Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Tampa after a spokeswoman with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office says Williams was stabbed in the thigh at his home.

Cristal Bermudez Nunez said it happened Sunday afternoon. When deputies arrived, they reportedly found Williams suffering from a stab wound to his left thigh. He was taken to the hospital, where he was treated and released.

Detectives say Williams’ brother, Eric Baylor, stabbed him with a kitchen knife. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

Williams has been in trouble with the law recently. He faces trespassing and criminal mischief charges after an incident in December and has had multiple domestic problems, including damaging neighbor’s property.

His off-the-field issues have caught the attention of the Buccaneers’ new head coach, Lovie Smith.

“There’s a pattern here and it’s disturbing. No one is bigger than this football team,” Smith said in February. “He has to understand that. Have I been disappointed in Mike Williams? Of course,” Smith added. “There’s a standard. We’re just not going to put up with it, no matter who it is.

“You have to be good on the field and off the field. Simple as that. And if you’re not doing what you need to do one or the other, you have problems and that’s where Mike has to take care of a few things.”
