Mike Williams caused $200 worth of damage to a door

Mike Williams' misdemeanor charges stem from a December incident when he damaged someone's door.

A few details on Mike Williams' misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief and trespassing are starting to come out. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver caused $200 worth of damage to a front door on December 13, when he "without being authorized, licensed or invited, willfully enter(ed) or remain(ed)" in someone else's property, according to court documents obtained by the Tampa Tribune.

Williams has a clean record since entering the NFL, although he had a few incidents in college (none of them serious) which eventually to him leaving the Syracuse football team in his final year in college. Despite being highly thought-of as a player, he dropped to the fourth round of the 2010 NFL draft due to those issues, but has since steered clear of the law with one dismissed DUI charge being the only noteworthy incident.

It's important to keep in mind that Williams has only been charged and not convicted of these crimes, and equally important to keep in mind that even if convicted he's likely to get off with little more than a slap on the wrist. Still, this is not a good look for the receiver.
