NBA Player Arrested For Threatening Baby Mama With Gun

NBA players, guns and baby mamas don’t mix.

HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: If you’re going to argue with your child’s mother, leave your firearm at home.


Boston Celtics player Terrence Williams allegedly waved a firearm at his child’s mother during a weekly visit, reports The Seattle Times:

The incident happened around 1:55 p.m. Sunday in downtown Kent. The victim is a woman who told police she has a 10-year-old son whose father is Williams.

The woman told police that Williams had a scheduled visitation exchange with the boy on Sunday, and during the exchange in a downtown Kent parking lot, the two began arguing. The woman told police that Williams brandished a firearm and made threats. He then left the area.
Police said they later located Williams and took him into custody.

Williams has been a fringe NBA player in his career thus far and his role with the Celtics is currently being re-evaluated by GM Danny Ainge. Any negative publicity or legal issues obviously don’t help his attempts to increase his role with the Celtics. He recently signed a multi-year deal, but nothing is "guaranteed" in the NBA except for the initial lump sum.

Williams thus far has been somewhat of a journeyman on six NBA seasons, playing for five teams as well as a stint playing in China. He did record a triple-double April 9, 2010, with 27 points, 13 rebounds, and 10 assists in the Nets double overtime win over the Chicago Bulls.

Williams played college basketball at Louisville. He averaged 4.6 points and 2.4 assists per game this season.
