Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams was arrested early this morning.

The Star-Telegram reports that police responded to a call of a vehicle accident at 4:45 a.m. near the Cowboys’ headquarters and found a 2017 Lamborghini had struck a light pole, and the driver had fled the scene.

Police ran the plate and found that the Lamborghini was registered to Williams. Police later located him riding an electric bicycle in a roadway, and when they stopped him they arrested him for public intoxication. The traffic accident is still being investigated and Williams has not been charged for that.

Williams is currently not practicing during the Cowboys’ offseason program as he recovers from a foot injury.

  1. Two separate violations, but suspect the DUI and leaving the scene is the one that gets him suspended.

  2. If he is indeed guilty, then he needs to be cut. You can’t fix stupid, and there are more than enough incidents on and off the field that would put Wulliam’s intelligence into question.

  3. Can he get a DUI if not at the scene? Maybe for the bike lol. Man there are some boneheads in the NFL….

  4. So, he smashes a Lamborghini into a light pole, flees, as if one one will find out, and goes home and grabs his electric bicycle. Where the hell was he going? Maybe he was trying to get out of bounds.

  5. Why is there always a light pole or telephone pole involved? How drunk can they really be? I mean poles in general are small targets. Why cant they run into buildings? Lakes? Or even into large trees? #PolesLivesMatterTo!

    See ya bro, you were not going to make the team regardless. Hope that you saved some coin and didnt spend it all on the car.

  6. With Dez and Witten leaving, this was finally T. Williams chance to step up, and he does this?

    Just act right and he likely had the #1 WR spot, too much to ask.

    Zeke may well set the record for carries in a season this year, Dak probably only throws 10-12 balls a game.

  7. The report leaves out the best part on how the cops were able to catch up with him:
    that “electric cycle” was an exercise bike.

  8. You can’t tell me that the Police weren’t laughing their assss off after the arrest.

  9. And they had to get rid of Dez too…if they had waited…Dez’s cap number would’ve been too much for them to resign and tag both Lawrence and Martin next year…and make no mistake… Martin us their top priority! They will let Dez, Lawrence or anyone go before they let Martin go…he’s a top 5 offensive linemen in the game…no matter the position!!! He’ll be a Probowler for pretty much the rest of his career…

  10. Yup, you just gotta have that Lamborghini and you just gotta be out driving around at 4:45 A.M.

    What the Hell is wrong with these people?

    Another fine, upstanding member of the NFL — the National Felons League.

  11. Might as well throw in theft of an electric bike. Highly doubtful that he just happened to have that in the Lambo.

  12. Be home by midnight, you’ll almost NEVER be intoxicated enough to get in trouble with the law.

  13. Dez looks like Mr Burns from the Simpsons right now tapping his fingers together saying “Excellent” !

  14. If he’s going to be an idiot in public, why not do it on a scooter ? Why draw such attention to yourself with a Lambo (like they’re not going to figure out who that belongs to) ?

    After exhibiting that level of stupidity, he will either be cut or will be joining Jerry Jones’ inner circle.

  15. “Police later located him riding an electric bicycle in a roadway, and when they stopped him they arrested him for public intoxication.” The fatal mistake, he was in the clear like Lance Briggs if he had just gone home locked his doors and turned the lights off until he sobered up.

    Which is still sad because if I’ve learned anything from these cases over the years it’s that running away from the scene immediately and affording the best attorneys is the best practice to save yourself.

  16. They have been looking for a good reason to cut him anyway.. especially with all the added WR this offseason

  17. The irony here is that the QB who is already just average, went from having one of the better O lines to having a sub par line, a receiving core slightly above average to one that is bottom half of the league. And he wants to be the best Dallas QB of all time.

    Well at least Jarry helped him with the line and receiving in the draft and free agency. Oh that’s right he didn’t land anybody of significance.

    Granted I’m an eagles fan and this amuses me but I remember the Leonard Tose era in Philly and it stunk. Just like it has for 20+ years in Dallas. Can’t one of his sons step up and tell him to back off?

  18. Been a cowboy fan 52 years and this current version from the coach all the way down is my least favorite group ever. Even jimmy johnson’s 1-15 team had a few likeable guys this team has less. A LOT of talk….a LOT

  19. It’s a cap hit if they cut him, plus they will also have to release his obvious genius, and ability to know situational football… Did McClay sign this obvious kindergartner to this contract?

