IN BRIEF : Warrant for Doug Williams’ Wife

From Times wire services

An arrest warrant has been issued for the wife of Washington Redskins star Doug Williams of Zachary after the quarterback accused her of cashing a $75,000 check and taking off with the money.

Lisa Kai Robinson Williams, 27, allegedly cashed a check issued to Doug Williams for advertisements in Ebony Magazine, according to the arrest warrant and an East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office spokesman.

Neither Williams nor his wife answered the telephone today at their home.

Williams accused his wife of forging his name to the check on May 16 at the Bank of Zachary and cashing it without his consent. The quarterback was working in Virginia when the check arrived in Zachary, according to the warrant.
