Police arrested NFL lineman Isaiah Wilson following a high speed car chase in Georgia in January, reports revealed on Wendesday.
Officers found Mr Wilson driving at speeds exceeding 123 mph, sparking the chase reaching up to 140 mph.
Wilson's car crashed and he along with a female suspect were later arrested by an ICE officer, police reports revealed.
Wilson, 22, was charged with “felony fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer, speeding in a construction zone, reckless driving, reckless conduct, possession of less than 1 ounce of marijuana, and possession and use of drug-related objects,” namely after police imposed further charges after finding a metal grinder with marijuana in his vehicle.
The 350 lb linemen was supported by the Dolphins but reversed their decision after three days, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
The five-star recruit played 24 of 25 games with the Georgia Bulldogs and was ranked second in 2019, allowing the star player to enter the NFL draft just two years his collegiate eligibility period.

The Dolphins finished the season 10-6 despite the decision to reject Wilson. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported that Wilson was not committed to continuing his career and refused to attend two voluntary workouts or a team physical. Betting odds for the Dolphins will not be affected, according to analysts, and the team will have sufficient players in future draft picks.
