Boston Celtics guard Terrence Williams was arrested this weekend after allegedly threatening his child’s mother with a gun.
According to CBS Sports, the alleged incident happened around 1:55 pm Sunday in Kent, Washington.
During a scheduled child visitation with his 10-year-old son, the NBA athlete reportedly got into an argument with the child’s mother and pulled out a gun.
The woman told police that Williams threatened her with the firearm before leaving the area. The Celtics guard was later found and arrested.
Williams was in police custody as of Sunday night, according to tweets from Chris Daniels of NBC affiliate KING5.
An investigation is ongoing.
“We investigate and treat all cases such as this very seriously regardless of the status of those involved” Kent Police Detective Melanie Frazier said.
A former Louisville Cardinal, Terrence Williams was selected as No. 11 overall in the 2009 NBA Draft by the New Jersey Nets.
After bouncing around for a few years between the NBA, the D-League, and China, Williams signed a 10-day contract to the Celtics in February.
By early March, he signed an extension for the 2013-14 season; however, that is not guaranteed if he is waived before July 1 and only partially guaranteed if waived before October 31.
Over the course of his four year NBA career, Williams holds averages of 7.1 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per contest.
