Mike Williams faces trespass, criminal mischief charges

Bucs wide receiver Mike Williams gets to introduce himself to a new coach and a new General Manager with some old criminal charges.

According to Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Williams has an arraignment on Feb. 24 on misdemeanor criminal mischief and trespassing charges. The charges stem from an unspecified incident in December.

“We have spoken with Mike Williams and the local authorities regarding the charges that have been filed against him,” the Bucs said in a statement. “All of our players are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects the high character and moral responsibility that we demand as representatives of the Buccaneers organization.”

Williams missed the last 10 games of 2013, after being placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury. He signed a six-year, $40 million extension last offseason.

While he entered the league with character questions (which caused him to fall to the fourth round), but hasn’t had any issues since a 2010 DUI charge was dismissed.

    Pathetic. Good job letting your new coaching staff and all us buc fans down. What a joke, I saw a video of him rapping and he is garbage at it. Thanks for the good start to the off season Mike Williams. What a bum

    ‘Unspecified incidents’ are the news equivalent of flaccidity in adult entertainment.

    That $40M, went to his head. The money makes these guys think they’re invincible. Was probably going somewhere to kick someones ass.

    Most players on I.R spend as much te as possible improving their health and athletic abilities so they can come back as good or better. It seems Williams has taken this time as a personal vacation. What a reflection of character and maturity he has shown in all the wrong ways.

    Fat, law abiding Mike Williams will be blamed for low character, athletically productive mike williams criminal behavior.

    I just farted and it really stinks in here…

    Didn’t the Bucs structure his contract in a way that they can cut him this offseason and not pay him any money? I thought I read something about his contract because of this exact reason.

    Give Patterson some time around that organization it is in their blood to rub off on him. Also the losing mentality in that organization will rub off on him to.

    “Cordell Patterson doesn’t get in trouble”. How about Erin Henderson ? Does he? Go hawks! Vikings suck.

    As usual facts are in short supply. There’s only a charge. Let’s not convict the guy just yet.

    So with him getting in trouble, do we now have the luxury of cutting him with no cap hit?
