Ex-NBA star Jayson Williams hasn’t had an easy retirement. The former New Jersey Nets player faced reckless manslaughter charges for the shooting death of his limousine driver in 2002, and in November he was sentenced to 3 years in prison. In early 2009 he was tasered by the NYPD after reports that he became suicidal and violent. Now it’s reported that Williams fractured his neck in a car crash on the FDR Drive in Manhattan.
Williams will face drunk driving charges for the wreck. It was reported that authorities found Williams in the passenger seat and that he claimed someone else was driving, although witnesses report that no one else was in the car. He also refused a breathalyzer at the scene. Williams is now being held in the prison ward at Bellevue Hospital. [Photo: GettyImages]
