Buffalo Bills rookie running back Jonathan Williams was arrested July 14 in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and charged with driving while intoxicated.

According to ArkansasMatters.com, a police report stated that an officer believed Williams to be intoxicated based on a field sobriety test, although the former Arkansas Razorbacks standout declined to submit to a breathalyzer.

“We are aware of the report and are in the process of gathering information,” the Bills said in a statement following the arrest to Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk. “We have notified the league office of the report under the rules of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.”

The Bills selected Williams in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL draft with the No. 156 overall pick.

The Dallas native spent four years at Arkansas but sat out the entire 2015 season with a foot injury.

He rushed for a career-best 1,190 yards as a junior in 2014 and scored 14 total touchdowns as one of the SEC's top running backs.

Williams is expected to battle with Mike Gillislee for a roster spot in 2016 behind starter LeSean McCoy and backup Karlos Williams.

The rookie is the latest Bills running back to make negative headlines off the field after McCoy was involved in a Philadelphia nightclub fight in February. McCoy did not face charges for the incident, however, and he won't be disciplined by the NFL, according to ESPN.com.

Williams was released from custody around 6:30 a.m. ET July 14, per ArkansasMatters.com
