KENT, Wash. —
Terrence Williams, a Boston Celtics guard and former Rainier Beach High School standout, was ordered held on $25,000 bail Monday after a Sunday arrest for allegedly threating his ex-girlfriend with a handgun.
He was at the Park Place Apartments in Kent to pick up his 10-year-old son.
“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,” according to court documents obtained Monday by KIRO 7. “Terrence refused to get out of the vehicle so the mother started banging on the hood, insisting that they talk.
“While seated in the vehicle Terrence pulled out a handgun, stuck it out the driver side window, and aimed it at the mother.”
He left and was arrested later by. Kent police said Williams has a concealed weapons permit and that officers are interviewing witnesses in the ongoing case. Williams has not been charged.
Williams’ mother, siblings and cousins were in court, but none would talk with KIRO 7. His attorney also declined to comment. Williams, who has played with four NBA teams since being drafted by the New Jersey Nets, owns a home in Maple Valley and has three children in King County.
KIRO 7’s Amy Clancy was the only television reporter in the courtroom at the Regional Justice Center when Williams faced a judge today.
Williams led Rainier Beach to a Class 3A state championship in 2003 and went on to play at Louisville where he was a co-captain under coach Rick Pitino. He was the 11th pick in the 2009 NBA draft and signed a multi-year contract with the Celtics in March.
