Jauan Williams Wiki – Jauan Williams Bio
Jauan Williams was booked into the Leon County Jail on Wednesday on two battery complaints that he struck his girlfriend when he was playing for Florida State.
A native of Washington, D.C., Williams started eight games in 2018 for the Seminoles and the first two games of the 2019 campaign, but was eventually benched both seasons, according to Noles247. He hasn’t been with the team or on roster since early January.
Williams recorded a Pro Football Focus grade of 42.8 this season and a grade of 26.5 the previous year, writes Noles247 analyst Brendan Sonnone, two of the lowest scores among Power 5 offensive linemen.
Williams was a four-star recruit per the 247Sports Composite and was regarded for his athleticism, but a recurring shoulder injury played a role in limiting his development at FSU. He played a combined 388 snaps at FSU.
Jauan Williams Charge & Arrested
The two criminal complaints stem from incidents in 2018, according to a probable cause affidavit. The first happened that May in an argument over food.
The woman, who is from Tampa, told police that the 6-foot-7, 310-pound Williams flipped her food tray. Because the affidavit also mentions accusations of sexual harassment or violence, the Tampa Bay Times is not immediately naming the complainant.
When the woman went into Williams’ room, he “proceeded to flip the chair from underneath her and ‘choke’ her,” the affidavit said. He then yelled and spat at her. Williams prevented her from leaving by wrapping his arms around her arms, carrying him into the bedroom and dragging her across the floor.
When police arrived, the woman lied about what happened to protect Williams, she later told police. And according to text messages in the court records, she also said she hid marijuana.
The other incident happened a month later, according to the affidavit. She told police that she and Williams were getting ready to smoke at Williams’ home when he punched her in the face and “almost knocked her out.”
The woman went back to her residence. Williams unsuccessfully tried to get a key to her place from the front office, and a worker there saw him yelling and pulling his girlfriend away from the door.
Both cases were investigated at the time, but police could not determine whether a crime occurred.
In March 2019, she petitioned the court for an injunction for protection against domestic violence, citing the “countless scars” he left on her, damage to her property and verbal harassment. A month later, she withdrew her petition, according to court records. That’s around the time she called police again and said she wanted to move forward.
The woman said she received multiple threats from Williams. “Also, she has messages from suspect Williams’ teammates asking her to cease speaking with school officials/law enforcement because suspect Williams is going to lose his scholarship as a result.”
