HOUSTON (AP) - NFL receiver Reggie Williams must serve two years
of probation for cocaine possession in a case in which a Taser was
used to subdue him.
Williams on Monday pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance. A judge sentenced the 25-year-old unrestricted free agent to deferred adjudication and fined Williams $200.
District attorney's office spokeswoman Donna Hawkins told The Associated Press that Williams will face random drug testing in Harris County. Hawkins says Williams will not have a felony conviction on his record if he successfully completes probation.
Williams, who played for the Jacksonville last year, was arrested in April when he allegedly refused to leave a bar. An off-duty police officer used a Taser on Williams.
