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.
