Former Louisville Cardinal Terrence Williams Arrested for "Threats with a Gun"

Former University of Louisville Cardinal and current Boston Celtic, Terrence Williams was arrested Sunday in Washington state for brandishing a gun and making threats to one of two women in which Williams has 10 year old sons with during a custody exchange. Williams, 25, would have been 15 or so at the time each birth.



A rather sad story given the quotes from Williams earlier last month in an interview with Comcast Sports Net where Williams spoke of his father and his time served in prison:

Williams uses the word “father” very specifically. He has no memories of Edgar, who served time in prison and was murdered the day he was released. Williams was only a child. “I don’t remember anything,” Williams said. “The only image I really have is when he was in jail and I was taking him some shoes with my mom for him to have. I can’t tell you any stories of, ‘Oh I remember this one time playing at the park.’ I’ve always in the past tried to remember – it’s the hardest thing to do. You can’t have a memory of something that you don’t think ever happened. So to me, I didn’t have a father. I had a dad, I had somebody that birthed me. But it’s just blank.”

Williams has at least one other son in Seattle (6) but his kids were something of a red flag during the draft process according to an interview he conducted with Draft Express.

DX: Is being too open with teams in the interview process, is that almost a fault?
TW: Honestly, it is. When you’re going into interviews you’re told to assume they already know the answer. So if they ask you, and this wasn’t one of my questions, were you arrested when you were sixteen and you say no, they already know that. So it’s like you come off as a liar and you don’t want to do that so you tell them the truth and then they start thinking, oh this guy has a bad history with the police or something like that. So you try not to be too open, but we’re told to assume they already know the answers. When I go into my interviews and they ask if I have children, I could easily say no, but they already know the answer and that you’re lying. If I tell them yes then, they get mad that I do. They could have had their first kid at fifteen but I can’t fault them because they’re trying to draft me.

The Boston Celtic guard began this season in China in the CBA before being signed to the Celtics for a 10 day contract that was later extended thru next season, where he was set to earn just under one million dollars.

In 24 games this season, Williams averaged 4.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.6 assist per game.
