At the beginning of the engineered riots over the death of George Floyd, rioters burned down the 3rd precinct in southern Minneapolis. Since then, police have been searching endlessly for the participants in the rioting. They have so far arrested at least nine other people in connection to the arson attack.
Williams first appeared in federal court on June 17. He is currently being held in Sherburne County Jail awaiting his detention hearing on June 19. (Related: Minnesota man charged with participating in the ARSON ATTACK on Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct.)
According to the federal criminal complaint filed against Williams on June 17, surveillance footage from the 3rd Precinct recorded a man wearing a mask, a baseball cap and a hooded sweatshirt near the entrance of the building on the evening of May 28, the night it was overrun and was subsequently burned down. The man was holding a Molotov cocktail.
Videos of Williams on his Instagram account showed that he was at the 3rd Precinct building on the night that it burned down. Videos on his TikTok account showed him standing in front of the burning building wearing the same clothing as the man in the surveillance footage. All these videos were gathered together as evidence that Williams was present and a participant in the rioting.
Investigators even found an online interview with Williams on an Instagram account. The interview, posted on June 14, showed Williams openly admitting to not only being present on the night the station burned down, but also to participating in the arson attack.
“I participated in the riots, of course, cause I'm with my people” said Williams in the interview. He argued that, because they were getting tear gassed by the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD), it was only natural that they would fight back by rioting.
Williams further explained that rioting was different from looting, and that rioting was a justified form of protest, while looting was not.
When the interviewer asked Williams if burning down buildings is part of rioting, Williams replied: “Yeah, definitely, that's part of rioting, it's mass destruction – that's what rioting is, it's mass destruction.”
Williams also justified the use of violence, stating that he believes that rioters need to “do whatever it takes” for their demands to be heard.

Williams, who has described himself as an activist, an actor, a semi-professional basketball player and a “social media influencer,” was in the process of touring the country with two other people – his “documentary film crew” – to join other demonstrations and riots over the death of George Floyd. He boasts having over 140,000 followers on his TikTok account.
Before he was arrested, he was in the process of generating funds for his “Black Lives Matter World Documentary” through a GoFundMe page, where he stated that the purpose of the documentary was to show the world “what our country is going through and how bad we need change in our justice system.” Williams' goal was to raise $3,000, with the money going toward travel, accommodation, food and filming expenses for him and his two film crew members.
Of the 10 people who have been arrested in connection to the arson attack on the 3rd Precinct, Williams is the second person who hails from central Minnesota to be arrested. One suspect hails from outside the state, and the rest are either from Minneapolis or from neighboring St. Paul.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is still searching for suspects who participated in the arson attacks in Minneapolis and St. Paul at the peak of the civil unrest.
