First, quarterback Jameis Winston was pinched for shoplifting shellfish from a Tallahassee Publix. Now, his teammate, Jesus Wilson, is in trouble for a more serious version of shoplifting: grand theft auto.

From TomahawkNation.com:

Florida State sophomore receiver Jesus Wilson was arrested Wednesday on a charge of Grand Theft Auto in the third degree. This, according to the Leon County Sheriff's booking report. No information is provided in the booking report other than the charge, which is a felony.

Under Florida State University policy, any athlete charged with a felony is immediately suspended until the matter has reached a resolution.

This is Wilson's first brush with the law during his time at Florida State of which Tomahawk Nation is aware. Under Florida law, the charge of grand theft auto in the third degree carries a maximum sentence of five yeas in prison, five years probation and up to a $5,000 fine, upon conviction.

They say "go big or go home," but it looks like Jesus went big, but he's still going to have to go home.

Still, let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone.
