Ex-Eagle Sean Williams Arrested Again

Just last month, I had the displeasure of reporting that former Boston College center Sean Williams was arrested for trespassing at BC.  Well, he is making headlines again, and again the news is not good.

He was arrested yesterday afternoon in Denver before a New Jersey Nets game against the Nuggets.  Due to the arrest, he was unable to participate in the game.  According to the police report, he had a verbal altercation at a mall cell phone store and took it to a physical level, throwing a computer monitor and causing $1,200-$1,300 in damages.  He was charged with disorderly conduct and felony criminal mischief and posted bond.

As I noted last month, this is another blemish on his record, one that is marked far more often by off-court issues than in-game headlines.  He is a talented shot blocker and incidents like this only serve to hold him back from reaching his potential.

One must now begin to wonder how many more chances the Nets will offer an 11-12 minute per night guy.  At some point, his trouble outweighs his talent.  The 22-year-old, in his second pro season, is averaging 2.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 0.9 blocks per game this season in limited action.

  1. I bet he’ll be let go or just a loose piece in a big trade. His off-the-court issues are just too much of a headache.
