Grand Jury To Hear Charges Against Cowboys LB Damien Wilson

DALLAS (1080 KRLD) – A grand jury will apparently hear scaled-back charges against Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson.

Wilson was arrested July 4th on two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

According to police, Williams intentionally backed his truck into a woman during a dispute in a parking lot, then they say he got a out a rifle during the dispute.

But instead of directly-filing the two charges with prosecutors, police are asking a Grand Jury to hear the pickup truck matter as a felony and the gun charge as a misdemeanor.

It could take a couple months for that to happen. Both Frisco Police and the Collin County DA’s office are declining comment.

Wilson, 24, was a fourth-round pick by Dallas in 2015 and played in all 16 games for the Cowboys last season.
