Trent Williams was tasered in Pro Bowl elimination fight
Washington Redskins offensive lineman Trent Williams won’t forget his first Pro Bowl experience.
After being selected to his first trip to Hawaii, word surfaced on Friday that Williams would not be able to play in the game after he was involved in an unspecified altercation.
What was unspecified has become specified and the details are not pretty.
Adam Schefter broke it on his Twitter account that Williams was hit over the head with a champagne bottle and tasered by his assailant.
My question: What kind of guy goes after someone as big as Trent Williams, cracks a champagne bottle on his head and tasers him? Brave dude.

Captain Andrew Lum of the Office of the Chief for the Honolulu Police Department released a statement on the altercation via NFL.com
“At 1:30 a.m. this morning, Honolulu Police Department (HPD) officers responded to a report of a large affray at a night club in central Honolulu. Three males were injured during the affray. Two were treated and released from the hospital, and the third male declined treatment. One male was arrested for Assault in the 3rd Degree and additional arrests are likely. The HPD has opened an Assault 2nd and four Assault 3rd investigations. The investigation into these offenses continue.”
By all accounts Williams is being painted as the victim in this affair and required stitches in the aftermath of the club brawl.
Williams will be on the sidelines for and get paid for the Pro Bowl game.
To support what Shefter stated, I want to see the guys that decided that they wanted to take on all 6’5 325 lbs of Trent Williams.
