Bills running back Jonathan Williams was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated early this morning in Arkansas.
According to Little Rock television station KATV, Williams was taken into custody and booked around 3:20 a.m. by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.
Williams played his college football at Arkansas and was drafted by the Bills in the fifth round this year.
The 5-foot-11, 220-pound Williams had a very good junior season in 2014, carrying 211 times for 1,190 yards and 12 touchdowns. In the summer of 2015 he suffered a foot injury and missed his entire senior season.
Williams is joining a crowded backfield in Buffalo, with LeSean McCoy as the incumbent starter and youngsters Karlos Williams and Mike Gillislee sure to get plenty of time. This arrest won’t do Williams any favors in his quest to earn playing time with the Bills.
