"As we said from the outset, this matter has been resolved with no criminal charges," attorney Alex Spiro said in a statement. "This case was nothing more than a technical issue with the storing of a firearm, which is why the government gave Mr. Williams nothing more than a ticket."
Williams pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct, was fined $250 by the court and forfeited his firearm, according to the Queens District Attorney's Office.
Williams, 22, drafted third overall in 2019, was carrying a Glock 19 handgun in a carry-on bag when he was arrested March 5 at the Delta check-in counter at LaGuardia. At the time, he volunteered that a gun was in his possession.
The gun was licensed in Alabama, Williams' home state, but not in New York, according to police. He was charged with Class E and D felonies for criminal possession of a firearm. Williams was required to appear Monday in Queens Criminal Court, a court spokesperson said.
