NBA exhibitions are on and so are the busy hands of a few
basketball players. As reported earlier, the Sacramento Kings
backup forward Justin Williams has been named as a suspect in a
a sexual assault case, which allegedly took place at his
Sacramento home. According to the police, the assault took place
on Friday and they were notified the same day by the victim, a
20-year-old woman who knew Williams for some time, from the
hospital in which she sought help.
The local police got a warrant and
carried out a search of the home of Justin Williams on
Wednesday. Spokesman for the police department said in a press
conference that "several items were retrieved" from Williams'
home, but did not elaborate further. The police also said that
another person was present during the assault, but did not
release a name. Justin Williams was signed by the Sacramento
Kings as an undrafted rookie from Wyoming last season, during
which he played in 26 games.
Meanwhile New Jersey Nets star Jason
Kidd is being accused by a woman that he grabbed her crouch in
the Manhattan's Tenjune Club earlier this month. According to
reports unconfirmed by the New York Police Department, Kidd
approached the woman and grabbed her crouch and kept on groping
the woman until she left the club. The NYPD confirms that a
woman has filed a harassment report against another Tenjune Club
patron a week ago, but did not say if there is a complaint
against Jason Kidd. According to Kidd spokesman, the accusation
is "a complete fabrication and it is sad that someone would make
something like this up." Jason Kidds, while playing for the
Phoenix Suns, plead guilty to spousal abuse and was ordered to
take anger management classes.
