BOSTON (CBS) – Boston Celtics guard Terrence Williams was arrested in Washington on Sunday after the 25-year-old allegedly made threats to the mother of his child with a gun.
The Kent Reporter reported Sunday evening that police are investing a domestic violence case involving the Celtics guard. They were called to the victim’s home around 1:55 p.m. on Sunday after an argument began in the parking lot, where Williams allegedly pulled a gun on the victim, who he has a 10-year-old son with.
Williams was there for a scheduled visit and left before police arrived. He was later found and taken into custody.
“We investigate and treat all cases such as this very seriously regardless of the status of those involved,” Kent police detective Melanie Frazier told The Kent Reporter.
Williams was signed a 10-day contract with Boston in February after spending the early part of the NBA season playing in China. He was signed for the rest of the season and through next year, and is scheduled to earn $947,907 if he is not waived on or before October 31.
Williams averaged 4.6 points, 1.6 assists, and 1.8 rebounds in 24 games for the Celtics during the 2012-13 season.
