"I haven't, by choice, I haven't looked at the picture," Williams said Tuesday. "I did have a conversation this morning with Mr. Crowell. He wanted to personally apologize to myself and law enforcement here in northeast Ohio."

"You know, the young man, in the heat of the moment, made a bad choice, made a bad decision and he's apologized for that."
