Former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL star Ricky Williams was arrested in Texas this week for outstanding traffic warrants, and while the arrest is no big deal, Ricky Williams’ smiling mugshot is going viral. It’s probably because Williams looks so much different than he did in his playing days, the 40-year-old Williams looks beefed up from his NFL career, and gone are the trademark dreadlocks of the pot loving running back. Williams is very shy and has social anxiety disorder, he is a medical marijuana advocate, and he once retired from the NFL to avoid failing a third drug test for marijuana. Williams is married to his longtime girlfriend turned wife Kristen Barnes, but they agreed on an “open marriage” in 2009, Williams has seven children with three different women.
