Bucs receiver Mike Williams, who missed the final 10 games of last season with a hamstring injury, now finds himself facing off-field problems as well, with an arraignment in court later this month on misdemeanor charges of criminal mischief and trespassing from an unspecified December incident.

Williams, 26, is due in court Feb. 24, according to the Hillsborough County clerk's office. Williams could not immediately be reached for comment. The charges were first reported by Bay News 9 on Friday.

"We have spoken with Mike Williams and the local authorities regarding the charges that have been filed against him," the Bucs said in a statement issued by director of communications Nelson Luis. "All of our players are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that reflects the high character and moral responsibility that we demand as representatives of the Buccaneers organization."
