Former New Jersey Nets second-round pick Jordan Williams was one of four people arrested this past weekend in connection with an alleged kidnapping, robbery and an assault of a juvenile male on Thanksgiving night in Connecticut.
The juvenile was kidnapped at knifepoint, then robbed of his clothing and his personal items. He was also assaulted inside a home, before later fleeing, according to the Torrington Police Department press release.
During the investigation, the detectives determined that the alleged incident was revenge for a drug deal that went bad.
Isamar Dirocie, 26-years-old, is facing the worst of the charges. He is facing first-degree kidnapping and robbery. Williams, also 26-years-old, is facing third-degree assault and strangulation, breach of peace and risk of injury to a minor.
If convicted, Williams will face a minimum of one-year in jail. He could potentially face the maximum of ten-years in jail. He is being held on $300,000 in bail.
This is not Williams first run-in with the law. He and four other teens were charged with third-degree assault and breach of peace in 2009 for incident. Those chargers were later dropped.
Williams played one season with the Nets, where he averaged 4.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 14.8 minutes per game in 43 appearances.
