Mike Williams' stabbed during argument over Bentley

Al Messerschmidt

Mike Williams' brother damaged his car, which led to an argument, a paring knife and blood shooting everywhere.

The Tampa Bay Times managed to answer a few of the questions we've had regarding Mike Williams getting stabbed by his own brother. Like: what the hell even happened? The Times interviewed witnesses to get to the bottom of how an argument over a Bentley led to a paring-knife-in-thigh and "blood that was shooting everywhere".

According to carpet cleaners William Carter and Clermon Vaughn, who were at Mike Williams' residence to...clean carpets, Williams arrived home and within ten minutes managed to get stabbed by his brother. Apparently, Eric Baylor (Williams' brother) had knocked out the back window of a Bentley belonging to Mike Williams, and the two were arguing over damage to the car.

"Mike wasn't the aggressor," Carter said. "But I guess he was a little upset about that and he told him to get out." Vaughn noted that Baylor then seemed panicked and remorseful, before leaving when the police arrived.

From this account, it doesn't seem like Williams did anything wrong. His brother damaged one of his cars, he was angry over it -- and his brother stabbed him during the ensuing argument. With a paring knife. I have a hard time seeing this as anything other than Williams being the victim, and can't imagine that Lovie Smith would hold this against him. As Smith said yesterday: he won't kick Williams off the team for being a victim.
