Huntington, WV television station WSAZ has learned that former WVU and current Cincinnati Bengals running back Quincy Wilson was arrested early Sunday morning by Huntington police. The arrest over the weekend is creating big controversy in Huntington. Wilson was part of a wedding party celebrating at the Envy nightclub, and he was arrested for disorderly conduct after leaving the club. Wilson is friends with the couple that got married on Saturday.
Carlos Barron was the groom and Tara Hensley was the bride. They also were arrested along with three other members of the wedding party. Police say they refused to leave the area of the nightclub after officers ordered the crowd to disperse. Family members say those arrested did nothing wrong — that the arrests were racially motivated. All members of the wedding party were black and still in their tuxedos when taken to jail — the bride is white. The police report says it was important to get the crowd to leave that area of 4th Avenue because of a shots fired report nearby and a stabbing that happened a week earlier.
Police have not commented on the racial allegations. Continue to visit NFL GRIDIRON GAB for future developments on this story.
