Bail set at $25,000 for NBA’s Terrence Williams in gun case
A King County Superior Court judge this afternoon set bail at $25,000 for NBA basketball player Terrence Williams, the former Rainier Beach High School star who was arrested over the weekend for allegedly threatening a woman with a handgun.
Judge Charles DeLaurenti II found probable cause to hold Williams, 25, for investigation of second-degree assault. Prosecutors had sought $50,000 bail.
Williams, who plays for the Boston Celtics, appeared in court in handcuffs and a jail jumpsuit.
Williams was arrested Sunday in Kent for allegedly making threats with a gun to his son’s mother.
According to Kent police, Williams was in a downtown Kent parking lot shortly before 2 p.m. to pick up or drop off his 10-year-old son. The mother of the boy told police that during the custody exchange for the scheduled visit, she and Williams had argued and he brandished a firearm and made threats.
He then left the area, but was later located and taken into custody without incident, police said.
William, who played college basketball at Louisville, has played four seasons in the NBA, most recently with the Celtics. He averaged 4.6 points and 2.4 assists per game this season. He owns a home in Maple Valley.
