Carter-Williams paid Lord & Taylor a $500 fine to settle the dispute, the Post-Standard said, citing two sources.
Carter-Williams put a bathrobe and gloves into a backpack while in a fitting room, both sources said.
According to one of the sources, store security saw Carter-Williams go into a fitting room with merchandise and a backpack and then leave the fitting room without the merchandise visible. The activity was captured on the store’s security video, the source said.
Carter-Williams was apprehended by store security as he prepared to leave, according to the report. The action found life on Twitter as a rumor earlier this week. According to the Post-Standard story, Carter-Williams admitted his guilt in writing and then paid his fine with a credit card.
He avoided arrest and no charges were levied against him, according to the report.
As of now, Syracuse has not released a statement on the matter; Carter-Williams and Orange coach Jim Boeheim did not expound on the incident when confronted by local media earlier this week.
