Latest On Terrance Williams Arrest

Terrance Williams was arrested early Saturday morning after a car accident. The Cowboys wide receiver has issued a response, attempting to explain why these events occurred.

I am grateful that no one was injured in the accident,” Williams said in a statement (via Pro Football Talk). “The driver in front of me slammed on his brakes, and I turned to the left and hopped the curb to avoid hitting him. I got his insurance information and my neighbor picked me up when my car wouldn’t drive. I live right near where the accident occurred, so my neighbor dropped me off and I called a tow truck and took the scooter from my house to go meet the tow truck driver. The police officer, who I have met in the past in the neighborhood, saw me on the scooter and arrested me without performing any sobriety tests.

I have always been an upstanding citizen and handled the situation the best way I know how. I apologize if I should have handled it a little bit differently.”

The 28-year-old wide receiver was arrested for leaving the scene of an accident and for public intoxication. Williams also disputes that his Lamborghini struck a light pole. Williams’ lawyer said his client did not crash into a light pole, nor was there one nearby the accident. He added that this accident did not have anything to do with Williams’ arrest.

Williams could face NFL discipline regarding the public intoxication charge.

        I’m sorry officer that I happen to be black! I’m sorry officer that I make more money than you! I’m sorry officer for being more successful than you!

        Wake up dude! Cops in this country are way out of control, have been for a long time. Maybe we should not be giving every racist jackass bully a badge and gun. Maybe we should also hold them accountable when they grossly abuse their power and authority.

          Nothing unifies us more than making everything about race.

          It’s amazing that you are that ignorant to think that all cops are racist. You break the law you pay the price black or white. This is all getting very annoying. Who are the real racists here?

      As a Police officer, it’s a shame to see someone generalize all police officers this way. He broke the law, because he’s held accountable he’s a racist? Give it a rest. I don’t care what color you are I would have treated the situation the same way.

          I’m just curious as we have only heard one side, if those blaming the cop will apologize when dashcam or bodycam come out telling another story.

          Also yes he did not give a sobriety test, but if you refuse to take one then they have to make their own assessment and that is usually going to be to take you in, for your and the public’s safety.

          Let’s not pass judgement on the officer or Terrance until all facts are present.

      While we don’t know the actual details of the incident, that is an extremely shortsighted take. Williams provided a lot of very specific details, so its pretty unlikely he is embellishing here. We shall see.

        Are you kidding? That statement was “crafted” by a seasoned attorney. Does anyone believe that he didnt know that you cant leave the scene of an accident ?

    Somewhere deep below the earths surface Roger is scheming a way to make this worse than Zeke’s dragged out process.

    This excuse makes no sense.

    1) Why would he get the other drivers insurance? He’s entirely at fault and the other driver wasn’t involved in any part of the “accident” that I’m aware of.
    2) I’m supposed to believe he left his Lamborghini there so he could go home and call a tow truck? What, he only has a landline phone?
    3) His neighbor doesn’t have a phone (of any kind) either so he had to drive him back to his house?
    4) He only has the one car so he came back with a scooter?

      1) He or the driver may not have ascertained the status of the vehicle. Exchanging insurance info may have been just a CYA formality.
      2 & 3) His cell phone might have died, but not calling from his neighbor’s house is odd. Why did he need to go back to his house? Could be paperwork.
      4) The idea that, “It’s right over yonder, I’ll just grab the scooter.” isn’t preposterous. More convenient.

      These things are not impossible. Just improbable.

        1) There is no CYA about it. The driver in front wasn’t impacted at all by this so there is no reason for him to exchange insurance info. And suddenly there are now two parties who didn’t think to call the police or both had dead phone???
        2 & 3) The ol’ my cell phone was dead and the.charger in my Lamborghini wasn’t working— I’m assuming a Lamborghini has a port.
        4) It is preposterous. Why would it be more convenient? Is he just gonna throw it in the trunk of the Lamborghini and drive it back home?

        All of those events together indicate, beyond any reasonable doubt, that he’s lying and covering something up. I don’t know what— could be drinking, could be drugs, could be an Eric Hernandez type fling. There is certainly something more to this story.

    Only 1 reason someone is out at 3am and driving. And it’s not because they were coming home from the library.

    He story is about as stupid as he is for driving intoxicated and almost killing people.

      I go out for a drive at 3:00am sometimes because the roads are quiet. Or I need to run to 7-11. Sometimes I go to a pizzeria that’s open til 4:00am.

      Driving while intoxicated is inexcusable. But, don’t bash the night owls. And I would totally go to the library if it was open that late!

    Let me get this straight, Williams was unable to veer out of bounds to stop the clock, yet he had no problem veering of the road and into a pole.
