Clarence Williams has spent the better part of 13 years standing next to crime scene tape, riding in police cars or waking officials in the middle of night to gather information about breaking news in and around Washington as the night police reporter for The Washington Post.

Clarence has been pepper-sprayed at a World Bank-IMF protest, covered a crime scene of a D.C. Sniper victim, uncovered a deaf man wrongly jailed for 22 months in the District, and chased stories of fire, drug dealing and mayhem across the Washington region.

His reporting travels have carried from the Rugby World Cup in Sydney, Australia to the shooting of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords in Tuscon, Arizona, and nearly every difficult neighborhood in the city. When away from reporting, Clarence spends time doing damage to his own body during old boy rugby games or coaching youth in the sport he loves.
