Eric Baylor, 23, surrendered to authorities at the Hillsborough County Jail, according to the station. He is accused of stabbing the 30-year-old Williams, a wide receiver for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, in the thigh with a kitchen knife at the football player's Florida home on Sunday afternoon. A warrant was issued for his arrest soon after the incident.

According to WTSP, witnesses told deputies that the brothers were just joking around.

Williams is facing trespassing and criminal mischief charges stemming from an unrelated incident in December, and has had multiple domestic problems in the past. He was treated and released from the hospital following Sunday's altercation with Baylor.
