    Bucs WR Mike Williams arrested for DUI

    Tampa’s Mike Williams arrested for DUI
    Posted by Mike Florio on November 19, 2010, 7:35 AM EST

    Receiver Mike Williams has overcome plenty of self-imposed adversity to become one of the best rookies of the 2010 class. He now has a little more self-imposed adversity to overcome.

    A tipster has advised us — and we’ve confirmed via the website of the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office — that Williams was arrested today for DUI.

    According to the available information, Williams’ breath testing registered a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.065 and 0.061 percent. Urine testing also is being conducted. He remains in custody as of this posting.

    (That said, there’s a chance, albeit remote, that it’s a different Mike Williams — who was born on the exact same day, May 18, 1987.)

    Several weeks ago, Bucs tight end Jerramy Stevens was busted on marijuana charges, and he promptly was cut. Williams likely won’t suffer the same fate, especially if the final test results remain under 0.08 percent, the legal limit.

    Williams quit the Syracuse football team, but his raw talent propelled him into round four of the 2010 draft. He has started all nine games of his rookie year, racking up 40 catches for 627 yards and five touchdowns.

    UPDATE: Williams has since been released from custody.

    To our ClanRam board certified attorneys... How can you be arrested for DUI if you blow under the legal limit? That's like getting a speeding ticket for doing 63 in a 65 zone.

    I'm not a lawyer, and would defer to the opinion of one, but if Williams was driving recklessly, it may not have been necessarily for him to have a BAC of 0.08% in order to be charged.

    I am no expert but I think thats the difference between DWI and DUI. It said he wasnt over the legal limit but he if he was driving wrecklessly they can charge him with a DUI. So DWI I think would be over the legal limit and DUI under the limit but failed some of the soberity test or drove wrecklessly.

    Re: Bucs WR Mike Williams arrested for DUI

    According to an NFL Fanhouse write-up about Williams...

    Friday morning, Williams was pulled over and passed a Breathalyzer test, which found he was not over the legal limit for alcohol. He was given a field sobriety test and the deputy claimed Williams failed that test and was too impaired to drive.

    Williams, the report alleges, was driving 57 miles per hour in a 45-miles per hour zone and weaving in and out of traffic.
