Nets' Williams out of jail, facing charges

New Jersey Nets forward Sean Williams was released from the Douglas County Jail on Monday night after trashing a computer monitor and other electronics inside a Park Meadows mall store earlier in the day, police said.

Lone Tree police were called to the AT&T Mobility store about 2 p.m. Williams was arguing with a clerk when he picked up the computer monitor and threw it, destroying a printer and other equipment in the process, police reported.

The damages were estimated at about $1,300.

Williams, 22, faces mis-demeanor disorderly conduct and criminal mischief charges.

Nets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe told The Associated Press the team was aware of the incident and looking into it. Williams was not free from jail in time to play in Monday's game against the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.

Williams, a former first-round draft pick for the Nets, earns $1.3 million this season.

The Nets declined to provide him an attorney, The Newark Star-Ledger newspaper reported.

"That's up to him," Nets president Rod Thorn told the newspaper.

Thorn did not know whether Williams would accompany the team on its flight home after the game. Denver Post (http://www.denverpost.com/nuggets/ci_11929695?source=rss)

Sorry for the confusion, I just edited the thread title to "released from jail" for clarification.

Time for the Net's to part ways with this one. They gave him a chance and he's blown it time and time again.
The guy is given an opportunity most would give their left nut for, and instead of embracing it, he ****'s on it. What an *******.

Thats the wrong mentality to have with this guy. He needs time away from the game to get some councling and help. A good game will make you feel good for an hour or two and then your issues come storming back. This guys blew it with B.C and keeps having these legal problems. I hope he gets it together.
