Ex-NBA Star Slams Into Tree, Arrested for DWI

1/5/2010 10:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jayson WilliamsFormer NBA star Jayson Williams was arrested on suspicion of DWI early this morning -- after his SUV struck a tree in Manhattan around 3:15 AM.

Williams, whose vehicle careened into a tree just off the 20th Street exit of FDR Drive, was in the passenger seat of his black Mercedes when cops arrived on scene -- but witnesses say he was driving and officers said no one else was in the car.

Jayson was taken to Bellevue Hospital with minor injuries.

You might remember Williams as the guy who accidentally killed his driver back in 2002 with a shotgun. The jury was deadlocked in 2004 on a reckless manslaughter charge and he is scheduled to be retried.

As others have noted, there aren't THAT many trees on the streets of Manhattan! It takes skill to hit one -- I'm surprised Williams had it that together...

that is a shame to hear that something like that can happen to the best of us. I really hope that those who seem to be making such a public image should try to be more careful and cautious when they do things in public because people are going to be so judgmental of them as well as their actions. www.newscontracts.com
