The former Arkansas player, who was drafted this year, was pulled over Thursday morning in Fayetteville, Arkansas, police said. In a statement, the Bills said they are “gathering information.”
Another Buffalo Bills running back has found himself in trouble with the law, and this time, it’s the newest member of their corps. According to KNWA in Arkansas, rookie fifth-round selection Jonathan Williams was arrested on Thursday morning and charged with DWI.
Reportedly, police responded to a call about an intoxicated driver and found Williams. According to the police report, the officer saw that Williams had “red watery eyes and slurred speech,” and upon administering field sobriety tests they believed Williams was swaying enough to be intoxicated.
A hearing has been scheduled for 10:30 AM on Thursday. This is the first known run-up against the law for Williams, who was considered one of the leaders for the Arkansas Razorbacks football team.
The Bills have released a statement on the situation:
“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.”
After Williams’ initial court date Thursday, he’ll have to be back in court on August 15thduring Bills training camp.
