HOUSTON — NFL wide receiver Reggie Williams, a former Washington Husky, must serve two years of probation for cocaine possession in a case in which a Taser was used to subdue him.
Williams on Monday pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance.
A judge sentenced the 25-year-old unrestricted free agent to deferred adjudication and fined him $200.
A district attorney’s office spokeswoman, Donna Hawkins, told The Associated Press that Williams will face random drug testing in Harris County. Hawkins said Williams will not have a felony conviction on his record if he successfully completes probation.
