D.J. Williams, the Denver Broncos linebacker, arrested for DUI

The Associated Press reports that D.J. Williams, the Denver Broncos linebacker, is scheduled to appear in court in January for a misdemeanor charge of DUI or driving under the influence of alcohol and failure to turn his headlights on while driving. This second DUI arrest occurred hours before Williams was scheduled to appear at the Broncos’ training camp. Williams was scheduled to appear in a Denver County Court House Thursday morning for his motions hearing, but according to his defense attorney, Harvey A. Steinberg, Williams was unable to attend because he had been injured during last Saturday’s Broncos’ win over the Seattle Seahawks. The court rescheduled the motion hearing for November 17, 2011, and the DUI trial has been scheduled for January 17, 2010. Williams was the Bronco’s leading tackler in 2010 but after his November 12 DUI arrest the Broncos stripped him of his captain responsibilities and he now faces a potential multiple-game suspension from the National Football League. This is William’s second DUI arrest in his last seven years of play with the Denver Broncos.
