The younger brother of NFL star Mike Williams has turned himself in to authorities ... though Mike is now telling cops the whole thing was an accident and he "fell" on the knife his bro was holding.

Mike's brother, Eric Baylor, was taken into custody last night ... he's facing battery and domestic violence charges for allegedly stabbing the Tampa Bay Bucs receiver in the left thigh. 

But cops say ... despite multiple witnesses who say the two had been arguing before the stabbing, Mike is NOT blaming his brother. 

"[Mike's] account is that they were horsing around in the kitchen and he fell on the knife that his brother was holding," a rep for the Sheriff's Office says.

Suuuuuure. 

As for Williams, officials say his injuries are "non-life threatening" and he's been released from the hospital.

IF, AND I SAY IF HE WAS STABBED BY HIS BROTHER FOR "ANY REASON" AND HE DOESNT PRESS CHARGES, HE ISNT HELPING HIS BROTHER! PERIOD! WE AS BLACK AFRICANS LIVING IN AMERICA HAVE TO START HOLDING ONE ANOTHER ACCOUNTABLE FOR THERE WRONGS AND BE ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR OWN. WE HAVE TO STOP ALLOWING PEOPLE WHO DO WRONG TO US TO NOT PAY ANY PRICE BECAUSE IT LEADS TO THE SAME OR WORSE BEHAVIOR. BOTTOMLINE, CAIN KILL HIS OWN BROTHER ABEL AND THATS HAPPENED THROUGHOUT HISTORY AND WILL CONTINUE AS LONG AS JEALOUSY EXIST IN HUMANS. I DONT KNOW IF MIKE WAS WRONG OR HIS BROTHER BUT, I DO KNOW WHOEVER PULLED A KNIFE WAS WRONG TO HAVE A KNIFE AT ALL AND NO ACCIDENT WAS MADE IN HAVING THE KNIFE IN MIKES BROTHERS HANDS. LET HIM DO TIME, THATS HOW YOU SAVE HIM AND IF HE GETS WORSE AFTER JAIL, ITS HIS LIFE, NOT YOURS IF HE WANTS TO RUIN IT, ITS HIS DECISION. KEEP PLAYING FOOTBALL AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR KIDS(IF YOU HAVE ANY) AND YOURSELF AND IF LITTLE BROTHER DECIDES TO GROW UP AND STOP STABBING HIS BIG BRO, THEN HELP HIM AGAIN, FORGIVE HIM CAUSE HES BLOOD BUT, HE NEEDS TO BE PUNISHED JUST LIKE CHRIS BROWN IS LEARNING WHICH IM HAPPY FOR CHRIS CAUUSE HE WILL LEAVE JAIL BETTER BECAUSE HE SEES WHAT GOOD HE HAS IN HIS LIFE AND BEFORE HE TOOK IT FOR GRANTED AND FRIENDS THAT DONT CARE IF CHRIS FALLS, WELL THERE NOT REALLY FRIENDS, THERE ACTUALLY JEALOUS OF CHRUS BUT, HE CANT SEE IT, MAYBE BEING IN JAIL OPENED HIS EYES AND HE WILL GET FRIENDS MORE LIKE LEBRON JAMES' FRIENDS INSTEAD OF WANNA BE GANGSTERS, THOSE DUDES ARENT CALLING THEMSELVES GANGSTERS FOR NO REASON, WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME A GANGSTER CLAIMED HE/SHE DID ANY GOOD.
