Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams was hit
over the head with a champagne bottle and tasered as the victim of an
altercation early Friday morning, according to Grant Paulsen of CBS Sports DC.
Williams’ injuries aren’t thought to be serious, as he only required stitches,
but he will be held out of this weekend’s Pro Bowl, according to a statement
made by the NFL.
“Trent Williams was the victim of an assault at a night club
in central Honolulu early this morning and another individual has been
arrested,” an NFL spokesman said. “Due to an injury sustained during the
assault, he will not play in the Pro Bowl and has been replaced by Matt Kalil.
Trent is still a member of this year’s NFC All-Star team and will be on the
sidelines this Sunday wearing his jersey. He will be credited with a Pro
Bowl appearance and receive a full player’s share.”
The altercation took place around 1:30 a.m. on Friday
morning, according to the Honolulu Police Department. Officers responded to a “large
affray” at a night club where three males were ultimately found injured. Two of
the men, including Williams, were treated for their injuries while the third declined
One man was arrested for assault in the 3rd
degree and the police expect to make additional arrests.
