(April 5, 2019) Niquai Imyr Williams, 25, already faced charges of disorderly conduct and loud noise after being escorted out an Ocean City club shortly after midnight on March 31. But that was only the beginning of the Frederica, Delaware, resident’s problems that evening.
Williams now faces a second-degree assault charge, which carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and a $2,500 fine for spitting in a police officer’s face. The responding officer arrived on scene to find Williams being escorted out of the club by several employees.
According to the report, the officer attempted to assist a club employee in issuing a “trespassing warning and have him leave the property.” But that seemed to agitate Williams, who was shouting obscenities as the officer tried to place him under arrest.
A sheriff’s deputy assisting the responding officer identified himself to Williams, who then made a derogatory remark to the deputy and spit in his face in front of approximately 15 club employees and several patrons outside the exit to the building, according to the police report.
The officers then arrested Williams, who was released on his own recognizance later that day after waiving his right to an attorney during his initial court appearance. He faces trial May 1 at 9 a.m. in Worcester County District Court in Ocean City.
