The owner of a nightclub where Washington Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams was assaulted Friday night has been charged in connection with the attack, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports.

According to the Star-Reporter's Michael Tsai, Michael Miske Jr., the owner of the city's M Nightlife, was arrested Saturday and faces second-degree assault charges after allegedly hitting Williams over the head, possibly with a champagne bottle.

Williams, the Redskins third-year lineman who was in Hawai'i to participate in his first Pro Bowl, did not play in the game due to his injuries. After the attack, several of his teammates, including tackle Jammal Brown, tweeted that Williams was the victim in the attack.

The Star-Advertiser says that Miske, who has a criminal background, had his bail set at $250,000.
