The Hunterdon County Democrat in New Jersey reported Monday that Williams is currently serving a one-year term at the Eric M. Taylor Center in East Elmhurst for driving while intoxicated. His projected release date is April 15.

Williams had already served an 18-month prison term in New Jersey for aggravated assault. The 44-year-old drove his SUV into a tree in Manhattan a week after accepting a plea deal stemming from the shotgun death of a limo driver in his New Jersey mansion in 2002.

The former New Jersey Net was a top player with a six-year, $86 million contract before a leg injury forced him to retire in 2000.
