Duke lacrosse investigator arrested on Delaware charges
Linwood Wilson, former investigator to Durham District Attorney Mike Nifong in the Duke Lacrosse case, was arrested Thursday evening.
Durham County Sheriff's deputies made the arrest at the request of authorities in Delaware, where Wilson was wanted on cyberstalking and obscenity charges related to a domestic-violence incident, said Durham County Sheriff's Department Major Paul Martin.
The Delaware warrant was issued June 10, he said.
Durham deputies made the arrest at Wilson's home about 6 p.m., Martin said. Wilson was taken to the Durham County jail and released on an unsecured $1,000 bond.
Wilson is named in several pending lawsuits stemming from the 2006 Duke lacrosse case, in which three players were accused of rape. The charges were subsequently dropped and the players declared innocent by N.C. Attorney General Roy Cooper.
