D.J. Williams arrested for DUI

A full 20 days after the last arrest of an NFL player or employee, it’s time to re-set the meter to zero.

Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams was arrested Friday for suspicion of DUI, according to 7News in Denver.

Per the report, Williams remained in custody as of 11:15 a.m. ET.

The Broncos gave no comment to 7News.

Denver hosts the Chiefs on Sunday.  It’s unknown whether Williams will be benched or otherwise punished by the team.

  1. DJ is hoping to spend the weekend in jail, rather than suffer another 40 point beatdown at home. Several other Broncos have asked if they can join him.

  2. Why don’t they hire some life coaches as well as strength and conditioning coaches? Seriously, why doesn’t each team have a few people to monitor and mentor players that might be at risk? The counter resets to 00 way to often.

  3. So how long and how many of these have to happen before the Raiders, one of the cleanest teams in the league, lose the reputaion that the brain dead have continued to stamp on them?

    I can’t remember the last police blotter on a Raider.

  4. not like dj was doing anything anyway, u want to trade someone mcdummy, trade dj. “but dj leads the team in tackles” yea, after the back has already gained 4 – 5 yards.

  5. …It’s unknown whether Williams will be benched or otherwise punished by the team.

    This brings up a point I hope someone can address; Pat McAfee, punter for the Colts, gets busted for PI. (Swimming in a nasty canal in Braod Ripple, in Indy) and sits out a game. Colts DT Fila Miola, gets busted with a DUI and doesn’t miss a game. Jets Braylon Edwards, no punishment as well, as an example.

    Shouldn’t there be more consistancy and shouldn’t the players union be filing some griviances because of the inconsistance?

  6. Arrested for DUI? On Friday morning? No wonder the Broncos are shat. I have often thought that, if we knew what pro football players did on their time off, it would be difficult to cheer for them. Drinking & driving on a weeknight, after thursday practice/before friday practice, with the bronco defense unable to stop anyone. Now we know why. That’s just kid’s stuff.

    He’s still there at 11:15am, which means he hasn’t called anybody to post bail for him. Probably too embarrassed. Unless…

    Now THAT is funny, andy!

    =================

    Is benching still considered “punishment” in Denver? I thought the punishment was running them out on the field to get their heads kicked in?

  8. I am still amazed at these DUI’s. I can understand when a carpenter gets a DUI. He can’t afford a taxi when he gets too drunk to drive and has no way to get his car back. But these NFLers have plenty of money to pay for a taxi and hire someone to pick up their car.

    Additionally, most teams have a “no questions” service that will drive a player and his car home and not reveal to anyone who it was.

    So these DUI’s are really, really stupid.

  9. If he’s a mediocre to borderline player, he’ll be benched.

    If he’s an integral part of their defense, and hard to replace, Denver will “let the legal process proceed”

  10. Absolutley no reason the douche bag players should be getting DUI’s. Get a clue “professional athletes”!!!!

  11. …It’s unknown whether Williams will be benched or otherwise punished by the team.

    I’ll bet anything he plays, McDaniels is as desperate as they come.

    Hey DJ: Nice goin, jackass.

  12. Any Raider fan that thinks they are “normal” is a joke. You have accrued 8 years of suckery. One DUI does not vindicate an AWFUL “franchise.”

    Fabian Washington? Put a sleeper hold on his wife/girlfriend, got traded. Cable got looked at, but never had to post bail.

    I think mrjspicoli was referring to Oakland’s reputation as a team full of thugs and documented criminals. Don’t feel bad, though. We don’t mind explaining things to you.
