Early Friday morning, Bucs receiver Mike Williams was arrested in Florida.  Williams, who was at the wheel of his black Escalade, was pulled over at about 2:30 AM under the suspicion of driving under the influence, as he was 12 mph over the speed limit and weaving in and out of traffic.

After being pulled over, Williams B.A.C. was tested and was below the state limit of 0.08.  Of the two tests Williams took, the highest level was .065.

Along with a test through the breathalyzer, Williams also submitted a urine sample.  The toxicology report from the urine could take four to six weeks, said sheriff's spokesman Larry McKinnon.

The Buccaneers have not made a formal statement about Williams' arrest, but he was released later on in the morning on $500 bail.

It is unclear whether the talented rookie will play this weekend. Expect more details as Sunday approaches.
