Man Who Delton Williams Reportedly Brandished Gun To Reportedly Wants Charge Dropped
The person who was the victim of Delton Williams' apparent road rage last month is asking for clemency for the Michigan State running back.
The victim wrote a letter to police after the incident asking for a gun charge against Williams to be dropped. The Detroit Free Press reports the victim learned Williams' older brother, Jaree Warren, 24, was shot to death outside an Erie, Penn. bar in December. The victim told police that changed the way he felt about what happened.
An excerpt from the victim's letter to police, via the Free Press:
"I wouldn't want him to be thrown out of school over a silly mistake he made in a moment of fear. I believe he will learn his lesson and move on to better things."
Williams, 21, has been suspended from the football team. He allegedly cut off the victim while driving on MSU's campus, then brandished a handgun, for which he had a legal license to carry, after the victim honked at him.
The junior-to-be running back in mid-March was arrested and charged with brandishing a firearm, which is a misdemeanor punishable by up to 90 days in jail.
Williams is a two year letterman, and was MSU’s third leading rusher in 2014, compiling 316 yards on 54 carries. He also scored a career best 5 touchdowns in 2014. His career totals 92 carries for 554 yards and six touchdowns in 22 games.
Do you think police should honor the victim's request and drop the charge against Williams? And aside from the legal situation, do you think Williams still belongs in the MSU football program? Here's my take:
