Get into an argument with a former girlfriend or spouse and chances are you are going to be arrested for domestic violence. That is exactly what happened to former Rainier Beach, now NBA basketball star, Terrence Williams. He was arrested this past Sunday for allegedly threatening with a gun a woman who claims to be the mother of his 10 year old son. The alleged incident took place in downtown Kent, Washington at around 2AM. The woman allegedly claimed that Williams brandished a firearm and made threats against her during an argument between the two during a visitation exchange. Police are required by law to arrest one of the parties when called to a domestic violence incident. In the case involving Williams and his son’s mother, Williams was considered to be the one who was out-of-bounds.
