Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was hospitalized after being stabbed in the thigh Sunday afternoon in his Tampa home, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Cristal Bermudez Nunez said.
Williams’ brother is suspected in the stabbing and is being sought by police, Nunez said. The Tampa Bay Times reported Williams was treated for a relatively minor laceration at St. Joseph’s Hospital and released.
According to the Times, the sheriff’s office issued an arrest warrant Sunday night for 23-year-old Eric Baylor on a charge of aggravated battery/domestic violence after deputies were called to Williams’ home in the Avila community north of Tampa.
“We are aware of the situation that occurred at the residence of Mike Williams and are working with him and the authorities to get additional information,” the Bucs said in a statement released Sunday. “While we have limited knowledge at this time, our primary concern is for the safety and well being of all involved. We will refrain from further comment until we can get a better understanding of the situation.”
