Quinnen Willliams’ felony weapons charges dismissed

On Monday New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams saw the two felony weapons charges against him dropped.

“As we said from the outset, this matter has been resolved with no criminal charges,” attorney Alex Spiro said in a statement. “This case was nothing more than a technical issue with the storing of a firearm, which is why the government gave Mr. Williams nothing more than a ticket.”

The charges stemmed from an arrest at LaGuardia Airport’s check-in counter in March, where Williams tried to board a flight while carrying a pistol. The 22-year-old had a permit for the weapon in Alabama but not in New York but did volunteer that he had the weapon.

Williams was the Jets first-round draft pick and third selection overall back in 2019. After a bit of a pedestrian rookie season, the former Alabama defender transformed his body in the offseason in hopes to make a larger impact on the team this season.

So far it has worked in William’s favor as he has 16 tackles and two sacks in four games in 2020.
