TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The New York Times is reporting a Florida State football player was ticketed, but not charged with a crime after briefly leaving the scene of a late night car accident.
The New York Times also raised questions about whether starting cornerback P.J. Williams received favorable treatment from the Tallahassee Police Department. Williams was driving the car, which also had two other passengers, including another FSU starter.
School President John Thrasher denounced the article as speculative. Williams is expected to play Saturday when the No. 2 Seminoles take on the Miami Hurricanes.
The accident occurred at around 2:30 in the morning on Oct. 5. Both vehicles were damaged, but no one was hurt. The police report states that Williams returned to the scene of the accident about 20 minutes later.
