Former NFL defensive lineman Mario Williams was arrested this week for allegedly trespassing.

Williams, who was drafted by the Houston Texans with the first overall pick in the 2006 draft, was accused of entering a woman’s home without permission on Tuesday, according to court records reviewed by Julian Gill of the Houston Chronicle. He was charged with a Class B misdemeanor charge of criminal trespassing and posted $100 bond.

TMZ reports that Williams and the woman have a child together, though it’s unclear if they are still in a relationship. Williams allegedly broke into the woman’s home and began yelling, and she became extremely emotional and told him to leave.

A judge has ordered a mental health and intellectual disability assessment for Williams.

Williams, 34, played 11 seasons in the NFL. He made the Pro Bowl four times and recorded 97.5 sacks.
