Court hearing set for Celtics’ Terrence Williams

Celtics guard Terrence Williams is scheduled to attend a court hearing Wednesday in Kent, Wash., where he is being investigated for second-degree domestic assault as a result of a parking lot confrontation Sunday.

The hearing will be at Norm Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent, said King County prosecutor’s office spokesman Dan Donohoe.

If convicted, Williams may face suspension by the NBA.

No charges have been filed against the 25-year-old Williams, who was arrested Sunday after, police said, he threatened the mother of his 10-year-old son with a gun during a visitation transfer in a Kent parking lot.

He spent Sunday night in jail, and was arraigned Monday, wearing shackles and a red jumpsuit in court, where a judge set his bail at $25,000. The 6-foot-6-inch, 220-pound Williams was released from jail after posting bail.

Williams tweeted the following from his verified account late Monday: “A Million Stories Not One Thats TRUE . . . Thanks To Those That Continue To Support Through Devil Testing Times . . . Those Thats Negative . . . THANKS.”

Williams, a Seattle native, joined the Celtics last season, averaging 4.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.6 assists over 13.3 minutes in 24 regular-season games. He has a nonguaranteed season left on his contract and is set to earn about $950,000 if the Celtics do not waive him on or before Oct. 31.

A Celtics spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment Tuesday.

It is unclear if police have recovered the gun allegedly involved in the parking lot altercation. Kent Police Detective Melanie Frazier declined to comment on that because the case was still under active investigation.
