DENVER -- Call7 Investigators have confirmed that Denver Bronco DJ Williams was picked up by Denver police Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

DJ Genos Williams was driving a Hummer when he was pulled over at 2:50 a.m. at Broadway and 9th Avenue.

Williams was arrested at the scene, Call7 Investigator Tony Kovaleski said.

The case has been turned over to the Denver district attorney's office, for consideration of charges.

7NEWS has confirmed that a man by the name of DJ Williams is currently in a Denver detox facility.

It's unclear how his arrest will impact Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

A Denver Broncos spokesman said he has no comment at this time.

Horrible decision by DJ, reflects poorly on him. The suspension puts his team in a hole, but his actions put people's life at risk.

This is very sad that a "Team Leader" who was highly praised by mCd in a presser a couple weeks ago is out getting liquored up and driving. At least it wasn't the night before, he will likely play Sunday but get suspended for 2-4 when we need him the most.

Very sad, I wonder if this was brought on by stress/tenor/palor in the meeting/practices at Dove Valley or if he is just a lush who went on a bender.

BTW was he pulled over leaving Landry's in the Tech Center?

In September of 2005 Williams was arrested in Douglas County for driving under the influence, according to court records. In the 2005 case, Williams pleaded guilty to driving under the influence with ability impaired. He paid at least $740 in fines and court costs, according to court records, and was ordered to perform 24 hours of community service.

There are probably thousands of fans that would wait for him outside the club and give him a ride for free, just to say they did it.

Not to mention, personal drivers are not expensive when you make what these guys make.

It's insane. It's got to be some kind of ego/pride thing that they want to drive their own cars.

McDaniels not sure if DJ Williams will play Sunday

<SCRIPT type=text/javascript src="http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/connect.php/js/FB.Share"></SCRIPT><SCRIPT type=text/javascript src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js"></SCRIPT>


Broncos captain and leading tackler D.J. Williams has not yet spoken to coach Josh McDaniels in part because the inside linebacker has yet to appear at the team’s facitlity by 10 a.m.

Williams was arrested in downtown Denver on suspicion of DUI at 2:50 this morning. It’s Williams’ second DUI arrest in five years which means he’s subject to league suspension for violating its personal conduct policy.

McDaniels said he does not know if Williams will play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs until he learns more about the situation.

“”This is going to involve more people than just us,” McDaniels said. “”But we’re going to try to do what’s in the best interest of our organization.”

McDaniels added: “”Certainly disappointed and do not condone that type of behaviour from any of our players, or anybody within our organization.”<!--more--><!-- Arkayne Cache: Yes -->

Williams' first DUI occurred at about 3 a.m. on Sept. 23, 2005, the Friday morning before the Broncos were to play the Kansas City Chiefs on "Monday Night Football." Williams left a birthday party and was charged with driving under the influence.

I never said it was mCd's fault. You have never had a friend or family member with a drinking problem who didn't turn to the bottle to escape their problems? Anyway if the Tweets are true it is now sounding like he has a bigger problem he needs help shaking.

It was random Internets Speculation but I can't imagine that the locker room is upbeat with everything that has happened this year. Med pointed out all the stresses these guys go through on a daily basis. It was not a reach to speculate stress to trigger him to tie one on the night before a practice. We saw what an injury did to Kenny Mckinley's psyche.

I just hope this guy gets the help he needs quickly. He is young and has his whole life in front of him.

I never said it was mCd's fault. You have never had a friend or family member with a drinking problem who didn't turn to the bottle to escape their problems? Anyway if the Tweets are true it is now sounding like he has a bigger problem he needs help shaking.

It was random Internets Speculation but I can't imagine that the locker room is upbeat with everything that has happened this year. Med pointed out all the stresses these guys go through on a daily basis. It was not a reach to speculate stress to trigger him to tie one on the night before a practice. We saw what an injury did to Kenny Mckinley's psyche.

I just hope this guy gets the help he needs quickly. He is young and has his whole life in front of him.


