Damien Wilson on July 4 arrest: I had road rage

Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested in Frisco, Texas on July 4 and charged with two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after an altercation in a stadium parking lot.

As previously reported, Wilson has been accused of brandishing a gun after backing into a woman who was tailgating in a parking spot that Wilson wanted to use. On Tuesday, the Dallas Morning News obtained a probable cause affidavit providing more details about the arrest.

Per the affidavit, a man flagged down police to tell them a man had hit his sister-in-law, who he says was trying to hold a parking spot for relatives, with a car before taking out an AR-15 that was eventually returned to his vehicle. He identified Wilson, who initially denied the allegation before reversing course and blaming “road rage” for his decision to take out the weapon.

The Cowboys have not issued a comment on Wilson’s arrest beyond saying they are gathering information about what happened.

    If this guy plays a single down this year, the League’s credibility is ZERO !!

    Pull an Assault Rifle over a parking spot ?!?!

    I’m a Cowboy fan and generally a defender of Dr. Jones but there is no way he should allow this guy back into any facility with a Cowboys logo.

    Doesnt suprise me at the least. Have you ever been in the Wal Mart parking lot across the street from Jerruh’s house? Its apocalyptic. Creatures live there

    I’m all for citizens having the right to bear arms, but there’s a responsibility that comes with that. “Road rage” is not a valid reason to brandish a firearm.

  10. fishyinalittledishy says: Jul 11, 2017 3:17 PM

    Let’s pull the old gun out trick when you find somebody has the parking bay you want. Nice ! Sorry but I spot a very serious character flaw here.

    Well let’s be honest here, this did not happen in downtown Arlington, which we can agree is….rough, it happened in Frisco which is a pretty nice area.

    That being said, anyone who brandishes an AR-15 should be released fairly quickly.

  12. 52crabcakes says: Jul 11, 2017 3:29 PM

    sounds like stupidity to me!

  13. tylawspick6 says: Jul 11, 2017 3:41 PM

    Goodell will do nothing. He will be in camp, Jerrah will do nothing, and the inmates will continue to run the asylum.

  14. riffrafflaff says: Jul 11, 2017 3:43 PM

    Some day they will apprehend this Road Rage once and for all.

  15. jm91rs says: Jul 11, 2017 3:43 PM

    Driving around with a freaking AR-15 and pulling it out over a parking spot? That’s a cry for help. I hope that his only punishment is to turn over all of his guns. As a responsible gun owner, I feel OK saying that there’s no need for someone that can’t control themselves to have access to something like that.

  16. johnodocks says: Jul 11, 2017 3:43 PM

    When will TMZ buy and release the parking lot surveillance video?

  17. redclaw1314 says: Jul 11, 2017 3:44 PM

    Just another speed bump in the Dallas player development program. How ’bout those Cowboys?

    You haven’t been many places if you think downtown Arlington is “rough”!

    I’m sure the lady was being an A while holding a parking spot for her relatives who could not be bothered to show up early, but that is a bit much.

    What this fellow did was not road rage. It is a rage issue in general. I wonder if his trigger was a hillbilly thing or simply entitlement.

    I am not “All for citizens having the right to bear arms”.

    Far too many citizens are either too stupid, too messed up in the head, or are carrying around an inferiority complex.

    Now that we have several mass-shootings per week in the USA, you would think that people would wake up.

    Nope.

    Now the republicans that stroke the NRA want everyone to buy a silencer.

    ….and what is a “valid reason to brandish a firearm”?

    I can only think of two for civilians…

    To protect your home and family.
    To kill an animal for dinner.

    Why would anyone need a concealed carry permit or a silencer for either of those things?

    Sounds like you have been there, You are telling me Collins and Cooper south 30 and division to 360 are nice?

    Note i said rough, not the roughest. But I can tell you I wouldn’t volunteer to live in those areas.

  22. timmmah10 says: Jul 11, 2017 4:17 PM

    Weak excuse. Weaker human being. Needing a gun over a parking spot?

    PS Bonitalogical, conceal carry is to protect yourself and your family outside of your home. So your argument is mute, but nice try.
    Now, should conceal carry cover an AR15? Eh… I’ll listen to that argument.

