Williams then yelled ‘I’m going to kill you’ at his roommate and threw a hammer at her before she was able to escape, according to an arrest affidavit obtained by Law & Crime.

The woman, who has not been identified, was able to flee to the home of a neighbor for assistance. When the neighbor arrived, he revealed that Williams had threatened to kill him and admitted to beating the raccoon. It is unknown whether the animal survived.
