By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

New York Jets defensive end Quinnen Williams made a questionable decision. Now, he is going to have to pay for it.

Williams was arrested for attempting to take a gun onto a plane at LaGuardia Airport in Queens, New York on Thursday night. The incident happened at 9:15 pm EST, according to the Port Authority.

It’s unclear where Williams was flying too. It’s also unclear why Williams had the gun with him.

Every passenger goes through a Transportation Security Administration (TSA) search when they fly. That’s possibly when he got busted and arrested for having the gun.

The 2019 No. 3 overall pick was processed for criminal possession of a weapon. According to Sports Illustrated, he had an Alabama permit for a gun, but the story did not mention whether it was the gun in question.

Following his arrest, he was processed by the Port Authority Police Department. The case then will be provided to the Queen’s District Attorney Office, a report said.

He was a star player with the Alabama Crimson Tide. In his first season the NFL, he appeared in 13 games.

Williams had 28 tackles with 2.5 sacks.

While he is facing charges with the authorities, he will also likely be punished by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. Williams will likely be suspended under the league’s personal conduct policy.
