Prosecutors need more time to review case against NBA’s Terrence Williams

King County prosecutors said they need more time to review the allegations against NBA player Terrence Williams, who was arrested Sunday after the mother of his 10-year-old son told police he had flashed a handgun at her.

“There’s an ongoing investigation and a charging decision will be made at a later date,” Dan Donohoe, a spokesman for the prosecuting attorney’s office, said today.

Today was the deadline for prosecutors to file a second-degree assault charge against Williams, a former Rainier Beach High School star.

Williams was released from the Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent on Monday after he posted $25,000 bail. His attorney, Aaron Kiviat, had said at the bail hearing Monday that the claims by the alleged victim was not the full story.

According to court documents, Williams was dropping off his son at the boy’s mother’s home in Kent when she attempted to speak to Williams.

“The mother came outside with her current boyfriend, and wanted to talk to Terrence about some disparaging remarks that Terrence had made in the past about her other children. Terrence refused to get out of the vehicle so the mother started banging on his hood, insisting that they talk,” the documents said.

“While seated in the vehicle Terrence pulled out a handgun, stuck it out the driver’s side window and aimed it at the mother,” prosecutors allege.

Williams, who played college basketball at Louisville before joining the NBA, then drove off, police said.

He was later arrested without incident, police said.

William played last season with the Boston Celtics and averaged 4.6 points and 2.4 assists per game.
