Charged with: Fifth-degree domestic assault
Status of case: Pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct, earning one year of probation and a $1,000 fine. NFL never suspended Williams.
A long-time member of the Minnesota Vikings, defensive tackle Kevin Williams is a six-time Pro Bowler with a checkered history in the league. Along with his role in 2005's infamous “Love Boat” scandal, Williams also faced charges for masking steroid use in 2008. However, before either of these incidents came to light, Williams was charged with fifth-degree domestic assault after his wife called 911 early in the morning of August 28, 2005. When officers came to Williams' house, his wife had two injuries to her left arm as well as blood on her T-shirt, and she claimed Williams assaulted her for not wearing her wedding ring. Williams pleaded guilty in court.
