According to a police report obtained by the Morning News, Williams appeared to “have bloodshot and watery eyes and his speech was slurred.”
Williams is then heard in the video blaming former Baylor teammate and current Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Kendall Wright for crashing his car.
“Williams stated "his friend was an idiot and he was driving (his scooter) to see what happened to the vehicle." Williams told the officer he was at his home the "whole time" and Kendall Wright had taken the Lamborghini out at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday on a date. Williams said Wright left the crash scene in a yellow Camaro following the crash and went to a club. Williams said Wright called him at around 1:45 a.m. to let him know he had crashed the Lamborghini on Lebanon Road.”
The officer did not believe Williams’ story and took him into custody. TMZ reported Williams’ cellphone was inside the car and the key was in his pocket.
Williams issued a lengthy statement after the arrest Saturday saying he swerved to avoid crashing into another vehicle in front of him, and was headed back to the scene to pick up his car.
