Jonathan Williams, a former running back for the Arkansas Razorbacks, was charged with driving while intoxicated early Thursday by Fayetteville police.
According to the website of the Washington County jail, Williams was booked in at 3:21 a.m. on charges of driving while intoxicated and failing to consent to a breath test. He was released about two hours later.
According to his preliminary arrest report, Williams was stopped at the corner of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Stadium Drive on the southern edge of campus shortly before 2 a.m.
Police wrote that Williams's eyes were bloodshot and he had slurred speech, telling officers he had had one beer around 7 p.m. He later said the beer was a 40-ounce variety, the arresting officer wrote.
The officer wrote that Williams declined to submit to a breathalyzer based on previous advice from his agent.
After four years at Arkansas, Williams was selected by the Buffalo Bills in April in the 5th round of the NFL Draft.
