Courts in New York are limited to essential business right now due to regulations put in place to combat the spread of COVID-19 and that mean Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams will have to reschedule his first court appearance on a gun charge.

Williams was arrested at LaGuardia Airport earlier this month because a handgun was found in his carry-on luggage and was set for a court appearance on March 25 in Queens County criminal court. Williams’ attorney Alex Spiro told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News¬†that the hearing has been delayed and no new date is known at this point.

Spiro said at the time of Williams’ arrest that there was “allegedly a technical issue with the manner in which the lawfully owned firearm was stored” and that they expected a quick resolution. Williams’ gun was registered in Alabama, but not in New York.

Williams had 28 tackles, 2.5 sacks and a fumble recovery in 13 games during his rookie season.
