Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Out Mike Williams Sued By Insurance Company

Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wide Out Mike Williams Sued By Insurance Company

Dealt to his hometown Buffalo Bills on Friday for a 6th round pick in May’s NFL Draft, Mike Williams continues to be faced with legal trouble.

From being stabbed in the leg in a bout of horseplay with his brother which had him being investigated by police last month to now…….this.

Per Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times, Williams is being sued by the insurance company that paid for repairs to Mike’s rented summer home. The lawsuit which was filed last week in Tampa by United Property & Casualty Insurance Co. “seeks $54,453, its cost to repair the damage, plus interest, court costs, and other costs”.

The lawsuit alleges that on June 14, Williams negligently caused a fire while using the stove-top range at the home in a gated community in Lutz, FL. The fire summoned emergency personnel to the home and caused heat, smoke, and fire damage, per the lawsuit.


The irresponsible and immature activities of Williams inspired Tampa Bay Times columnist Daniel Ruth to write that Mike “could make the best use of a recently signed $40million contract by investing in a babysitter for himself and his easily aggrieved brother.”
