Nets’ Sean Williams Just Can’t Stay Out Of Trouble

Current New Jersey Nets & former Boston College forward Sean Williams seems to have a tough time making the right decisions in his life. There was his time in college when Williams was kicked off of the campus and the basketball team for a whole myriad of offenses, including smoking some of the demon weed. Williams was even arrested when he tried to go back on campus just last month, even though it’s been a few years since he attended the school. After Williams was kicked out of BC the first time, he decided to enter the NBA Draft to the confusion of many an NBA expert, but he did end up getting drafted by the New Jersey Nets, so it sort of worked out. Now Williams spends his time firmly entrenched on the Nets bench.

This leaves him with plenty of free time to pursue his other interests in life, outside of basketball. There are a whole lot of crimes out there for Sean to get arrested for, and now he has the time to commit them. He’s already been able to cross trespassing off of his “To-Do” list so now Williams has taken the next logical step in the evolutionary chain of criminality (I may have just made that up). He’s throwing computers around inside of mall cellphone stores.


Williams allegedly was involved in a verbal argument with a clerk in the AT&T Mobility Store in the Park Meadows Mall in nearby Lone Tree, according to Det. Sgt. Ron Pinson of the Lone Tree Police Dept.

“He then picked up a computer monitor and threw it inside the store. The monitor was broken and also caused damage to a printer and signature pad,” Pinson said.

Cops responded and Williams was arrested and taken without additional incident to the Douglas County Jail, where he was released after posting bail. Williams faces a court hearing today. Total damages to the store’s equipment were estimated at between $1,200 and $1,300. Because the damage was worth over $750, the criminal mischief rap is a felony.

This is obviously a joke. The real crime being committed here has nothing to do with Sean Williams and everything to do with the two-year contract they were no doubt trying to get Sean to sign. Though I’d probably just say no thanks and walk out of the store when they told me about it, but I suppose throwing computers around is just as logical a reaction as well.
