Kasen Williams Cited for Misdemeanor

Kasen Williams - Otto Greule Jr

Washington WR Kasen Williams got into a bit of trouble in Chelan County at the end of May, being cited for a misdemeanor charge by the WSP and paying a fine.

Word leaked today that Jr. WR Kasen Williams got himself into a bit of trouble recently. From Adam Jude's Twitter:

Jude has a complete post on the matter on his blog. The post says court records indicate he submitted to a breath test on the scene, which suggests the incident was alcohol related rather than marijuana, though there are reports out there suggesting that marijuana use was also suspected.

Sark & the UW released this statement on the matter:

We are aware of an incident involving Kasen Williams in Chelan County on May 26. As a matter of policy, any disciplinary measures taken as a result of this incident will remain internal to the team.

While it is mildly comforting that Kasen was not ultimately cited for a DUI, it is still unwelcome news for a team still waiting for resolution on the DUI case of star TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Given the high-profiles of both ASJ & Kasen and the recent spate of awful DUI-related incidents in the state and the subsequent efforts in the State Legislature to "get tougher" on DUI, there will undoubtedly be some pointed questions asked of Sark about the culture of the team and whether there is a problem that needs to be addressed.

I think all of us that have had the college experience know that these types of incidents are not uncommon among students, so I hesitate to suggest that there's a problem within the program above the normal student baseline of poor judgment. That said, football players are high profile, and some will make the argument that their stature requires a greater degree of self control given their status as representatives of the school.
