Witness: Williams Drove into Oncoming Traffic

1/7/2010 12:26 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jayson WilliamsJayson Williams drunkenly drove across four lanes of oncoming traffic before smashing his Mercedes into a tree earlier this week -- this according to a witness whose testimony is being used in court.

According to new court docs, cops are accusing the former NBA star of 2 counts of drunk driving for his Tuesday morning car crash -- which left Williams with a fractured neck.

The unnamed witness told cops he or she saw Williams get into his black 2007 Mercedes and operate his car "in an unsteady and abrupt manner, in that the vehicle crossed four lanes of oncoming traffic and crashed into a tree on the sidewalk."

According to the document, the officer who first responded to the crash scene noticed Williams was "bleeding from his face and the that [Williams] had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath."

Williams is set to be arraigned from his hospital bed later today.

DEAR-DEAR TMZ, HOW did that witness gather the EXACT information that Jayson Williams DRUNKENLY did anything. How did he perform that alcolhol test while Williams was avoiding oncoming traffic. BRILLIANT NEW IDEA.

I have turned onto a one way street against my direction and it frightened the H out of me. A tree would have been a relief to that oncoming traffic.

So it was determined later that Williams was imbibing. He should pay the penalty, yet HOW DID THAT WITNESS DETERMINE WILLIAMS WAS DRUNK?

That witness should be a billionaire as soon as he can patent that device he used to determine Williams drunk state while he was STILL DRIVING AND BEFORE THE VEHICLE CAME TO A STOP.
Maybe the Witness was "biblically correct" as that is one of TMZ's favorite atheistic put-downs.

DAMN!! Jayson is probably the sexiest, most self-destructive man to ever live! He acts like he has a death/suicide wish issue! Poor guy! I still love him though. I'd pack a weapon before doing him but he's certainly still "doable"!!

SOURCE: http://www.kmov.com/video 10-21-09: Now doesn't it matter that a 7 time DUI Convict was Released Without Restrictions????? "The appearance of impropriety in the prosecution of a DUI Case always leads to a DUI Tragedy" Demand the disbarment of the Releasor of a 7 time DUI Convict Without Restrictions.....Contact the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission and demand the disbarment of the Releasor st clair county states attorney robert haida.

Why hasn't TMZ removed Inbred Jed's #1 comment? Doesn't that idiot have a daughter or niece to molest or something? I know he has a copy of "Deliverance" he could watch on his oh-so modern VCR. Seriously, your trailer with the holes in the floor, cheese popcorn, Faygo sodas, cigarettes and the recliner you grabbed from the side of the road to watch your god, Dr. Phil, is calling you.

It seems like this dude just want to die. He family will get whatever left of his money and he doesnt have to go to jail. Williams let his ego drive his decions and someone died.

I still don't get how they can do arraignments or anything else from a hospital. I don't care if they are pleading not guilty. With medication or anything, you couldn't be withit enough to do a court hearing. Talk about walking on people rights!!!

For the people that say he is drinking and did this and want him put before the firing squad, just remember it could be you. "I don't drink" you say? Well it can be when you take that prescription and it reacts bad......so you are laying there in the hospital, sweating it in the first place, getting treatment, suppose to rest so you can get released and you have to go to court.

I wouldn't be surprised if these cases have to be dropped by the wayside because improper means.
