Former NBA star Jayson Williams is facing DUI charges after crashing his SUV into a tree on Tuesday. Williams was admitted to the hospital with minor injuries from the crash and is listed in stable condition.
According to the NYPD, Jayson Williams drove off the road and crashed into a tree in Manhattan on Tuesday morning. Police responding to the wreck found Williams in the passenger seat of the vehicle when they arrived. Witnesses, however, claim Williams had been driving the SUV at the time of the crash and no one else was in the vehicle.
Officers reportedly attempted to administer a breathalyzer test to Williams at the scene but he refused to submit. Williams was transported to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries from the accident. The NYPD reported that Williams appeared to have been drinking before the crash.
In addition to pending DWI charges, Williams is also facing a retrial for manslaughter for killing his driver with a shotgun in 2002. Williams claims the shooting was accidental. The first jury to hear the case was hopelessly deadlocked and a new trial is pending in the case.
