Jayson Williams Hospitalized for Psychiatric Evaluation…Nuts!

Jayson Williams, who “accidentally” shot his chauffeur, and own wife revealed that he is in love with rocks and going down on white girls, has been admitted for a psychiatric evaluation:

Former Nets superstar Jayson Williams was taken to a Manhattan hospital for a psychological evaluation early today after he barricaded himself inside a hotel room and was acting “suicidal” and “violent,” authorities told The Post. Williams, 41, was removed from his room at a Manhattan hotel at 4 a.m., police sources said. Once inside the hotel, the officers confronted what sources described to The Post as “a suicidal man” who was acting “violent.”

The cops called an Emergency Services Unit for help since Williams had trashed his room. Once there, sources said, the officers used “an electrical device” to subdue Williams, who was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital for a psychological evaluation. Williams, a former college star at St. John’s, played in the NBA for nine seasons for the Philadelphia 76’ers and the New Jersey Nets.

Two months ago, Williams’ estranged wife claimed the he once threatened to kill her and their two daughters, then burn their house down. In her divorce filing, Tanya Young Williams further alleged that the former Nets forward punched out a car window while his kids sat inside the vehicle, and hurt himself after stumbling drunk into their daughters’ room to argue with his wife. In 2002, Williams was tried on charges of gunning down 55-year-old limo driver Costas “Gus” Christofi at his estate in Alexandria Township, NJ on Feb. 14, 2002. Christofi had been hired by Williams’s for a charity event at his mansion. Prosecutors claimed Williams was playing with a shotgun while giving a tour of his 30,000-square-foot home when the weapon fired, killing Christofi.

In April 2003, Williams was acquitted of the most serious charges against him – but the jury was deadlocked on reckless manslaughter charges. He currently faces a retrial on that charge. Williams also faces trial on four charges related to his alleged attempts to cover up the circumstances of the driver’s death. In January 2003, the Christofi’s family settled with Williams in a wrongful death lawsuit for $2.75 million. In 1992, Williams was accused of smashing a beer glass over a patron’s head at a Chicago bar. Two years later, he was accused of firing a semiautomatic weapon into the parking lot at the Meadowlands Sports Complex.

We know what your problem is Jayson, its the same one Bobby Brown, DMX, and a long list of others have…rocks. Get well.

    I hope he takes his treatment seriously and I feel the most empathy for his wife and kids family and for the family of that limo driver.

    OOH, LAWD! I hope they help him. He’s obviously tortured. That limo driver thing was a damned shame; this man has been violent for years, that didn’t just pop off.

    If he’s evaluated, I hope they can help.

    Did anyone know this little known fact that the character that is Norwood Young? is Jayson’s brother-in-law? I stillhaven’t figured that out but when I see Tanya I’m sure gonna ask!! Also I believe the roles were switched at birth because I believe his wife gets more action from the ladie than he does!!
