New York Jets star busted at LaGuardia Airport

BY BILL PARRY
Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams was arrested
and charged with criminal possession of a
weapon after he tried to board a flight at LaGuardia
Airport while allegedly carrying a gun Thursday
night. A spokesman for the Port Authority Police Department
said Williams was detained for possessing
an unloaded Glock 19 pistol around 9:15 p.m. at the
Delta check-in counter.
Williams had a permit for the pistol issued in his
home state of Alabama. Williams was issued a desk
summons for a court appearance on March 25, according
to the Queens District Attorney’s office.
Williams and his agent Nicole Lynn were not
available for comment but a team spokesman said,
“We have been in contact with Quinnen Williams
and are fully aware of the situation. We will have no
additional comment as this is a pending legal matter.
” Williams, 22, was the Jets first-round pick and the
third player chosen overall in last year’s draft, making
him the highest-drafted defensive player in team
history. As a rookie out of the University of Alabama,
Williams had 28 tackles and 2 ½ sacks.
The defensive tackle is listed on the team’s roster
as 6-foot-3, 303 pounds. He signed a four-year, $32.5
million contract with the Jets.
It was not clear where Williams was heading
from LaGuardia Airport, according to the PAPD
