Drug charges dropped against former Pitt football player
Drug charges were dropped against former Pitt football player Eric Williams on Thursday when he appeared in Pittsburgh Municipal Court showing proof of community service.
Williams, who was charged with use and possession of drug paraphernalia, failed to appear at a hearing Wednesday but showed up Thursday, satisfying the court, said Mike Manko, spokesman for the Allegheny County District Attorney's office.
Williams was one of three Pitt players charged during an incident April 26 in Oakland.
