Ex-NFL DE Williams arrested on trespassing charge

Former No. 1 overall NFL draft pick Mario Williams was arrested in Texas on a trespassing charge.

Williams, 34, allegedly entered a woman’s home Tuesday in the Houston suburb of Katy, Texas, without her permission, according to court documents obtained by KHOU Channel 11.

Williams has a child with the woman, who filed a restraining order against him in May, per the report.

He was released on $100 bond and must undergo a court-ordered mental health or intellectual disability assessment.

The Houston Texans’ top pick in the 2006 draft, Williams earned four Pro Bowl selections during an 11-year career with the Texans (2006-11), Buffalo Bills (2012-15) and Miami Dolphins (2016).

He registered 97.5 career sacks, 399 tackles and 16 forced fumbles in 158 games (150 starts). Williams earned All-Pro first team honors in 2014 with Buffalo with a career-high 14.5 sacks.
