The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

FAYET­TEVILLE, ARK. — Buf­falo Bills run­ning back Jonathan Wil­liams has been ar­rested in north­west Ar­kan­sas on a mis­de­meanour charge of driv­ing while in­tox­i­cated.

Fayet­teville po­lice say an of­fi­cer pulled over the for­mer Ra­zor­back early Thurs­day af­ter see­ing his ve­hi­cle weave within its lane.

A po­lice re­port says Wil­liams told the of­fi­cer that he had one beer but he re­fused to take a blood-al­co­hol test, cit­ing pre­vi­ous ad­vice from his agent. Wil­liams was booked in the Wash­ing­ton County jail and re­leased two hours later.

Wil­liams was a fifth-round pick this year for the Bills af­ter sit­ting out his se­nior sea­son at Ar­kan­sas with a torn lig­a­ment in his foot. At Ar­kan­sas, Wil­liams had 2,321 yards rush­ing and 16 touch­downs and added 345 yards re­ceiv­ing and six touch­downs in 36 ca­reer games.
