Former NFL wide receiver Damian Williams turned himself in to authorities in Fayetteville, Arkansas, on Tuesday while facing second-degree battery charges.

Bobby Swofford of 5News in Arkansas provided Williams' mugshot:

According to Joshua Cole of 40/29 News, a warrant was issued for Williams' arrest in April stemming from an October 2017 allegation.

Per Cole, the accusation document on the Washington County Courts website regarding Williams read: "Recklessly causes physical injury to another person while operating or in actual physical control of a motor vehicle or motorboat if at the time the person is intoxicated."

The 29-year-old Williams is a native of Dallas who played college football at Arkansas in 2006 before transferring to USC and spending two seasons there.

Williams was selected by the Tennessee Titans with the No. 77 overall pick in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft.

He spent four seasons with the Titans before splitting the 2014 campaign between the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams.

In five NFL campaigns, Williams registered 107 receptions for 1,327 yards and five touchdowns.

He hasn't played since he was released by the Rams in August 2015.
