According to court documents, on August 2, 2023, a Las Vegas Metro office approached Wilson and three others in a parking lot behind an apartment building. The officers noticed that the ignition of two motorcycles had been town out and at least one of the motorcycles was running without a key.

The officers also saw the grip of a pistol coming from the waistband of Wilson’s pants, court documents said. When the officer told Wilson not to reach for the gun, Wilson grabbed the grip and ran from the officer.
