Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested on July 4 after an incident in the parking lot of a fireworks show that left him under arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Wilson was accused of hitting a woman while trying to back his truck into a parking spot after an argument with people who were using the space for a tailgate party. Wilson also was accused of taking out a gun during the argument and was reported to have told police that “road rage” led to his behavior.

Wilson will not face any charges for the incident, however. L.P. Phillips of CBS Dallas-Fort Worth reports that a grand jury failed to indict Wilson on any assault charges.

Wilson has played in all five games for the Cowboys this year, starting twice and making 11 tackles.

  1. It is amazing what fans will allow these players get away with. He admitted to backing into a woman and brandishing a rifle. He said “road rage” led to his behavior. I would be sitting in jail.

  2. His “backing into her” was the lady standing and blocking a parking space as he slowly backed up. his bumper pushed her. oh the humanity. And when they said he pulled a gun on them he was moving it from his front to back seat since he was leaving his truck for the concert. He never pointed it at them, threatened them with it, or anything. He stored it in his back seat and they saw it.

    It’s a bunch of lies told by some gold-digging trash. I’m sure he will be suspended a game for it though.

    I’m sure that’s exactly the way it went down. I always carry my AR in the front seat when i leave my apartment to go to a concert. She may be gold-digging, but I am also certain there is more to simply moving his assault rifle from his front to back seat. That isn’t even logical.
