According to the Tampa Tribune, the Hillsborough County State Attorney’s Office will not pursue charges on Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams for his November arrest of suspicion of DUI.
Hillsborough State Attorney Mark Cox claimed Williams’ urine test came back clean, leading them to take no further action.
Williams was pulled over by authorities on November 19th in Brandon for going 12 miles over the speed limit. The officer on scene thought Williams was impaired and had him perform at field sobriety test. Williams was then arrested and booked at Orient Road jail.
There it was determined that Williams had a blood alcohol level (0.065 and 0.061) less than the legal limit (0.08). He was released later that morning.
The Bucs handled Williams’ situation internally and fined him an undisclosed amount of money following his arrest.
Williams, who was a fourth-round pick out of Syracuse, rewrote the Tampa Bay record books during his rookie campaign. He led all rookies with 65 receptions, 974 yards, and he had a franchise-record 11 touchdown catches. He and fellow rookie running back LeGarrette Blount became the first teammates since 1968 to lead their incoming class in receiving and rushing yards.
Williams has been named to countless All-rookie teams and is a finalist for the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.
