WILLIAMS BALKS AT NAKED WALK CHARGE

Dick Williams, who managed the Oakland Athletics to two World Series championships, was arrested on an indecent exposure charge while attending the World Series of Fantasy Baseball Camp.

Williams, 70, who now lives in Henderson, Nev., was accused of walking naked outside his Fort Myers hotel room in Southwest Florida the night of Jan. 17, according to a Lee County Sheriff's Office report.

A woman who worked next door to the hotel reported the incident.

At a Jan. 18 hearing, Williams pleaded no contest, and Judge Hugh Starnes withheld judgment, according to court records. Williams was released on time served.

"The case has been settled and dismissed. That is all I have to say," Williams said from home.

Williams managed the California team from 1971-73, winning the Series in 1972 and 1973. He also managed the Boston Red Sox to the World Series in 1967.
