'NFL pass rusher Mario Williams today
is donating 5 Dodge Chargers to the
Houston police dept's Traffic
Enforcement division. #HouNews

Good to know he still cares about the community.

Yep, thanks Mario. :clap:

Now the traffic cops have some firepower to catch up to you in your Lambo doing 180. :truck:

Yeah, because with all the crime problems Houston has, we need more traffic enforcement. :facepalm:

a lot less likely to have your license suspended if you buy the cops new cars.

Hahaha, I was thinking along the same line, too.

Does Mario still have a house here?

I'm guessing this is Mario's last F U to the city of Houston.

He donated five Camaros to HPD in 2011. Must be a hell of a tax write-off.

I remember reading that, and received a speeding ticket from a white Camaro with faded police lettering on it a couple months letter. 70 in a 60 zone on I-10.

Screw you, Mario.

I think Buffalo is about the same size as Pearland these days. :lol:

'eh, give or take 150,000 people. :rolleyes:

Pearland is just an incorporated suburb of Houston.

Pearland is just an incorporated suburb of Houston.

And Buffalo is just a suburb of Toronto, working on the incorporation thing. :D

lol! Yeah, got me there. I've been to Buffalo. I say we gift it to Canada.

Whatever the reason donating 5 cars to HPD ain't a bad thing. Rather nice gesture by Mario even if it is a tax write-off as Mario can easily donate the cars or money elsewhere.

Mario dates my neighbor. I think he must still live here in the offseason.

What did Canada do to deserve that?

Pearland is booming in comparison, me thinks!

Why is everybody still so snippy with Williams ? He got a chance to make a lot of money (again), and went with the deal in Buffalo. In the meantime he still apparently lives in Houston in the offseason and/or still has sentiments about the city and made a significant and very valuable contribution to that city.
Congrats Mario on being a good citizen - all Houstonians should be grateful for your generosity.

Kudos to Williams for this. He's not a bad guy so I have no issues with him moving on to Buffalo especially after that ridiculous contract they gave him. He probably still has a place here because...well....it's freaking Buffalo! He has a few charity organizations and was a giver to the community here so I will always prop that. It's the kind of stuff we don't always find in the news.

This is Mario's revenge, trying to get more of us arrested. :wadepalm:

Agree. As long as they give back something it's always good, whether it's for PR or not.

If Mario wouldn't have foot the bill for those patrol cars, sooner or later the tax payers of Houston would have been stuck with the bill. He didnt have to donate anything. And I'm pretty sure this won't be the last we hear of his donations. Just my :twocents:
