According to court documents, on the evening of Dec. 20, 2023, a New York State Trooper pulled over Williams in Middletown and issued him traffic tickets. The following morning, a fire broke out at the home of the Trooper’s father in Warwick.

“Law enforcement officers, who are the backbone of the safety of our community, must be protected for doing the dangerous work that they do,” Hoovler said. “Our community will not allow such horrifying conduct as is alleged in this case to go unchecked.”

New York State Police Troop F Commander, Major Michael W. Sumnick shared similar sentiments, saying in part that Williams’ arrest “should send a clear message that law enforcement will stop at nothing to hold dangerous criminals who endanger the lives of others accountable for their actions. “We will not tolerate this type of reprehensible behavior in which a member of law enforcement was targeted for simply carrying out his duty.”

Attorney information for Williams was not immediately known.
