Detroit Lions’ Corey Williams Local DWI Charge “Taken Under Advisement”July 22nd, 2012 by Joe Burgess
On June 18, 2011, around 11:30 pm, the NFL star was pulled over in a traffic stop, west of Wilmar, by an Arkansas State Trooper, for crossing the center line. Williams was very polite with the officer, as he failed the field sobriety test at the scene, and was then arrested. William reportedly blew a .10 on the BAC test. .08 is the legal limit. He was charged, and soon released.
Williams attorney, Rickey Hicks (Little Rock) filed a motion to suppress the traffic stop and subsequent charges, in a motion to the court claiming that Williams was racially profiled, and did not cross the center line. His motion stated that Williams and all passengers in the vehicle were African-American.
Hicks also claimed that Williams “was driving a Ford F650, which is an unusually large Ford pick-up truck, with unusually large wheels and tires.”
District Judge Ken Harper took the case “under advisement” and is expected to rule within the next week.
Williams played college football for ASU and has relatives in Camden.
