Early Life

At some point before the start of the series, Will was arrested by Freeland PD for possession of drugs. It is unknown how long he was in prison, and according to LaLa, he was recently released.

Throughout the Series

Season 1

In The Resurrection, he was first shown to at Club 100 looking at Jennifer dance on the floor.

In LaWanda: The Book of Hope, he was captured by two 100 gang members. They took him to Lala whom murdered him by shootting him in the back of the head.[1]


Will was shown to be reckless and foolish. His incompetence lead to him being arrested , ultimately owing Lala money for lawyers and the drugs the police confiscated. When Lala suggested Will get Jennifer Pierce to work off his debts by working as a prostitute at the Seahourse Motel he cowardly agreed. His desperation to pay off his debts got to the point where he stalked Jennifer at high school ( despite the fact that the 100 had an unwritten agreement to stay away from Garfield High) with the intention of kidnapping her and selling her as a prositute at the Seahorse Motel. When Anissa Pierce intervened and beat him Will went as far as trying pull a gun on her and shoot her in broad daylight ( he was only stopped by Jefferson Pierce). Later he kidnapped both Anissa and Jennifer both to pay his dept and the embarrassment of being humiliated by Anissa. Ultimately proving to be more trouble than he was worth he was promptly executed by Lala.
