NEW YORK, NY. (AP) - Police say New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams was arrested for criminal possession of a weapon when he attempted to board a plane at New York’s LaGuardia Airport.

Police say the first-round draft pick last season has a permit in his home state of Alabama for the handgun. It was not immediately known whether the gun was loaded.

Williams, 22, was a top defensive end for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
