Keenan Williams, an Eastern Washington football player faces hit-and-run charges after crashing his truck into a Cheney apartment building, causing significant damage, then fleeing the scene.
Keenan Williams, 20, is under indefinite suspension from the team following the incident on the night of March 9 at the Eagle Point Apartments on Betz Road.
According to witnesses cited in a Cheney police report, Williams drove his Ford F-250 pickup truck into Building 17 at Eagle Point.
Because no one was injured, Williams faces misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run to unattended property.
At 8 a.m. the next day, Williams, accompanied by his father, turned himself in to police.
Officials at Greystar Property Management of Spokane, which owns Eagle Point, did not respond to messages regarding the extent of the damage, or whether the company plans to sue Williams for the cost of repairs.
At the scene, Cheney fire and police officials estimated that repairs to the building would cost at least $100,000.
Williams, who is from Cheney, is scheduled for a court appearance next week.
Eastern coach Aaron Best has suspended Williams, a 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive end who’s going into his senior year. Williams started all 11 games last year for the Eagles and led all linemen with 55 tackles.
“We are aware of the incident and will cooperate fully with the investigation,” Best said in a statement released Tuesday.
“But until that is complete and the case is reviewed in accordance with EWU’s student conduct policies, Keenan has been suspended indefinitely from all team activities,” Best said.