  20. What’s wrong with having a wife, 2 kids, beautiful home and driving a Chevy Silverado. Hanging out at home enjoying all of that. Oops that’s me and I never been in trouble with the law. Sometimes us average guys have it lots better than these 25 year old millionaires

  21. I’ve never been a “star” and I’ve never had more money than I knew what to do with.
    And I’ve never really had a strange, public, professional high-wire act to closely follow, like “stay out of trouble Or Else” or anything like that.
    If drunk in public, All ya gotta do is Call a Cab or a friend!
    Did they simply Negate Common Sense in Dallas?
    At least with Dez, they had a babysitter with him something like 20 hours a day
    We should all hire ourselves out as Cowboys Babysitters–and just follow them around with mace and at least three fully-charged tasers for when things go sideways.
    Then load them up in a secured van and take them home to be released into their backyards.
    Only $150,000.00 a year to start, with a three-year contract and heavy incentives.
    We Cowboys fans are Really Tired of this sort of thing…

    You are entirely correct.
    There are no witnesses to the crash or to who was driving the car. That means the worst Terrance Williams could get would be a citation for leaving the scene of an accident, and they could charge him with operating an electric bicycle while under the influence.
    Even that wouldn’t be possible if he’d have just gone home and stayed there.
    If a prosecutor tries to push a DUI charge, or a leaving-the-scene charge, you can expect a “fall guy” to step forward and say he borrowed and was driving Williams’ car. That guy will claim he was sober and it was a simple accident. No witnesses could pin anything on him, and there is no blood alcohol level to test. At worst, he’d be charged with leaving the scene of accident. In exchange, he can expect a nice payday from Williams.
    Sadly, having enough money, the right lawyers and no conscience or character are often all that’s needed to make some people’s idiotic actions go away with little or no consequences.

  23. Eaglesmania LOL you calling Dak an average qb. Then what does that make Wentz? Below average lol. Run their stats all of them for the past two years and you will see that Dak is the far superior qb numbers don’t lie. And Wentz is not a super bowl winning qb Nick Foles is.

  24. Wow, does that make Cole Beasley the #1 receiver? Brice Butler the #2? Gonna be a long year in Dallas, not that Williams would have made any difference.

    Dak didn’t look good last season pal…..you better hope it was s speed bump

  26. Cut him. He crashed maybe 10 minutes away from the spot where Josh Brent killed Jerry Brown driving drunk.

  27. He had to swerve 8 times before he finally hit the pole….sounds like the same way he runs pass routes

  28. Hindsight being 20/20 and all this makes the decision not to take someone like Ridley or Moore at 19 look rather foolish, though JJ’s foolishness doesn’t surprise me anymore.

  29. He probably did it on purpose. I wouldn’t want to play on the same team as Dak Average and Zeke aka Ray Rice 2.0.

  30. .
    another cowboy receiver whose numbers were down from last year.
    obviously Dez’s fault.
    2 DUI’s
    he gunna claim his car was stolen too?

  31. Williams must have used his $5M signing bonus on his latest contract and bought the Lambo. If he’s not careful he’ll have to sell that and buy a Yugo to drive after he gets cut because he has undoubtedly already spent all his money. He has more money than sense but not for long. Soon enough he’ll be broke.

    However, the Cowboys would take a cap hit of $7.25M if they released him but they would save $2.5M in the cap this year. His $3.5M salary this year is guaranteed. I doubt they cut him but they will save some money when he’s suspended unless Jerruh wants to fight it.

  32. I suspect this was the last Lamborghini he will ever own/lease/rent. Next job……”fries with that?”

    Nothing good ever happens on an electric bicycle — any time of day or night.

  34. It was your fault Zeke (even though you were out of state)! You are immediately suspended for the first 14 games of the 2018 season! Your fault too, Randy Gregory, 2 years of suspension this time. The Commish!

  35. Who the hell leaves their Lambo unattended? I dont care if its dented and im drunk, im not leaving my 250000 car just chillin so anyone can do whatever to it.

  36. “Why is there always a light pole or telephone pole involved?”

    Probably because those objects have a tendency to jump out at the cars and drunk drivers hit them.though the article states he hit a light pole his lawyer is claiming he was no where near a light pole though he wont say exactly what jumped out in front of his clients car to be hit violently.stay tuned.

  37. Moma, don’t let your babies grow up to be Cowboys. They will beat their ol’ ladies and wreck their own trucks. Always needing lawyers and such…..

  38. As I Giants’ fan I hate the Cowboys, but give the guy a break. Yes, it’s extremely stupid to drive under the influence, but he’s lucky nobody was injured or killed. He’ll rightfully pay the consequences and hopefully can learn from this.

  39. Being a GM or owner of certain franchises has got to be nerve racking. Every night you go to be bed knowing if the phone rings after 10 pm and before 6am one of your idiots has done something idiotic

  40. Just something else to remember when these 1-percenters tell the rest of us we’re the problem.
