Judge: Stay Away From Mike!March 25th, 2014
The judge handling the case of Eric Baylor, the brother of Bucs wide receiver Mike Williams, may have done the Bucs the biggest favor since former Bucs rock star general manager cut Myron Lewis.
Baylor, who is alleged to have gone all Ginsu and knifed Williams Sunday, turned himself into authorities last night and had to stand in front of a judge this morning for a bail hearing.
Baylor, who is charged with aggravated battery domestic violence, a felony, got more good news when the judge slapped him with a $1,000 bond (which is virtually nothing). More importantly, which is common when someone is accused of attacking another person, Baylor was ordered to stay away from Williams, per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times.
@gregauman: Judge has set bond at $1,000 and ordered Eric Baylor to have no contact with his brother, Bucs WR Mike Williams, @TimesDan reports in Tampa.
This is the best news Williams has had since he moved to the house he got knifed in. From what Joe has heard, one problem associated with Williams and why fans have turned on him as if he was Richard Speck can be linked to family members. And then a family member — Baylor, allegedly — decides to jam a kitchen blade into Williams’ thigh.
The best thing for Williams, and the Bucs, has been the court order for Baylor to stay away.
