Terrance Williams told police Kendall Wright crashed his car

After Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams‘ Lamborghini was found crashed by the side of the road, police quickly found him and arrested him for public intoxication. But Williams was not arrested for the crash itself — which he blamed on Vikings receiver Kendall Wright.

Video of the arrest shows that when police questioned Williams about how his car crashed, he answered, “My friend was a f–king idiot. . . . He called me and said my car was f–ked up.”

Asked who the friend was, Williams answered, “Kendall Wright. . . . We went to Baylor together.”

Williams and Wright were teammates at Baylor from 2008 to 2011. Williams has played his entire NFL career for the Cowboys, while Wright signed with the Vikings this year after previously playing for the Titans and Bears.

Williams seemed to acknowledge he was in no condition to drive, and he insisted that he wasn’t the one who crashed the Lamborghini.

“That’s my $325,000 car that I paid for,” he said. “I know I can’t drive a car.”

Williams claimed that Wright called him and told him his Lamborghini was crashed, but when police asked Williams where his phone was, Williams said that it was in the car. When police asked Williams how his phone could be in the car when he had just said that Wright was in the car and called Williams to tell him about the crash, Williams said, “I’m not trying to lie to you. I swear to God I would not try to lie to you.”

What Williams told police contradicts the statement he released after he was arrested. Williams said nothing about Wright in his statement, and instead indicated that he had been driving, saying, “The driver in front of me slammed on his brakes and I turned to the left and hopped the curb to avoid hitting him. I got his insurance information and my neighbor picked me up when my car wouldn’t drive.”

TMZ has photos of the crash scene that also contradict Williams’ lawyer’s claim that “Terrance did not hit a light pole and there was no light pole even near the vehicle.” The crash scene photos show a downed light pole next to Williams’ car.

Video showed that the police officers who arrested Williams were professional throughout the incident, and Williams was cooperative.

  1. How much is an oil change for a Lamborghini??? $1000 plus I’d bet.

  2. Man this is good stuff. I hope it leads to his suspension/cut.

    It goes without saying that you should not draft players from Baylor.

  3. Yea. Wow. The cover up should’ve been easy but that was painful to read.

    He should be suspended just for how bad his excuse was.

    Are players at Baylor required to go to class or do they just major in football?

    Luckily for him, he probably doesn’t need to worry about that anymore.

  6. “I’m not trying to lie to you. I swear to God I would not try to lie to you.”
    Every person who is lying says this exactly same story. So in other words, youre lying.

  7. According to the TMZ report, the keys to the car were in Williams’ pocket.

  8. If you’re going to have a “fall guy”, you should get your story straight first before you throw them under the bus. The goal of having a scapegoat is to have them take the heat, not both of you. Next lie incoming, “I have 2 cell phones, I just forgot which one he called.” Then proceed to Tom Brady the one in your lambo. “I’m not going to lie to you” PFT readers, this story was funny before, now it’s hilarious.

  9. And somehow I’m sure this is Trump’s fault….

    Of course it isn’t Trump’s fault.

    Just because he lies like Trump, blames someone else for his actions, and then tries to escape responsibility for a wreck, I don’t see what you would make you think of Trump.

  10. Obviously did not listen well enough in Anthony’s Carter’s class on getting out of trouble.

  11. Trump’s America punishes players that kneel, but DWIs are fine! Probably won’t even get suspended. I don’t hear anyone screaming for a policy to ban degenerates from the NFL, just those that peacefully protest… what a crazy world we live in

  12. Surprised he didnt claim that the police made him wreck his car, falsely claimed they beat him, then chopped down the pole to set him up.

  13. My phone that he just called me on is in the car that’s crashed and I’m not in.


    That’s some drunken logic for you.

  14. “Video showed that the police officers who arrested Williams were professional throughout the incident, and Williams was cooperative”

    Take note Michael Bennett…

  15. Digging himself a deeper hole. Fess up, be contrite and you probably get a game. Doing this compounds your problem.

  16. For the life of me I don’t understand these guys. Millionaire celebrity athletes who refuse to get driven around in a badass limo. I understand you wanna show off your flashy car. But PICK YOUR SPOTS man….say like when you’re sober?

    And if I’m an agent of any of these guys that are complete fakes I’m making sure, maybe even in some “super secret contract” locked away, thst these flakes HAVE A FALL GUY.

    Some old friend or just any old jabroni who is willing to take a bullet, within reason. Kind of like this situation being a perfect example. Maybe hold the weed or take the DWI, I’m not talking man slaughter or sexual harassment. I guess kind of a shallow concept, but how do you not cover your ass with all those millions of dollars?

  17. Ive met Williams a few times and he was always nice and accommodating. I was hoping that the truth leaned more toward what his statement was, but it doesnt look that way. Most importantly the officer handled that situation really well.

  18. this guy just did the worst thing: snitch on a friend.

    pretty sure that don’t play very well in the locker room. especially another player who most surely has friends on the cowboys.

