Cops Tasered ex-NBA star Jayson Williams Monday after the troubled hoopster went nuts in his luxury Manhattan hotel room, police sources said.
Authorities rushed the popular New Jersey Nets center, who beat the rap trial for shooting his chauffeur several years ago, to St. Vincent’s Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation, sources said.
“I always expected that he would do something violent again if he wasn’t stopped,” said Andrea Adams, sister of slain limo driver Costas (Gus) Christofi. “He’s very careless. He’s violent and he doesn’t care.”
Police were called to the Hilton Embassy Suites in Battery Park City at 4 a.m., after hotel officials reported a disturbance in Williams’ 15th-floor suite, the sources said.
Williams, 41, trashed his room, forcing Emergency Service Unit officers to subdue the former All-Star with a Taser gun, sources said.
