An Eastern Washington player has been indefinitely suspended after he allegedly drove a truck into an apartment complex.

According to police, Keenan Williams is accused of driving his truck into a first-floor apartment and causing approximately $100,000 worth of damage to the building. He’s charged with a hit-and-run.

After hitting the apartment complex, he then allegedly fled. The incident happened in the evening of March 9. Williams turned himself into police the next day. The man in the apartment that got hit said he heard screeching tires just before the truck burst into his residence and Williams allegedly exclaimed that he was going to lose his scholarship after the incident happened.

From the Spokesman-Review:

[Cameron] Kubrock told police he “heard screeching tires and turned to look just as a large, dark-colored Ford truck smashed through my window and wall a foot from where I was.”

Kubrock was showered with glass from the window but was not hurt.

The police report does not indicate whether anyone else was in the truck while Williams was at the wheel. However, Kubrock and two other residents stated to police that several other men were gathered around the truck after it struck the building.

EWU said it’s aware of the incident and is will help cooperate with the police investigation.

Williams was fourth on the team in tackles with 55 and had four sacks in 2017 as the FCS school went 7-4.