  23. thejetssuck2001 says: Jul 11, 2017 4:20 PM

    hes trying to follow past leaders like greg hardy.

  24. granadafan says: Jul 11, 2017 4:23 PM

    Someone who doesn’t deserve to have a deadly weapon.

  25. raiddawgz says: Jul 11, 2017 4:34 PM

    This is very typical for a member of the Cowboyz organization. Not sure when the NFL will get a clue and force Jerry to drop these idiots. Cowboyz motto should be “by any means”. Its a shame they feel its no big deal to hang on to these tools especially when kids are looking up to them.

  26. bullcharger says: Jul 11, 2017 4:41 PM

    People really have to learn to let things go. Many people are jerks. Don’t let them ruin your life over a parking spot. Just park somewhere else.

  27. raiddawgz says: Jul 11, 2017 4:41 PM

    I dont think we will see an apology from this criminal or the Cowboyz any time soon either.

  28. bluestars920 says: Jul 11, 2017 4:45 PM

    I’m a Cowboy fan AND WONDERUNG WHEN ARE WE GONNA START CUTTING THIS DEAD WEIGH THIS IS TERRIBLE HOW BPUT BEING A DAMN ROLE MODEL …….TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE……..SMH

  29. r8rsfan says: Jul 11, 2017 4:51 PM

    It is pretty frustrating if you want to park and somebody’s sister is being a human traffic cone.

  30. uncommon1 says: Jul 11, 2017 5:25 PM

    He should have done what any reasonable adult would have done: pull up to the lady who is acting like a traffic cone and lay on your horn until she CHOOSES to move for you. Don’t hit her with your car and definitely don’t pull out your rifle.

    You didn’t need to tell us you were a Cowboys fan, We could tell by the spelling…..

  32. whenwilliteverend says: Jul 11, 2017 5:29 PM

    He probably thinks it’s OK since he had road rage. Yet another leader for the Cowboys.

    Exactly. And after you find a new parking spot, walk by their tailgate party and fart a bunch of times. That’s how you handle problems as an adult.

  34. dallashomer says: Jul 11, 2017 5:34 PM

    I don’t get it. Using a rifle to point out your parking space is legal here. It’s called Texas parking.

  35. bayousooner90 says: Jul 11, 2017 6:00 PM

    Pulled an AR-15 for a parking spot? Why hasn’t Jerry suspended this guy already?

    Greg Hardy 2.0

  36. richardshermanhaschickenlegs says: Jul 11, 2017 6:20 PM

    If all those steroids only get you .5 sacks in two years, why take the risk? LOL

    His spelling was no worse than your poor usage and misuse of punctuation.

  38. darkbaconlips says: Jul 11, 2017 8:20 PM

    Jerrah will cut a check and make it right.

  39. SparkyGump says: Jul 11, 2017 8:26 PM

    Wasn’t it George Carlin that called for the death penalty for parking violations?

  40. mrplow3 says: Jul 12, 2017 12:37 AM

    “Now that we have several mass-shootings per week in the USA”

    Ya see, this is why everyone hates you gun grabbing extremists.

    Checks news this week- no “several mass shootings”

    Checks news last weeks- no “several mass shootings”

    Checks news the week before- Whatdaya know, no “several mass shootings”!!!

  41. stucats says: Jul 12, 2017 8:07 AM

    I am a Cowboys fan and this is the same dummy that played paintball last year before training camp and he was not wearing eye goggles and was shot in the eye & missed some training camp.
    When he did play last season he showed flashes of being a good player but he is obviously 2 fries short of a happy meal.

  42. aggression44 says: Jul 12, 2017 8:36 AM

    At least he fits right in with the boys. No one can say their defense is more violent than the boys. I wonder if they have made a practice field at the county lock up yet?

  43. jammer88 says: Jul 12, 2017 8:39 AM

    Darn, just another example of da man trying to keep a brother down

  44. streetyson says: Jul 12, 2017 8:54 AM

    LOL, I thought it said “Roid Rage” and then read the article and realised I was right anyway!

  45. silvernblacksabbath says: Jul 13, 2017 12:02 PM

    Roid Road Rage!!!
