Former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Damien Wilson was arrested in Frisco last week on an assault charge after his ex-girlfriend said he threatened to kill her with a tire iron and destroyed her laptop after a breakup.

Wilson, who was signed last month by the Carolina Panthers, faces a charge of assault with bodily injury of a family member, Frisco police Sgt. Stephen Byrom said in an email. Byrom said he had no information about which jail Wilson was booked in, or whether he had bonded out.

Wilson’s attorney, Toby Shook, disputed the assault allegations.

“Damien Wilson did not commit any type of assault,” Shook said. “We look forward to all the facts coming out so his name can be cleared.”
