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.

Article says he continued a "short distance" then crashed. Maybe he's just not good at riding a motorcycle.

Why would we hire homeless people to keep our players off the streets?

"Your Honor, I plead my client is innocent of this charge. You see, he has a motorcycle with limited experience and lost control. He also forgot where the brakes were. I understand that as soon as you get your first gear shifting bicycle you know where the brakes are, but my client has never ridden a bicycle. Furthermore, he never saw the cop since he was so focused on figuring out how to not crash (which he did anyway) that he wasn't paying attention to his surroundings and never realized he was being pursued. His friend was trying to teach him."

Seems easy enough.

Judge said: this is your client's second time here. Last time I reduced the charge from misdemeanor to traffic infraction. He got off easy doing 84mph the first time. 07-coffee3

How come ODU Athletics only makes headlines when something bad or funny happens (JJ Hands in Pants or Brandon passing to the Bench)?

Because it's more fun to read. It's unfortunate, but bad press usually travels farther than good press
