Redskins Trent Williams won’t be playing in Sunday’s Pro Bowl game after receiving six-stitches Friday night. Williams was in a Honolulu nightclub when he was hit over the head with a champagne bottle and also ended up being tasered.
The NFL released a statement:
“[Williams] was the victim of an assault at a nightclub in central Honolulu early this morning and another individual has been arrested. Due to an injury sustained during the assault, he will not play in the Pro Bowl and has been replaced by Matt Kalil.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.”
Captain Andrew Lum, Office of the Chief, Honolulu Police Department, released a statement as well:
“At 1:30 am this morning, Honolulu Police Department (HPD) officers responded to a report of a large affray at a night club in central Honolulu. Three males were injured during the affray. Two were treated and released from the hospital, and the third male declined treatment. One male was arrested for Assault in the 3rd Degree and additional arrests are likely. The HPD has opened an Assault 2nd and four Assault 3rd investigations. The investigation into these offenses continue.”
It goes down like that in Hawaii?? I wonder if Seahawks Richard Sherman is somewhere secretly giggling.
