A charge of driving under the influence can hold many consequences for an individual. For Terrell Williams, not only does he have to worry about his legal problems, but he must also think about his future football playing career.
Terrell Williams, who is 21 years-old, was arrested and charged early Sunday morning, November 4, 2012, by Fayetteville police for allegedly driving under the influence. Williams is a senior at the University of Arkansas and plays linebacker for the Razorbacks” football team. He was booked in the Washington County Detention Center at 4:07 a.m. and was released after posting bond at 10:30 Sunday morning.
Williams originally did not have a starting role at the beginning of the NCAA football season. But after season-ending injuries to the starting linebackers, he earned a starting role. But now, Williams may have jeopardized his football playing career as he has been suspended indefinitely by Arkansas football head coach John L. Smith.
Smith released a statement saying, “I am very disappointed in the decisions made by Terrell Williams. He did not represent himself or the University of Arkansas in a manner we expect. We have high expectations for the actions of everyone in our program on and off the field, and our student athletes will be held accountable.”
Williams’ court date is set for December 14, 2012.
