(Note to Uber: Tallahassee apparently an underserved market.)
According to Safid Deen and Karl Etters of the Tallahassee Democrat, the NFL Draft prospect was arrested after making an illegal left turn out of a McDonald’s parking lot in a rental car with a suspended license, and failing roadside sobriety tests.
The report said Williams swerved over the center line several times, and nearly hit a curb before he was stopped around 3 a.m.
Officers noted he had red and watery eyes, slurred his words and swayed and had to brace himself against a car door. He told them he was a local bar called Recess. He refused breath tests, however.
Of course, the fact he told the cops he was a Seminoles football player wasn’t the worst idea. He was given a traffic ticket for a hit-and-run incident last fall, and the local cops haven’t exactly draped themselves in glory with their handling of other FSU football players.
But the biggest hit might come to Williams’ draft stock, as he was considered a possible first-round pick before this arrest.
