FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Buffalo Bills running back Jonathan Williams has been arrested in northwest Arkansas on a misdemeanor charge of driving while intoxicated.
Fayetteville police say an officer pulled over the former Razorback early Thursday after seeing his vehicle weave within its lane. A police report says Williams told the officer that he had one beer but he refused to take a blood-alcohol test, citing previous advice from his agent. Williams was booked in the Washington County jail and released two hours later.
Williams was a fifth-round pick this year for the Bills after sitting out his senior season at Arkansas with a torn ligament in his foot. At Arkansas, Williams had 2,321 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns and added 345 yards receiving and six touchdowns in 36 career games.
The Buffalo Bills issued this statement:
“We are aware of the report and are in the process of gathering information. We have notified the league office of the report under the rules of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.”
