Though details are unclear, Wilson was subsequently charged with assault on a female, though the initial news release from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office made available Monday does not elaborate on the incident.

Wilson was held on $10,000 secure bond and confined to Richmond County Jail.

A call to the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office was not immediately returned.

This report will be updated as details become available.
