Jayson Williams in a Car Crash

What’s lower than rock-bottom? Because Jayson has found it (via Tzvi): “Former NBA star Jayson Williams is facing drunk driving charges after an early morning SUV accident on a northbound exit of the FDR Drive in Manhattan, CBS 2 HD has learned. The NYPD said Williams was driving while intoxicated around 3:15 a.m. Tuesday when his black Mercedes-Benz SUV veered off the curved exit at East 20th Street. Williams was in the passenger seat when officers arrived and told them someone else had been driving. But witnesses told police they saw him in the driver’s seat, and officers said no one else was in the car. Williams was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries.”

    This guy really needs help. He’s done made so many mistakes in his life already.

    I first thought it was Jay Williams, the Bulls’ second pick in the 2002 draft, who had an motorcicle accident that ended his career. But nope.

  • tavoris

    did he really think that “I’ma get int he passenger seat” was gonna work with nobody else in the car? Where did the driver run off to in cold-arse New York City?

    i was gonna make a joke about him trying to blame someone else for the accident, then i clicked and read that he had already done that. can we get this man some help? or a prison sentence. either/or.

    Williams is still keeping up that pattern of ridiculous excuses for irresponsible behaviour.

    He’s still keeping up that pattern of making ridiculous excuses.

    He really must have been drunk if he thought that excuse was going to fly with the cops.

  • tavoris

    that’s cold, Boing..damn

  • tavoris

    TADOne…u kno the drunkard is the last person to know they’re drunk.
    @nicko-NJ is slowly-but surely-working on rectifying that. They botched the prosecution BIG time the first time around.

  • boy sanchez

    Can you imagine the scene with Williams drunk and siting in the passenger’s seat and telling the cops: “It wasn’t me…” while pointing in an empty driver’s seat? :D

  • boy sanchez

    Still wonder where he got the idea from…????

  • tavoris

    @boy_sanchez, every person who’s driven while intoxicated b4 has thought about that “what if” scenario should they get pulled over. Most of us aren’t stupid enough to try it tho.

  • nicko

    what if he was driving a limo…..

  • Hussman25

    Where are his family, friends, associates at????? This man keeps doin dumb s**t after dumb s**t! He needs a hobby or something to keep his @zz in check… This man is just gonna make the judge’s job @ trial that much easier!

  • Tim

    He does all that for attention and so the media can keep his name fresh

  • LB

    Wow. How pulling out a gun to look like “The man” has turned this guy’s life into total crap. Sad.

  • Michael Scorn

    @Nicko – You just don’t get it do you. Quit using reason to rationalize information.

  • al

    dude has won a lotta of rebounding titles, but this may be the time he dosen’t win that $h!t in the that category in his life..
    here’s hoping he learns and everyone realizes how dangerous D&D driving is for everyone on the road..

  • Bomberharris

    I did have a driver, but I shot him.

  • str8 from samoa

    Sh!t, I thought it was White Chocolate before going about with my life.

  • tavoris

    @al, he only won 1. He’s labeled as a “star” when he was really just a poor man’s David Lee.

    Boing Dynasty: no need for comments like that.
    Anyway, update: Williams broke his neck, but not paralyzed.