He wont have a choice. Depending on his BAC he will have Jail time (mandetory), Lose his drivers licence (Mandetory), Dui education (mandetory if he ever want a license again) and DUI therapy (24-43 weeks depending on BAC level), not counting fines (court imposed), Community service (court imposed) and a Alcohol testing thingy in his vehicle for a year (min) in order to reinstate his license.

So he'll get to think about his mistake for a long time.

I know this isn't popular, but Williams just hasn't been that impact a player I had hoped he would be during his career. He leads the team in tackles, which is great, but what impact does he really make in games? I can't really remember too many games in his career where he really stood out and was making key plays to help win games. The team is better with him, but he isn't the impact type player the team needs IMO.

Or he'll spend some of his millions and get Hal Haddon in Denver as his attorney. That would buy him a nice slap on the wrist if it doesn't get thrown out. Hal was on Kobe's defense team in Vail.

He was at the nuggets game with a bunch of other players, they went out to a club and he made a horrible decision... I've seen the tweets, but I don't know if its any of our business what personal stuff he has going on. And to blame McD and the state of the franchise on his stupid decision is asinine

I agree, I shouldn't have speculated, but I never called out any one person as a cause either. Anyway at the time of my 1st post we had no info and this is a place where we do a lot of speculating so I speculated.

Like I said. There's no helping stupid. If he really has major personal issues and/or a drinking problem, fine.

Drunk driving isn't the problem that he needs help with and when you made your first post there was no indication that there was anything going on other than a guy deciding he would rather drive home drunk than grab a ride from someone sober.

That's why the law was re-written July 1st 2010 to take away the choice the judges were able to make as to the minimum sentence requirements.

The only way he gets "off" is if there is a problem with the arrest or the police reports.

Like what exactly? I'd like to hear this.

Team captains are supposed to lead by example. This shows how poor the Broncos leadership structure is.

The good news is DJ plays to soft for a 3-4 anyways. The bad news is he is the only linebacker capable of guarding a TE. Is Woodyard healthy?

But when your team captain gets arrested it does tell you the team isn't focused on football.

I doubt it has anything to do with Chiefs. If this is his 2nd time getting caught chances are he drives drunk quite a bit. No one gets busted the only 2 times you did it. I think they say you get away with it about 100 times for every time you get caught. So more then likely DJ drives drunk quite a bit.

More then likely, since he has 2 weeks of the yr he plays KC, and he's drinking and driving often, the fact got popped b4 KC games is just a coincidence.

Now DJ is a an avg football players with below average common sense. Bummer!!!

Right but if your captains are partying and driving drunk, firing him after the fact doesn't change the fact he wasn't being a good leader. When team playing poorly, and then your team leader gets a dui, I think it is relevant to say poor leadership may have hurt the team.

Ray Ray was in a limo with someone who stabbed someone. Not the same type of circumstance really. Also wasn't it offseason?

Your wrong, someone is trying to say it is mCd's fault but it is not us.

I don't think the guy should be cut, Lenoard Little actually killed people twice and still played.

I think anyone who drinks and then gets behind the wheel of a car is just as guilty as those who actually hit or kill someone. It is almost worse if they get away with it because then they think they can do it again. Repeat offenders should lose their license but not their jobs.

BTW sorry for your loss, it is sad that an organization like MADD has to exist, people either should know when to stop or if they can't get a ride or better yet get liquored up at home.

my parents lost a few very close friends when they were young, i grew up constantly hearing how bad it was, in grade 9 i signed a contract with my mother, that no matter when where or why i wouldnt think twice i would call her for a ride rather than drive drunk or let somebody else drive drunk, i used that alot, she even had to come to buffalo to pick me and my friends up once, if i can find away home with my limited resources than this prick should be able to with all the cash hes got.

If the Broncos can get Dareus the big DT/DE from Alabama I would pounce. But if not then maybe try and move down. I love the ND tight end Rudolph, the De Hayward from Ohio State, the penn state C wiesnewksi who has football in his blood, Cameron Jordan DE Calif...

if we could get dareus though that would be huge. We will have to keep losing though and be in top 4-5 picks.

