Details of the alleged crime have been released. The alleged victim is 26-year-old Treshonda Williams, the mother of Carr’s infant daughter.

According to The Sun:

“Ms. Williams advised Mr. Carr that she does not wish to be with him anymore, and she told Mr. Carr that the relationship was over,” an officer wrote in charging documents.

Williams said that Carr asked to speak with her outside the school, and she went outside. An argument erupted, and she said Carr grabbed her by her shirt, and threw her to the ground. He then is accused of kicking her in the back, and punching her in the head and face before fleeing in his vehicle, according to records.”

    So many issues with this young man. He is not the best student to say the least(held back at least once), he had a baby and just a couple weeks later left for a school in NJ only to return a week or two before the end of the school year, pretty convenient how the HS in NJ was able to jump his grades that fast from failing to passing with flying colors. He will be 19 soon. The kid needs some real guidance and structure in his life or he is just going to be another kid from Baltimore with potential who people used to talk about.

      Makes you wonder, who the heck is advising these kids? They all (not just this guy) seem to surround themselves with ‘yes’ people, people who’ll tell them nothing but exactly what they want to hear, how great they are, how much money they’ll make in the pros. Sorry, but I have absolutely no sympathy for guys like this. Knock up some skirt before you leave high school? Whatever you get, Carr, you’ll have “earned”.

        Maybe you were never 18 yrs old…what teenager doesnt want everyone to tell them that theyre the best thing ever? This guy is still a teenager, hes not the first and he wont be the last high schooler to get someone pregnant…lets just hope there is someone/anyone with his best interest at heart that can get him back on the right track, after this incident, before his dream slips away.

    He deserves his day in court and the entire story to be told, but if he is found to be guilty, Patterson High needs to not allow him on the basketball team. The kid has a huge following in Baltimore, alot of young kids look up to him, and this is what he does as a soon to be HS senior, not good at all. Basketball takes a back seat to this incident. And Seton Hall, no way, that is not the kid you bring in to represent a Big East school. He has been given a great opportunity by so many to use his basketball talents to provide a life for himself and his child, and he acts like a common uneducated above the law thug. Very disappointing that everyone around him has let him down.Everyone makes mistakes and hopefully he can rebound and come out the other side a more mature man.
