The one and only outstanding legal issue for Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ wide receiver Mike Williams in which he was a suspect stemmed from an incident late last year, where he received a misdemeanor charge for damaging a door and trespassing.
And at a hearing on Thursday, Williams was placed into a intervention program, which combined with paying restitution for the damages he caused, will lead to the charges against him being dropped.
Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times and Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune provided all of the details, which were provided by Williams’ attorney, who handled the case.
With this minor incident legally settled (assuming Williams completes the program), the “troubled” wideout now has no pending legal issues apart from his involvement as a victim in a stabbing. According to witnesses, Williams was upset that his brother damaged his Bentley, and when confronted, his brother opted to stab Williams in the leg and then run.
Williams certainly has some priorities to sort out and a public relations nightmare to clean up, but nothing he’s done merits a release any time soon. With these charges dropped, and assuming he had no criminal part in his own stabbing, the Syracuse product can focus on completing his intervention program and getting back to football.
