Former FSU and Leon high school quarterback Wyatt Sexton has another run-in with the law. This one is just as bizarre as the one from six years ago in Leon County.

Tallahassee Police Arrested the 26-year-old Friday, charging him in a hit and run accident. This morning the details of the accident were released.

According to the police report, former Florida State quarterback Wyatt Sexton rear- ended a vehicle, and took off. He was arrested Friday and released the same day.

As the victim, Colin Creasy, went to write Sexton's license plate number down, the former Leon quarterback drove off but not before the victim was able to hop in the bed of Sexton's truck. The police report says the victim claims Sexton was driving recklessly in an attempt to throw him out of the car.

Creasy said when the car stopped Sexton began yelling about his mental health and how he going to get locked away for 45 years. Authorities say Sexton and the victim ended up at 210 Satsuma Street where the victim called the cops.

The Police Report shows Sexton saying that it was a big misunderstanding and he just went home for a few beers.

For those who know Sexton, and played football with him, they say no matter what his troubles, they will stand behind their friend and help out if they can.

"I think any guy that's played with Wyatt, any person associated with Florida State University or Florida State Athletics is always going to be there for anybody who is a part of our family, " said David Castillo, a former teammate of Sexton.

The former FSU quarterback was arrested back in 2005 after a run-in with police who say they found him lying in the street and proclaiming himself as God, an incident later linked to Lyme Disease.

[UPDATE] 3-15 8:15am --

TPD releases probable cause:

On 3/11/2011 at 9:45 PM I was dispatched to the area of W Gaines St and Railroad Ave in reference to a hit and run that just occurred. The complainant, Laurie Creasy, was advising that the crash involved a blue Honda and green pick-up truck and that her boyfriend, victim Colin Creasy, jumped into the back of the suspect vehicle, which was the green pick-up.

Officer McInnis 775 arrived first and made contact with the complainant. The complainant advised that the green pick-up was an older model Chevrolet pick-up and that the suspect was a white male wearing a brown shirt and blue shorts. Shortly after I arrived, dispatch advised that the victim was at 210 Satsuma Street and that the driver of the suspect vehicle was Wyatt Sexton, the arrestee. I proceeded to go that address and make contact with the victim.

I arrived at 210 Satsuma St and observed the victim and the suspect vehicle, Fl tag 096YBM. The vehicle is registered to the arrestee. I spoke with the victim who provided the following account: He was stopped at the traffic light at Railroad Ave and W Gaines St. He was in the northbound left turn lane waiting to turn left onto W Gaines St. Suddenly he was rear-ended by the suspect vehicle. He and the arrestee got out of their vehicles and assessed the damages. The arrestee insisted that there was no damage and that calling the police was not necessary, and that they could drive out of the road and down to the Warehouse to exchange information. After he told the arrestee that he wanted to call the police, the arrestee ran back to his truck and attempted to drive off. The victim ran after the arrestee and then went to the back of the truck to get the tag number. The arrestee continued to drive off so the victim jumped into the back of the truck.

The arrestee saw the victim in the back of the truck and began to drive recklessly in an attempt to throw the victim out of the truck. The victim continued to yell for help and kept waving at passing cars. When they arrived at S Monroe St and W Gaines St, the arrestee yelled at his passenger to get out. The arrestee continued to drive until he arrived at his house, 306 E Call St. The arrestee got out of his truck and began yelling at the victim about his mental health and about how he was going to get locked away for 45 years. The arrestee then handed the victim his driver's license. The victim then asked if they were at the arrestee's address but he did not respond. The victim was frightened so he began to walk to a house with a light on. The arrestee chased after him and tackled him. He did say that the arrestee was trying to get his license back. The arrestee pushed the victim down and he curled into a ball. Once the arrestee got his license back he got back into his truck and tried to run away. The victim got back into the back of the truck. The arrestee drove a short distance around the corner, 210 Satsuma St, and got out of his vehicle. The victim asked the arrestee if this was his address. The arrestee responded with a 'Nope' and ran off. This is when he ran into 210 Satsuma St and called the police.

