Mike Williams due in court in March for criminal mischief case

Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said last week that he found wide receiver Mike Williams’ recent pattern of behavior disturbing, a view fueled in part by Williams’ recent arrest on charges of trespassing and criminal mischief.

Williams is due in court on March 27 for a pre-trial hearing on the case after entering a written plea of not guilty on Monday. Williams was set to be arraigned, but was granted an arraignment waiver because of his plea and the case will move forward to the next stage.

The charges, both misdemeanors, stem from an incident in December. The court documents say Williams “did willfully or maliciously injure or damage real or personal property” belonging to Gabrielle Edwards after entering her home without invitation. There was $200 or less of damage done to Edwards’ front door.

Williams’ attorney told the Tampa Tribune that he was confident the case would be resolved before reaching the pre-trial phase begins in March. That would be good for Williams as he tries to make a better impression on his coach over the rest of the offseason.

    You know his first few years in the league, those years when he’d slipped to the 4th round due to character concerns and decided he’d be a model citizen and work his butt off in order to prove everybody wrong?

    Yeah, I think I liked those years more.

    Sheesh.. $200 in damage is nothing compared to the $50,000 he did to the house he was LIVING in.

    Dude seemed to have his head on straight until he got his big money contract. SMH

    He is a dumbass who only played good off of Jackson’s double coverage. He isn’t garbage, but he sure isn’t worth what we are paying him and as far as the off field issues. He sounds like a little punk bi&@$ trying to be cool

    Give me a break. You guys know nothing of Mike Smith! $200???? That could be as simple as scraping the paint!

    He has no character concerns. I can’t stand you nobodies who know nothing about people passing judgement.

    Get a life, losers.
