The bike flipped and Williams was thrown about 25 feet into a ditch at Carreker Trailer Park. He was shaken but not seriously injured. Williams has done three stints in prison including one for possession of meth and one for sale of meth. The sale case ended with a conviction on Nov. 28, 2013. He was sentenced to seven years but was released after serving just over eight months. ”We keep sending him to prison and they keep letting him out,” one officer at the crash scene lamented.
