FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson has been arrested on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon after he was accused of backing his truck into a woman and threatening a man with a rifle during a dispute with some tailgaters.
Frisco police said Wilson was arrested Tuesday outside of Toyota Stadium during the city's Fourth of July celebration. Major League Soccer's FC Dallas played Tuesday night at the stadium in Frisco, a suburb north of Dallas that's also home to the Cowboys' practice facility.
Police said Wilson was released from jail after posting $20,000 bond. They said the case remains under investigation.
Wilson is entering his third season with the Cowboys.
Team spokesman Scott Agulnek said the Cowboys were gathering information and didn't have immediate comment.
Agents for Wilson didn't immediately return messages seeking comment.
Wilson is the second Dallas defender to be arrested this offseason. Cornerback Nolan Carroll, a free-agent pickup from Philadelphia, was charged with drunken driving in Dallas in May. The Cowboys also have two suspended starters in defensive ends David Irving and Randy Gregory. Carroll and Wilson could face suspensions even without convictions for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy (see full story).
