Lieutenant William Williams suffered a fatal heart attack shortly after struggling with a juvenile offender.

He was transported to the juvenile back to the sheriff's office to release custody of the boy to his parents when he suddenly collapsed. His patrol car then left the roadway and became stuck against a utility pole on Route 26 in Bryant Pond. The juvenile was able to free himself from the vehicle and flagged down passersby, who began CPR and alerted authorities.

Lieutenant Williams was transported to Stephens Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Lieutenant Williams had served with the Oxford County Sheriff's Office for 18 years.

It's nice to know that, though he apparently caused your heart attack, the juvenile was decent enough to get you help. It truly is sad however that it had to come to that. Wherever that juvenile is now, I hope he/she lived a good life to make up for past mistakes.

Rest in Peace, Brother and God Bless you.