Obviously the TE would be a luxury only if we could trade down and get 2 high picks for one. He is going to be a stud though.

Joe Mays will step up and bust ass just like he did for the Bison.

OK, so I hope.

Truth of the matter is, the Chiefs probably run for 200+ again.

Ok...so I just got home, but Raj texted and called me about this in the AM. Very bad news. I wonder if the 2005 thing will be held against him since it was 5 years ago and there has been nothing since. Still, he should know better and just call a cab or something, or just don't be out that late, whether they all hung out after the Nuggets game or not. Just a dumb decision. He needs to know better than that. I'm not going to read through the whole thread...does anyone know what is his status for the game on Sunday?

Thanks.

You're still my boy DJ, but you have to be smarter than that...it puts us in a bad spot, even though WW is coming back this weak. Not good.

Unfortunately for him 5 years spread won't matter. They will hit him with the 2 year law and the league will suspend him as well.

Draft Greg Jones baby! Real deal baby. He the boss baby.

Yep - prob too early for us to take him in top 10 o so, and likely won't be there early in 2nd. Maybe pull off the Thomas/Tebow move again?

My only prayer right now is that the Patriots would be interested in getting a premium player (if we continue to do bad) and would shovel some of their pick load our way so we could move down. That way we could still nab one of the great DL prospects coming out and attempt possibly get Jones.

I really like Von Miller too, but he's an OLB. I know we have Dumervil and Ayers, but another pass rushing OLB wouldn't be bad either.

Sturdivant from the Heels would be another good ILB prospect for us to look at too. He isn't as athletic as Jones, but he is incredibly cerebral. Could be a great fit for us IMHO.

Those guys and Cameron Jordan are some of my favorite prospects.

We should have moved DJ last off-season. Huge contract, and despite playing fairly well this year... isn't a true ILB.

lindsay jones reported there is no statute of limitations between DUI arrests, on his 2nd one he will get reviewed under NFL substance abuse policy as a repeat offender.

awhile ago, DJ posted something like "for all those who dont like my partying, know i give my all every sunday"

he talks about going out all the time on twitter.

Yea, to be fair... I've mentioned moving him long before this, and it's well-documented that I've had issues with him in the middle. I didn't like the contract extension when we did it, and I've never thought he was a true ILB.

He's a WOLB, chaser who would be great in his natural position. He suffices on the inside, mostly because he's versatile and has experience.

But, this is far from the first time I've mentioned moving him. Of course, it's too late, now.

Not really. Do it enough and you will get into some real trouble. Either kill yourself, someone else, or just get busted so many times you do real time for it.

I guess if all you care about is the Denver Broncos, and not your community, then you are right to feel that way.

What a bunch of crap. It has nothing to do with being better then anyone else...or high and mighty as you put it.

It has to do with just wanting people to be safe. Americans shouldn't have to worry if some drunk SOB is going to kill them on the road.

As a fan I want players who don't get suspended, who learn from mistakes, who are winners.

Ever since HS ended DJ stopped being a winner. Maybe that's when he started drinking.

He's probably an alcoholic. Also you probably drink and drive a lot considering your response to this issue.

Wise up punk.

It's been really up and down with DJ... at times people love him at other times people say he's not a true ILB. No one really ever hates him though.

I think the general consensus was that he isn't a true ILB... but imagine if McDaniels did move DJ Williams... after Marshall, Cutler, Hillis, Scheffler, etc.

I personally think he has enough talent to play ILB. He isn't poor, he just needs someone next to him that is BETTER than him for him to reach his max potential at ILB.

The NFL might take it into consideration a little bit when determining the penalty, but it wouldn't count as games served by the NFL.

DENVER -- Call7 Investigators have confirmed that Denver Bronco DJ Williams was picked up by Denver police Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

DJ Genos Williams was driving a Hummer when he was pulled over at 2:50 a.m. at Broadway and 9th Avenue.

