New Jersey suffered a blowout loss to the Nuggets Monday night at the Pepsi Center, an outcome that probably wouldn’t have changed had F Sean Williams not been cooling his heels in a Denver police station. The BC alumnus was arrested and charged with felony criminal mischief after a dispute at a local mall. Many of us are unhappy with AT&T’s erratic 3G coverage, but violence and vandalism never solved anything. From the Star-Ledger’s Dave D’Alessandro :
The incident occurred at 2 p.m. Monday at the AT&T Mobility store inside the Park Meadows Mall. According to police, Williams had a verbal altercation with the clerk, and picked up a computer monitor and threw it. The monitor and other equipment was broken, causing damages estimated to be about $1,200 to $1,300.
Williams was then taken into custody “without further incident,” and transported to Douglas County Jail, where he posted bond.
As the Nets prepared to play the Nuggets here, they only said they were aware of the incident, without acknowledging specifics.
“All I know is that there was an altercation, and he was arrested,” team president Rod Thorn said. “It’s in the hands of authorities.”
Thorn didn’t even know whether his second-year forward had an attorney, brusquely dismissing it with, “That’s up to him.”
According to Pinson, no attorney was affiliated with the case as of 11 p.m. last night.
When asked whether the team would take disciplinary action against the erratic 22-year-old, Thorn replied, “I don’t know enough about it yet. We’ll see what transpires.”
