SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Former Carolina Panthers vice president of player personnel Adrian Wilson was arrested June 1 on three domestic violence charges, according to the Scottsdale Police Department.

Wilson, 44, was charged with intentional assault causing physical injury, damaging property between $250 and $2,000, and disorderly conduct-disruptive behavior or fighting, according to police records. Wilson was arrested just after 6 a.m. at his home on the misdemeanor charges. He posted bail on June 1, according to police records.

Wilson’s next court date is July 16 for a virtual case management conference.

Wilson, who recently left the Panthers after 18 months on the job, spent 13 years as a safety in the NFL, playing for three different teams including 12 seasons with the Arizona Cardinals, who drafted him in the third round in 2001. They released him in early 2013 and he spent the 2013 season with the New England Patriots. Wilson then spent the 2014 training camp with the Chicago Bears before being cut before that season.

Wilson joined the Cardinal’s front office in 2015 as a regional scout. He was promoted to director of pro scouting in 2019 and vice president of pro scouting in 2021.

“Adrian Wilson will not continue in his position as vice president of player personnel for the Carolina Panthers,” a team spokesperson said. “Consistent with our organizational policy on employee matters, we will have no further comment.”

Wilson interviewed for the New York Giants’ general manager job in 2022, when he was also linked to the Jacksonville Jaguars’ general manager vacancy, but he didn’t receive an offer for either job.

Wilson was named the Cardinals’ co-interim general manager late in the 2022 season after Steve Keim took a health-related leave of absence that December. Wilson interviewed in early 2023 for the Cardinals’ general manager vacancy but did not get hired. He left the organization in February 2023 to be the Panthers’ vice president of player personnel.
