Denver Broncos All-Pro inside linebacker D.J. Williams was arrested during the early hours Friday morning for suspicion of driving under the influence. Williams’ Hummer was pulled over at 2:50 AM according to Channel 7 in Denver.
It is uncertain if Williams will be available for Sunday’s game vs. the Kansas City Chiefs. Williams leads the Broncos in tackles and sacks this season.
This is Williams’ second DUI since he was drafted with the 17th pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. Williams was arrested in 2005 for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. This being Williams’ second offense, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell could suspend the Broncos linebacker for three games similar to Chargers wide receiver Vincent Jackson for violating the personal conduct policy.
Goodell will probably wait until there is a verdict before suspending Williams. As for head coach Josh McDaniels, he is uncertain if Williams will play Sunday.
“Certainly disappointed and do not condone that type of behavior from any of our players, or anybody within our organization.” McDaniels said.
