Celtics guard Terrence Williams has been arrested after he allegedly made threats with a gun during what is being called a domestic violence incident, police in Kent, Wa. announced Sunday.

According to the the Kent Reporter, police took Williams into custody after he allegedly waved a gun during an argument with the mother of his child.

From the Kent Reporter:

At about 1:55 p.m., officers were dispatched to meet the victim who resides in the downtown Kent area. The victim reported that the father of her 10-year-old son in common, identified as NBA basketball player Terrence D. Williams, arrived to her home for a scheduled visitation exchange of their son. She said during the exchange in the parking lot area an argument ensued. The victim reported that during the argument Williams brandished a firearm and made threats.

Police said they later located Williams and took him into custody.

Williams signed a multi-year deal with the Celtics in March that will carry him through the 2013-14 season. His salary for next season, however, is not yet guaranteed.

He averaged 4.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 24 appearances for the Celtics this season after spending the opening portion of the 2012-13 season playing for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in the Chinese Basketball Association. Williams signed a 10-day with the Celtics in February and managed to earn a spot on the roster -- and eventually in the team's playoff rotation -- as he added depth to the C's depleted back court.
