Eric Baylor SurrendersMarch 25th, 2014
The brother of Bucs wide receiver Mike Williams and the same man accused of knifing Williams Sunday afternoon has turned himself in.
Eric Baylor, who has been a fugitive from the law since the incident happened, walked into the Orient Road jail in Tampa and surrendered, documents Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.
Baylor faces a felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon/domestic violence and was held overnight with no bond. He turned himself to police at 10 p.m. and was booked at 11:40, listing himself at 6 feet and 280 pounds. Williams had been treated and released from St. Joseph’s Hospital with what was said to be a relatively minor laceration.
Police spent hours at Williams’ home in Avila on Sunday night, and interviews with several witnesses and evidence collected contradicted Williams’ version of the incident, which had suggested the stabbing was accidental.
Baylor, who had a felony warrant of aggravated assault charge issued against him, was alleged to have stabbed Williams with a kitchen knife. Williams claimed it was an accident while horsing around. The cops, based on evidence and sworn statements, believe that is horses(p)it.
Joe’s going to guess the cops will get to the bottom of the story shortly.
