Isaiah Wilson has successfully flushed a promising NFL career down the drain. The former first-round pick, who played in just four snaps during his rookie season, is now unemployed after he was released by the Dolphins three days after they traded for him.
The offensive tackle had a number of reported issues during his one season with the Titans. He was arrested and charged with DUI days before the Titans season opener and twice placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. He was then suspended for violating club rules in December.
It turns out that wasn't all of Wilson's problems. He has a previously unreported arrest at gunpoint following a high speed car chase in Georgia two months before he was traded on March 8th.
From Broadway Sports:
According to the Barrow County Sheriff’s Department incident report, the pursuit of Wilson began at about 3:50 a.m. on Jan. 7, when Officer Stephen Kinney observed a dark-colored Dodge Charger with Tennessee license plates fly past him traveling eastward on University Parkway. Activating his radar, Kinney clocked the vehicle going 123 miles per hour, then activated his emergency lights and siren in an attempt to catch the vehicle and initiate a traffic stop.
Kinney began to catch up to the vehicle before he noticed it accelerating away, and he advised his dispatch office that speeds of the chase had reached 140 miles per hour, according to the report. A second officer joined in the pursuit at about that same time.
Per the report, Kinney pursued the Charger into neighboring Oconee County before he was advised – by radio – to terminate the pursuit because of the high rates of speed.
But just a few moments later, Kinney was told by dispatch that an undercover ICE Agent had seen the same Charger crash off the road – and that the ICE agent was currently holding the driver at gunpoint.
How did this go two plus months without being reported? Wilson has some serious problems. Hopefully he gets some help...
