The Plano Police Department has issued a misdemeanor warrant for Cowboys defensive end Sam Williams for reckless driving, according to multiple reports.

Williams has been contacted to turn himself in, and the judge will set his bond at arraignment.

Police initially said after Williams’ Dec. 22 car crash that a black Infiniti had failed to yield to Williams while trying to make a left turn. Williams’ 2021 Corvette struck the other car. Williams and the 71-year-old driver of the Infiniti were transported to the hospital.

Officers since have determined the speed at which Williams was traveling at the time of the collision, prompting the warrant.

Williams was diagnosed with a concussion and a neck strain in the post-practice wreck, forcing him to miss the Christmas Eve game against the Eagles.

The Cowboys drafted Williams in the second round of the 2022 draft, and he finished his rookie season with 22 tackles and four sacks.

  1. NFLPA – please include driver education in all rookie & UDFA contracts henceforth. See Williams, see Garrett etc. Seriously though, too many have passed or been injured in vehicular incidents.

  2. Apparently nobody can remember more than 10 minutes ago. The list of NFL players (professional athletes in general) involved in traffic related tragedies is very long and all very avoidable.

    In what universe would driver education solve anything? These guys already had to demonstrate a knowledge of driver education and traffic safety in order to get a license.
    No, the real culprits here are immaturity and selfish entitlement, not ignorance of the law or a lack of training.
    These are young rich men who have been coddled and told they’re special all their lives. They lack maturity and accountability, and they think they’re indestructable. In their minds the rules don’t apply to them. Bad things happen only to other people, right up to the point it happens to them and then its usually somebody’s else’s fault.
    Most of the guys involved in these reckless traffic incidents won’t pay any more attention to driver education than they do to the numerous behavior seminars, financial responsibility classes, or other guidance offered by the NFLPA or the league.