While I was talking the victim and began gathering information about the arrestee, the arrestee returned to 210 Satsuma St. He started to say that it was a big misunderstanding and that he just went home to grab a couple beers. He said that he just wanted to give me his information and settle the whole thing. I asked him to tell me what happened. He gave me a very similar account to the victim's. He said that he did 'bump' into the victim's car. He got out of his truck and tried to avoid calling the police and just exchange information. He said that he wanted to get out of the road and that is why he offered to go to the Warehouse. The Warehouse is a small pool hall that is just down the road o W Gaines St. He said the victim didn't want to move the vehicles and wanted to call the police. He said that he left because he didn't think there was any damage and he didn't want to wait forever for the police while being parked in the middle of the road.

He said that when he drove off he saw the victim jump in the vehicle but he did not drive recklessly. He told me that he drove very carefully to his house and that when he arrived to his house he handed the victim his driver's license. The victim then took off with his license and he thought he was trying to steal it. He ran after the victim and tackled him to get his license back. Once he got his license he took off to his house because he was afraid the victim would hurt him.

The arrestee knew he was involved in a traffic accident where he was the driver of a vehicle involved. He is required to stay on scene and provide his personal identification and insurance information to the driver of the other vehicle. He willfully left the scene without providing that information and therefore fulfilling the requirements of F.S. 316.061. Therefore he is charged with leaving the scene of a crash involving property damage to an attended vehicle. He was transported to the Leon County Jail.

    I wouldn't have believed Lyme Disease could do this to a young man until it happened to my own son last year. Our family's story is very similar to The Sextons'. Psychiatric Lyme Disease is an infection of the central nervous system. This is such a tragedy. I know the grief this family carries. My prayers are with them everyday.

    @Annie- from his mouth he admitted to a group of us that he NEVER had lyme disease. Why dont you ask your friend about his trip to california? i have a feeling you dont know how that well. @anon- youre 100% correct

    @Susan: So you're attempting to blame the victim? That's a pretty bold stance. If this was any non-crazy person they would have given up when they realized that the victim was not going to allow themselves to be victimized without the involvement of the police. But we're not dealing with a non-crazy person: we're dealing with Wyatt Sexton, the self-proclaimed "Son of God." So instead of simply giving into the situation and waiting at the scene of the crime, understanding that the victim wasn't going to allow Wyatt dictate the series of events, Wyatt decided to flee with the victim in tow on a wild, reckless jaunt around Tallahassee. Wyatt needs to get help, and it seems that his family and this town is unwilling to get that help for him. Perhaps this will finally set in motion the course of events that will lead to real help... and prevent him from victimizing other innocent people. That could be you, Susan, or someone you care about. Think about that next time before you speak.

      THAT'S REALLY SENSITIVE OF YOU TOWARDS THE VICTIM. BUT, YOU KNOW WHAT --KNOW ONE GOT HURT.RIGHT? GOD IS PROTECTING WYATT AND OTHERS --IF THERE IS A SITUATION THAT HE MAY COME UPON AND IT IS ONE THAT CAN BE HELPED--SO BE IT. I AM SO GLAD AND THANKFUL KNOW ONE WAS HURT. THE ONLY HURT IS THE SEXTON FAMILY --BUT SUCH CRUEL STATEMENTS OF THOSE THAT DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT THAT FAMILY HAS ENDURED. GIVE IT SOME REST..

    I've known Wyatt since high school. He turns 27 years old this summer. He's not a college student. He needs help.

    The "victim" was behaving "a little careless" as well. Did they ask HIM to take a breathalyzer?

    My favorite part of this report is that the victim's last name is the same as his girlfriend's. Coincidence, or cousins? Ah, Tallahassee!

    wyatt sexton does not have lyme disease. that was a nice thing bobby did for his daddy in the press. anyone in tallahassee who has met him knows he is completely out of control.

    based on the fact that he "just wanted to go home to grab a couple of beers", I would wager that his post-accident behavior was less about alleged Lyme disease/mental illness and more about avoiding a potential DUI.
