Boston Celtics guard Terrence Williams found himself in some trouble with the law over the weekend. Williams was arrested in Kent, Washington over the weekend after a domestic dispute. He was arrested for allegedly making threats with a gun. The police are now investigating the situation.

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. (Seattle Times)

Williams was drafted in 2009 by the New Jersey Nets as the 11th pick. He had a decent rookie campaign but has bounced around the league since then, playing for four teams in four seasons. He played in 78 games his rookie season averaging 8.4 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists. Since then he hasn’t appeared in more then 30 games.

Terrence joined the Celtics in February on a 10-day contract. He showed Doc Rivers enough in that stretch to earn a contract for the rest of the season and a non-guaranteed contract for the 2013-14 season. He finally got a chance to prove himself in April thanks to injuries and did well averaging 7.3 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists over the final eight games in a reserve role.

The question now is will the Celtics part ties before this situation fully plays out?
