St. Louis County police arrested James Wilder, Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back, and booked him on a misdemeanor drug offense after stopping his car on Interstate 270 early Saturday, authorities said. Wilder, 31, a former Missouri star who is Tampa Bay's career rushing leader, was later released, officer Linda Guccione said, but his 1989 Mercedes was confiscated pending laboratory tests on a substance taken from the vehicle. "Since it was not a felony, I'm sure the substance was marijuana," said Guccione, who added that two passengers in Wilder's car, neither of them identified, were also booked.

Allowing cameras into the congressional chambers has been one of the greatest benefits available to me through cable television. The next great step would be the suggestion of your editorial, "C-Span's Shackles" (Jan. 5). It would be wonderful to see the reactions. I agree: Free C-Span cameras! JAMES WILDER San Diego

James Wilder said that by the end of last season he'd pretty much reconciled himself to the fact that his career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was over. "I could see it coming," he said. "They were interested in starting a youth movement. They weren't interested in me." Still, it was tough. He had to admit that this week as he slipped into a Washington Redskins uniform for the first time.

A drug test Tampa Bay running back James Wilder volunteered to take after being arrested last weekend for possession of a substance believed to be marijuana came back "totally negative," the team said. Coach Ray Perkins said the test was administered solely to clarify Wilder's situation. "It had nothing to do with him testing positive before, because he has not," the coach said. Wilder was arrested in Clayton, Mo., early Saturday after a car he owned but was not driving was stopped for speeding.

Former Coach John McKay has been heavily fined by the National Football League for ordering Tampa Bay to allow the New York Jets to score at will so his star tailback could try for an NFL record. The fine, believed to be the largest ever against an NFL coach, was levied by Commissioner Pete Rozelle for McKay's actions in Tampa Bay's 41-21 victory Dec. 16--the last day of the 1984 season.

What's next, "Harding and Kerrigan Meet the Menendez Brothers"? By sharply criticizing itself for existing, "Tonya and Nancy: The Inside Story" is television's first movie in years to have its own out-of-body experience. Unfortunately, that in no way enhances the experience of watching it.
