The municipal court clerk in Huntington says there will be no trial for an NFL player accused of disorderly conduct.
Wilson was part of a wedding party that went to a bar in Huntington in June to celebrate.
When the club closed and a crowd gathered outside, police say they asked Wilson and others to leave the area and those that refused were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.
Wilson was scheduled to stand trial August 14th, but his attorney and the assistant city attorney for Huntington have reached an agreement that will allow the charges to be dismissed after a 6-month probationary period. The agreement is called a pre-trial diversion, and it will allow Wilson to have a clear criminal record as long as he avoids any legal problems during that 6-month period.
Wilson is a running back for the Cincinnati Bengals.
