Mike Williams BucsTampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams is in the hospital after allegedly being stabbed in the thigh by his brother Sunday.

WTSP reports that the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says Williams was stabbed at his home. Williams’ brother is the suspect. Police reportedly are looking for Williams’ brother.

Williams has been in the news lately for his off-field behavior. We posted last month about all the issues he had at his home. He was described as a terrible neighbor, and he reportedly had a stripper pole in the living room of his party home, which was a disturbance in the normally quiet gated community.

Williams, who played in 6 games last season and caught 22 passes for 216 yards, is due in court for a pre-trial hearing on March 27. The hearing is for his arrest on charges of trespassing and criminal mischief.

New Bucs coach Lovie Smith recently described Williams’ off-field behavior as “disturbing.”

The Bucs issued the following statement about the alleged incident.

“We are aware of the situation that occurred at the residence of Mike Williams and are working with him and the authorities to get additional information. While we have limited knowledge at this time, our primary concern is for the safety and well bring of all involved. We will refrain from further comment until we can get a better understanding of the situation.”