Williams was arrested at the scene, Call7 Investigator Tony Kovaleski said.

The case has been turned over to the Denver district attorney's office, for consideration of charges.

7NEWS has confirmed that a man by the name of DJ Williams is currently in a Denver detox facility.

It's unclear how his arrest will impact Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

A Denver Broncos spokesman said he has no comment at this time.

well the way this season is going I would get drunk before a game as well..... but this is really stupid how can you be called a captain when you do stuff like this.... not only that D.J has been declining on the field anyway.... dumbass

McDaniels said the team does not monitor players' behavior after-hours. He said the players are all adults.

"It's disappointing no matter who it is. Like I said, the behavior, the fact that we're two days away from a game ... it's very disappointing to me and to my organization. I would be no matter who it was," McDaniels said.

"I'm certainly disappointed and do not condone that type of behavior from our players or anybody from within our organization."

and:

Williams said after his 2005 DUI that he realized he needed to get a designated driver whenever he went out partying. The team provides drivers to its players but Williams didn't use one Friday.

wow.

Just a few thoughts regarding this whole situation.

1. I am relieved it was only a DUI and nobody was hurt. When the text message first came in from CBS4, I could only see the beginning part..."Broncos star LB DJ Williams...
The first thing that came to my mind was Darrent Williams and I thought something serious had happened. So, there was my mind set when I read that he was arrested for DUI... Drinking and Driving is certainly bad, but comparatively speaking and with what I thought it was originally... not nearly as bad as some of the other emergent messages I've seen in the past 5 years.

2. The Broncos provide a service for players going out, partying, etc. etc. But they also monitor it. And besides that, these players are very recognizable within their communities. If they take a taxi or get a limo at 2:30 in the morning... somebody is going to notice and talk about it. They risk getting in their own vehicles and driving under the influence b/c they think their is less risk than their organization finding out that they've been out until just a few hours before practice. Cut mentioned this, but it is very safe to assume that DJ does this A LOT.

3. As bad as all of this is, the Broncos would be making a mistake to self impose a suspension on him. Too many things that can go wrong... unless the suspension is for missing team activities yesterday morning. Besides that, the NFL will suspend DJ as well. So if the Broncos suspend him for a game, I'm fine with that... but if they suspend him for 3 or 4 games this year and Goodell suspends him for 4-6 games next year, we screw ourselves.

4. It irks me quite a bit that a team captain would be out the night before a practice. The way this season has been. The way the last few years have been. The defense's struggles. This team lacks leadership. DJ Williams is obviously not a good leader... and you have to wonder what the other guys are like if the team thinks he's the best choice of the bunch!?! We don't need choir boys out there. There are plenty of players in the league that are willing to put their lives on hold during an NFL Season for the good of the team. Those are the guys we need. Not these Yay-hoos that are out burning the midnight oil, "getting their goose on"!

Dump DJ's ass and get David Harris in here next year! Better yet, don't even give DJ that... Make him David Harris' back-up... money be damned!

McDaniels praised him last year. Made him a captain at the beginning of this season. He's had nothing but good things to say about him.

DJ just screwed up. There's no "irony" involved here, just poor decision-making by a millionaire.

Absolutely right. DJ is a pretty damn good LB, better on the outside.

He was having a career year, too. So much for that Pro Bowl appearance.

uuuhg he hasn't made enough plays behind the LOS, or forced enough turnovers to talk pro bowl. He can guard TE really well and chase running plays down. That's all he's good at. He can't shed blocks and make plays in the holes, he doesn't rush the passer, he doesn't cause tunrovers.

The fact he admits to being a huge partier, him getting busted for DUI at what 3 am? tells me he doesn't take football practice seriously really. Probably the reason he never become better then just a linebacker who can run.

While TE and RB are going over gameplan night before, week before game, DJ is probably drunk, getting drunk, or recovering from being drunk. Seriously this explains a lot about his play in Denver since he was drafted.

Probably same ole story of stupid kid gets money, doesn't grow up, starts partying, never lives up to potential.