  19. I find it odd how we are supposed to believe anything these professional athletes say? When it comes time to man up for the bad things, they never do. As it has been said you get a measure of a man how he conducts himself when no one is watching.

    Apparently Mr. Williams is not much of a man at all.

    I know I would not allow just anybody to drive a car like that.

  20. Gosh that is one of the funniest stories I have ever read on PFT.

    Next Cowboys vs Vikings game should be a hoot. One or both of those guys is going to ask if they can play dback.

  21. Jerry – Bring in your fixer so that Terrance can get off. Would have been a lot less expensive if he’d if he had contacted earlier but Dallas Cowboys with Lamborghinis can afford it.

  22. See what happens when you are respectful to a police officer? They treat you with respect back! Learn that.

  23. Not only was Williams in no condition to drive, apparently he was in no condition to even tell a believable lie.

  24. My children used to make all sorts of excuses to try an avoid getting in trouble after they did something against the rules. The difference between them and Terrence is they did a better job of covering their tracks and making plausible excuses.

    Yea. Wow. The cover up should’ve been easy but that was painful to read.

    Nothing’s easy when you’re hammered out of your gourd, man. Can’t keep track of the lies. Don’t even know who you are at that point.

  26. Rule Number 1
    Do NOT drink and drive
    Rule Number 2
    Rule Number 3
    Do NOT forget rule number 1 and 2

  27. That guy was lit…..” I would never NOT lie to you guys ”
    Does he even know what he said…..I would never lie to you guys sounds better but to say I would never NOT lie……LOL

  28. I think the real story here is that the police were polite, not racist, and didn’t shoot him. That needs to be pointed out because some people think that happens all the time.

  29. Honestly….can we please cut the body catcher? It’s all mental with Terrance (Except for the body catches.)
    From bonehead plays on the field, to this fiasco off of it. He’s not worth it.

  30. “Did I say Kendall Wright?…er oh…I meant Kendall Gill…no Johnny Gill…I didn’t mean we went to Baylor….I meant it was Elgin Baylor….Yes, Elgin Baylor crashed my Lamborghini definately Elgin Baylor.”

  31. Cris Carter is conflicted – happy that Terence Williams used a fall guy, but the application was all messed up and that fall guy is on Carter’s old team.

  32. This story is ridiculous, but not in a funny way, in a pathetic way. This was supposed to be Terrence Williams’s year to shine. He’s a capable receiver, has made some clutch catches in his career but never has had a 1,000 yard season. With Bryant released and Witten retired–the two most prolific receivers on the team in terms of touchdowns, receptions and yards–Williams was the veteran among a squad of rookies and a few free agents. He was handed the opportunity to step up and claim the No. 1 receiver position.

    But he’s coming off of foot surgery and cannot participate in OTAs, because he’s on the injured reserve list, although he has been working out in the gym at the team facilities.

    Then he gets into a $325,000 high end sports car, drunk out of his mind, swerves off the road and crashes into a pole. He calls a friend to come pick him up and take him home, but leaves his cell phone in the car. He’s later arrested for drunkenly riding an electric bike.

    First it was, oh some driver in front of me slammed on his brakes and I had to swerve to avoid a collision, jumped over a curb and hit a pole. Now it’s I wasn’t driving–this is my stupid friend’s fault. I was home, getting drunk, and jumped on my electric bike to ride to the scene.

    You can’t make this stuff up. The difference between literature and fiction is that literature must be true to the human condition, whereas fiction merely has to be believable. This fiction isn’t believable; it may be true to the human condition, but it certainly won’t become a best seller.

    What kind of idiot attempts to drive a high end sports car after surgery for a broken foot? He can’t even run routes, much less handle traffic. What kind of imbecile would try to do so drunk?

    The Dallas Cowboys are going to totally suck this year, and I say that as a lifelong fan. Jerry and Stephen can talk all they want about a “Dak friendly” offense, but a quarterback, any quarterback, every quarterback is only as good as the team around him. Two free agents and a bunch of rookies, with the veteran under arrest and facing suspension, that’s not much of a receiving corps. How does that fit into Garrett’s pass-happy offensive scheme? It doesn’t. The remaining tight ends have a grand total of 9 catches in the NFL among them, and all of them were caught by one player, Swain, who definitely is not Witten.

    So, what this means in more run-pass option plays called by Linehan. That, inevitably, puts Prescott at greater risk of injury–all running quarterbacks suffer injuries–and Dallas has no credible backup.

    Nor does Dallas have a credible safety or secondary or pass rusher on the defensive line. It just doesn’t look good.

    Welcome to Jerry World.

    325,000 dollar car for a career no. 3. Seems like a good investment.


    That’s why so many NFL players live game check to game check, and file bankruptcy 2 to 3 years after retirement.

  34. Now that’s a stand up guy. Fits perfectly in the “ me mel” cowboy locker room. Would anyone want to be in a foxhole with elliott or this guy ?

  35. For the past 40 years or so I have never like the Cowboys or the Redskins. I am so happy they have the owners they do.

  36. now the lawyer is going to the head trauma card…not that the BAC had anything to do with it…
