It is the second time in the past five days the Bengals released a player who had been arrested.
The second-year running back from West Virginia was arrested last June 17 in Huntington, W.Va., and charged with disorderly conduct for failing to disperse after a weekend wedding party. The Bengals waived him Monday.
Wilson was the 10th Bengals player arrested in a 14-month span.
The Bengals recently released wide receiver Chris Henry, another former West Virginia star, after he was arrested last week on an assault charge, his fifth arrest while he was with the team.
