He was on a motorcycle. The others in the group stopped for the police. Wilder fled and then wrecked his motorcycle

Huh kid must have thought he can simply vanish into an alley or something. Anyways not sopping for a police officer is super dumb esp when he was part of a biker pack and rest of them were heeding the law.

This isn't the first time he has had traffic issues. Found guilty of reckless driving last year.

Sounds like he made a mistake, should have just stopped and taken the reckless driving ticket. No doubt he was worried about the consequences but it sounds like he made it worse.

I actually feel bad for Bobby in this situation. If the felony doesn't get dropped he will have to release his own son from the team and from his scholarship based on what he has done with other players. That can't be a comfortable discussion with his wife.

One more thing. Do we have the ability to restrict our student athletes from driving motorcycles, skydiving, etc as terms of their scholarships? I know they do in pro contracts.

I can't imagine Bobby is happy Derek rides a motorcycle but as his dad he would know right?

How do you think Derek paid for the motorcycle?! Kid doesn't have a job. His dad paid for it.

Doubtful. My friend's brother had a teammate who messed up his knee in the off season playing soccer or something and the school didn't pay for his surgery or rehab. I think the guy transferred down, because the school was going to pull his scholarship at the end of the year (because of the injury).

We should ban kids from opening doors too. Have a dedicated English major follow then around.

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

Didn't the article say he didn't have a registration? Perhaps the motorcycle is a friends and his dad had no idea he was riding it. I'm just guessing.

The motorcycle was Derek's.
