(03/25/11) The Fond du Lac Police Department is very happy to report that Officer Ryan Williams will be discharged from Theda Clark Regional Medical Center sometime this afternoon. We have not received the official time at this point. Officer Williams has released the following statement:
“I would like to thank everyone for their constant support throughout this ordeal. I regret that I cannot speak to you in person at this time, but due to my ongoing medical issues, I was advised that the stress of a press conference would be unwise. I know you will respect my privacy and allow my quick recovery to continue. At this point, I have regained most of my motor skills. I believe that the continuous support I have received has led me to such a quick recovery. I would like to thank everyone for their support and am anxious to spend some time with my family. Thank you. Officer Ryan Williams, Badge #12.”
The Fond du Lac Police Department asks the media to please respect the privacy of Officer Williams and his family as they continue the long recovery process ahead of them. When the time is appropriate and his condition allows, the Police Department will help coordinate a press conference with Officer Williams.
A fund has been established at Fox Valley Savings Bank, 51 East 1st Street, Fond du Lac WI 54935 for the Williams’ family to help offset expenses related to the serious injuries he sustained and the long recovery process ahead of him.
