Police say ex-Sixer Jayson Williams is suicidal

Former New Jersey Nets star and ex-Sixer Jayson Williams was stunned with a Taser in a New York City hotel room by police after reports he was suicidal and violent.

Police said Williams was taken to an area for a psychiatric evaluation after they responded to a call that Williams was suicidal at a hotel in downtown Manhattan at around 4 a.m. Monday.

When they arrived, Williams was intoxicated and agitated in the room, and there were empty bottles of prescription pills strewn around the room.

Emergency Services Unit officers stunned Williams with a Taser, handcuffed him and transported him to a hospital.

Williams played nine seasons in the NBA before retiring in 2000. A tremendous rebounder, Williams is bet known for his problems off the court and was convicted in 2004 of trying to cover up the shooting death of his driver.
