Jets ‘ Quinnen Williams arrested for carrying a gun at New York Airport

On Thursday, authorities arrested Quinnen Williams, New York Jets defensive lineman, for possessing a gun at LaGuardia Airport. The reports have been confirmed by one of the Port Authority officials.

According to the news sources, officials arrested Williams, 22, at 9:15 p.m., when he was about to catch a plane out of town. Officials arrested Williams for criminal possession of a weapon.

One of the spokespersons said that Williams had a permit for the weapon, which was ranked No.3 overall in 2019 by the Jets, but was licensed at Alabama. In compliance with New York law, if somebody has a license from New York, it is usually only legal to carry a concealed weapon.

Our news sources have reported that there is still no information regarding whether the New York Jets defensive lineman was trying to take the gun on the plane and that authorities have accused him of the same.

The file photo, which you can see above, is of Nov. 3, 2019, and in this photo, you can see Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is sacked by New York Jets defensive tackle Quinnen Williams. The picture was taken during the first half of an NFL football game that took place in Miami Gardens.

Following authorities accused Williams of possessing a gun at LaGuardia Airport, there are still no requests or comments from the side of Williams’ agent, Nicole Lynn, or Jets regarding the concern.

Williams’ agent, Nicole Lynn, is an agent for Young Money APAA Sports. Lynn, on Thursday, tweeted that “more than half of the players represented by the agency were heading to Mexico for an event together.”

Following the tweet, there are still no reports on whether Williams is also heading towards Mexico in order to participate in the event organized in Mexico.
