Former Husky Reggie Williams gets probation in Texas drug case

NFL receiver Reggie Williams must serve two years of probation for cocaine possession in a case in which a Taser was used to subdue him.

HOUSTON — NFL wide receiver Reggie Williams, a former Washington Husky, must serve two years of probation for cocaine possession in a case in which a Taser was used to subdue him.

Williams on Monday pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance.

A judge sentenced the 25-year-old unrestricted free agent to deferred adjudication and fined him $200.

A district attorney's office spokeswoman, Donna Hawkins, told The Associated Press that Williams will face random drug testing in Harris County. Hawkins said Williams will not have a felony conviction on his record if he successfully completes probation.

Williams, who played for the Jacksonville Jaguars the last five seasons, was arrested last month when he allegedly refused to leave a bar in Houston. Police said Williams struggled with two off-duty officers who tried to escort him out and one of them used a Taser on him.

In February, Williams was arrested in Houston on DUI and marijuana charges, which later were dropped.

Williams, a graduate of Lakes High School in Lakewood, was the ninth player taken in the 2004 draft. He caught 37 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns last season.
