Documents: IA Car Salesman Assaulted Coworker

Documents: IA Car Salesman Assaulted Coworker
Ronald Jeffrey Williams


A former Sioux Falls car dealer, who now works for Billion Automotive in Iowa City, is facing sex abuse and kidnapping charges.

Ronald Jeffrey Williams, 52, who is commonly known as Jeff Williams, is accused of assaulting a coworker at an Iowa football game. He appeared in court on the charges Tuesday.

Investigators say while the University of Iowa football team was playing inside Kinnick Stadium on September 7, Williams was assaulting a coworker outside the stadium in the parking lot.

Court documents say Williams followed a female coworker into a porta potty near a tailgating area set up for Billion Automotive employees at the game.

Williams allegedly locked the door and tried to force the woman to perform oral sex. The woman refused several times according to a University of Iowa Police affadavit; that's when Williams proceeded to lift up the woman's shirt. One of the woman's friends was in a nearby porta potty and heard the commotion and asked what was happening and that's when Williams and the woman both walked out of the porta potty.

Williams told investigators that the woman actually asked him to kiss her first, but then he refused to consent to a DNA swab of his mouth. A search warrant was obtained to collect Williams' DNA because the investigating officer believes it will match DNA found on the alleged victim.

Williams used to own Williams Automotive on Louise Avenue in Sioux Falls. That business closed in 2010 and Williams moved to Iowa City.

Williams is out of jail after posting the $25,000 cash bond on Tuesday. KELOLAND News called Williams at his dealership office in Iowa City Wednesday but he did not return our call.
