Donte' Williams Has Drug Case Dismissed

Junior center Donte' Williams was arrested back in May in Atlanta on a possession of marijuana charge but now the charge has reportedly been dismissed. After the arrest Williams was subjected to several drug tests and reportedly passed them all. According to head coach Mark Fox it was more about Williams putting himself with the wrong people than it was him actually doing anything wrong.

"Putting himself in a wrong place, wrong time, wrong people, I'll deal with all that," Fox said. "I won't deal with any of that until later.

Fox didn't rule out some sort of punishment for Williams which could include an early season suspension.

"I don't know. I think I'll weigh that out. I think the important thing for him is really when he's trying to get a job and he's 30 years old and people Google his name, I want the truth to be known."

Williams will accompany the team when it embarks on an exhibition trip to Italy on Friday.
