Wilder in jail for violating probation

The Tallahassee Democrat is reporting that former Plant football star James Wilder, Jr., now a running back at Florida State, is back in jail.
According to the Democrat, Wilder turned himself in today to the Leon County Jail for a violation of probation. In April, Wilder was sentenced to six months’ probation after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor charge of resisting a police officer without violence. As part of his plea deal, Wilder had to serve nine days at a Leon County work camp.
After turning up at one of those mandated work days, Wilder tested positive for alcohol on a breathalyzer test, according to his attorney Tim Jansen. Since Wilder is under the legal drinking in Florida of 21, that constituted a violation of his probation. His attorney, Tim Jansen, said Wilder turned himself in this afternoon. He is being held without bond.
For now, the FSU coaching staff has not taken any action against Wilder for this latest incident.
