Williams was arrested April 29, 2019, on allegations she assaulted her ex-girlfriend. Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputies reported that after they separated the two, Williams grabbed a gun, pointed it at one of them, then sped away in her car.
In July, the WNBA suspended Williams for 10 games after conducting its own investigation into the incident. It also ordered her to undergo counseling.MORE NEWS: Huntington City School District Employee Arrested For Lewd Acts With Minor
