New Jersey Nets forward Sean Williams was released from the Douglas County jail Monday night after trashing a computer monitor and other electronics inside a Park Meadows Mall store earlier in the day, police said.

Lone Tree police were called to the AT&T Mobility store about 2 p.m. Williams was arguing with a clerk when he picked up the computer monitor and threw it, destroying a printer and other equipment in the process, police reported.

The damages were estimated at about $1,300.

Williams, 22, faces misdemeanor disorderly conduct and criminal mischief charges.

Nets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe told The Associated Press the team was aware of the incident and looking into it. Williams was not free from jail in time to play in Monday’s game against the Nuggets at the Pepsi Center.

Yet ANOTHER tantrum-throwing little boy who can’t grow up. What ever happened to athletes who serve as role models?

I agree with DT about this guy being a punk.But I disagree that just because someone collects a big paycheck he’s automatically supposed to become a role model.Being ‘nice’ has nothing to do with athleticism.

Sounds like he needs to remain in Denver, and join the program at “Jesus Saves” along with Brandon Marshall, Carmelo Anthony, et al . . .

Mr. Williams doesn’t have a whole lot of rope left in his NBA career. He’s already got some big, black smudges on his reputation.
