For Jayson Williams, Idle Time and Money Is a Recipe For Disaster

January 6th, 2010 by Chris Lane Leave a reply »

Former NBA player Jayson Williams is back in the limelight.

Unfortunately for Williams, it is due to another notch on his belt of legal woes.

Early Tuesday morning, Williams drove his SUV into a tree off of a Manhattan road, and was later charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI).

Since the notorious incident at his New Jersey home in February of 2002, Williams has had three run ins with the law, all of which have occurred since April of 2009.

He was tasered by NYPD officers in his hotel room in April of 2009, because of violent and suicidal behavior, along with the fact he was intoxicated, with numerous empty prescription pill bottles in the room.

In May of 2009, Williams was arrested outside of a Raleigh, N.C. bar after getting into a fight. He was charged with simple assault, yet the man whom he hit later dropped charges because witnesses claimed Williams was breaking up the fight and not the aggressor.
