Eric Baylor turns himself in after Mike Williams stabbing


Eric Baylor, the brother of Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams, turned himself in on Monday night. A warrant was issued for Baylor’s arrest Monday on a felony count of aggravated battery and domestic violence after he allegedly stabbed Williams in the leg.

FOX 13 in Tampa Bay reported that Baylor was booked at around 10:00 p.m. on Monday.

The incident occurred on Sunday, and Williams claimed that his 23-year-old brother stabbed him accidentally while the two were horsing around. After speaking with witnesses and gathering evidence, police decided that Williams’ story was not credible and a warrant was issued for Baylor’s arrest.

Back in February, Bucs head coach Lovie Smith said there was a pattern of behavior emerging with Williams off the field that he does not approve of.

“Have I been disappointed in Mike Williams? Of course,” Smith said. “There’s a standard. We’re just not going to put up with it, no matter who it is. You have to be good on the field and off the field — simple as that. If you’re not doing what you need to do, one or the other, you have problems, and that’s where Mike has to take care of a few things.”

Williams signed a six-year, $40 million contract with Tampa last summer. Given some of the issues he has had off the field over the past two seasons, it would not be a surprise if the Bucs end up cutting their losses and releasing him.
