in a hyperbaric chamber fearing if he leaves he’ll trip over his own feet and rupture an all. Horrible talent on the field and terrible people off the field on that d.

  11. Soccer moms or not, they shouldn’t be in his personal parking spot. There is no doubt that they knew who he was and that they were in his spot. And people brandishing guns over minor disputes happens hundreds of times everyday in Texas. So this is really a none story.
