Trent Williams Got Cut In Hawaii (Update: And Also Tasered)

Two weeks ago I wrote, “This Richard Sherman video reveals Trent Williams is insane.” Turns out that may’ve been foreshadowing (via @granthpaulsen):

Sources: Trent Williams was involved in altercation last night resulting in him needing stitches, being pulled out of Pro Bowl.

Considering the season he’d just had, that’s a damn shame. He’d bounced back from drug suspension in 2011 to emerge as a team leader and one of the best left tackles in football. Yet here he is closing out the campaign by shoving a dude in the face after a playoff game and reportedly getting cut up before the Pro Bowl game.

And who gets in a fight in Hawaii? That’s only allowed if you’re trying to surf North Shore and some locals treat you like a haole.

Either way, it’s not what you want to hear about the second-most valuable player on your roster. Get right, Silverback.

Update: Adam Schefter shares info from Honolulu PD of “a large affray at a night club,” including that “Williams is not a suspect” and “he got stitches in his head and was tasered.” The NFL says he’s a victim of assault.

Update No. 2: Schefter story for ESPN.com has this incredible passage:

Trent Williams […] was Tasered in the back and cracked over the head with a champagne bottle during the melee yet still did not fall to the ground, sources say.

“It was like he was Jason on ‘Friday the 13th’ — man just wouldn’t go down,” one source said of the 6-foot-5, 318-pound Williams.

D.C. sports fan and digital media guy that's been doing this since 2004. Once threw a football further than Chris Cooley.

    I remember our mini conversation on that, and it looks like you were far closer to reality

    Looks like you were way off and just coming out with yet another wrong remark. He is NOT a suspect and doesnt need to “get right” if hes not in the wrong in the first place. Maybe this site needs a little “act right” and less gossip.

    We didn’t accuse him of anything, so what were we way off about?

    Getting tasered usually means you aren’t completely cooperative or innocent bro, not gossip

    does the report say he was tased by a policer officer? assuming that at this point sounds like gossip.
