ESPN Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams was arrested by Frisco, Texas, police early Saturday morning for public intoxication, a Class C misdemeanor. The police found Williams’ 2017 blue Lamborghini abandoned after it hit a light pole in the area of Frisco Green Avenue and Lebanon Road, not far from the Cowboys’ practice facility, at 4:45 a.m. CT. After police determined that the vehicle was registered to Williams, the receiver was found near his home riding an electric bicycle and was arrested. Williams was released from the Frisco Detention Center on a $369 bond. The police are continuing to investigate Williams for fleeing the scene of an accident, but no charges have been filed. Because the damage to the light pole was more than $200, Williams could be charged for striking a structure, fixture or highway landscaping, an offense that is a Class B misdemeanor. In a statement released by his attorney, Williams said an officer he had met previously arrested him without performing a sobriety test. Williams said he was returning to the scene on a scooter to meet a tow truck driver. The attorney, Chip Lewis, disputed the police account of Williams’ vehicle hitting a light pole. “Terrance did not hit a light pole and there was no light pole even near the vehicle,” Lewis said. “Secondly, his arrest was wholly unrelated to the traffic accident.” Williams said he veered into the center median to avoid a collision when a man driving a vehicle in front of him hit his brakes. The two exchanged insurance information and a neighbor drove Williams home, where the receiver said he called for a tow truck. “I have always been an upstanding citizen and handled the situation the best way I know how,” Williams said. “I apologize if I should have handled it a little bit differently.”
The arrest of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrence Williams seems bizarre, and the details do not seem to add up, when you read into the reports. Police found a 2017 Lamborghini owned by Terrence Williams crashed into a light pole and abandoned, when cops investigated they found Williams intoxicated while riding an electric bicycle near his home, and he was arrested for public intoxication. Meanwhile, Williams’ attorney states that he never crashed the Lamborghini into a light pole, he just swerved into the center median and left the luxury car abandoned on the median after exchanging information with another driver. It seems that the story Williams and his attorney are going with is, Williams was not drunk when he abandoned the Lamborghini on the median, but then went home and got drunk before police arrived. I guess if I just crashed a 2017 Lamborghini I would need a drink too, however, is anyone buying Williams was sober when he abandoned his Lamborghini on the median?
