The saga that is Jayson Williams’ post-NBA life continues to stumble on. After agreeing to a plea deal for accidentally shooting his limo driver in 2002, Williams reportedly had a change of heart. And now, while waiting on a new trial, he has been arrested on DWI charges.
Former NBA player Jayson Williams is facing DWI charges after smashing his SUV into a tree in an early morning East Side crash.
The former Nets player was driving his black Mercedes SUV on the FDR, and exited at the northbound E. 20th street exit. He hit a treet at East 18th street and Avenue C at 3:15 a.m., police said.
Witnesses said he was driving the car but slid into the passenger seat after the crash before police arrived. He told police someone else had been driving and refused to take a Breathalyzer test.
Sit down somewhere, Jayson. Please.
