APS said its police officers worked with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, which provided “extra security support during the search for and apprehension of Williams.”
A public defender listed in court records as representing Williams declined to comment. Thomas O’Connor, spokesman for Georgia Public Defender Council, also declined to comment in an email.
“Public defenders are tasked with ensuring that each client whose cause has been entrusted to them receives zealous, adequate, effective, timely, and ethical legal representation. The Atlanta Office’s obligations to its client preclude public/press statements at this time,” he wrote.
APS said Williams is being held in Fulton County Jail.
