NBA basketball player Terrence Williams, a former Rainier Beach High School star, was arrested Sunday in Kent for making threats with a gun.

Williams was taken into custody without incident. Kent Police said it was a domestic violence case under investigation.

The incident happened around 1:55 p.m. Sunday in downtown Kent. The victim is a woman who told police she has a 10-year-old son whose father is Williams.

The woman told police that Williams had a scheduled visitation exchange with the boy on Sunday, and during the exchange in a downtown Kent parking lot, the two began arguing. The woman told police that Williams brandished a firearm and made threats. He then left the area.

Police said they later located Williams and took him into custody.

An investigation is ongoing.

Williams, 25, a basketball guard, has played four seasons in the NBA, most recently with the Boston Celtics. He averaged 4.6 points and 2.4 assists per game this season.
