Florida State lifts suspension of WR Jesus Wilson
Florida State wide receiver Jesus Wilson, who was arrested in July on a charge of grand theft auto for stealing a motorized scooter, has had his indefinite suspension from the team lifted, according to ESPN.
Wilson traveled and dressed with the team for the Seminoles' season-opening win over Oklahoma State in Arlington, but he wasn't allowed to play.
The sophomore admitted to police that he took the scooter when he saw the keys in the ignition and crashed it.
The receiver's attorney told ESPN that Wilson's initial felony charge was reduced to misdemeanor petty theft and misdemeanor criminal mischief.
He also paid $1,074 in restitution to the scooter owner and was sentenced to spend 30 days on a jail work camp and two years' probation, which can be reduced to one year following the completion of the work camp.
Wilson could start the Seminoles' next game Saturday versus Citadel. He returned eight punts for 89 yards and caught three passes for 23 yards last season.
