UMass Minutemen wide receiver Jalen Williams was arrested early Sunday morning after allegedly breaking into a car and was subsequently booked on charges of “breaking and entering during the nighttime to commit a felony” as well as larceny over $250. Matt Vauhtor of the Daily Hampshire Gazette reported Williams’ arrest.
A senior from Atlanta, Williams told reporters that he had been suspended from the team as a result, but the university has just said that it is “aware of the incident and reviewing it internally.”
The police report offered a brief summary of what happened.
Police said they allegedly broke into a vehicle at the 1040 North Pleasant St. complex. The incident remains under investigation as police search for additional suspects.
Williams appeared in 10 games for the Minutemen last season and caught 20 passes for 307 yards and four touchdowns. He has not played at all this season due to a quad injury. Needless to say, this does not look good for Williams nor his future, unless he is of course 100 percent cleared.
