released from King County Jail following a dispute at a bar.

there, and my whole staff can be there, until we get done suing Seattle
for this $50 million that I want for crippling my reputation as a
father, and a black man, and as a taxpaying citizen, and as a person who
is not a convicted felon," he said.
Williams had been released
from jail early Monday after police said he argued with a patron at a
bar, menaced the manager with a pool cue and refused to leave World
Sports Grille on Sunday, reports AP. He was also accused of flicking a
cigarette into a woman's face through a car window and throwing a rock
at the vehicle.
Police said Williams struggled with officers who
arrested him and jailed him for investigation of assault, harassment and
obstruction. Williams also was involved in an altercation with three
fans Friday evening after they tried to take a photo with him. He said
they had forced their way into his dressing room.
