Coach Busted for Possession Play

Drugs and gun found on Broward football assistant

The Broward School District may have to bench Dadrion Wilson for good after the assistant football coach was busted with pocketfuls of drugs and a gun during an early morning traffic stop in North Miami Beach.

Wilson, 30, a coach at Deerfield Beach High, reportedly dropped a baggie of cocaine as he stepped out of the passenger seat after he and one of his student/athletes were pulled over around 1:40 a.m. on June 8.

Police searched the car and found a loaded handgun in the passenger door. Then, as Wilson was being taken out of the squad car at the police station, cops found a bag of weed where he had been sitting in the back seat.

Wilson was hit with drug and gun possession charges and the driver, 18-year-old Donte Dotson, was charged with driving without a license.  

"The district is investigating the entirety of the incident," schools spokesman Andrew Feirstein told the Sun-Sentinel.

"When I heard that, I was kind of shocked," Dillard football coach Manny Martin, who coached at Deerfield Beach with Wilson last season, told the Sun-Sentinel. "I wasn't there so we'll have to wait to see what happens."
