Corey Williams DT Detroit Lions

The NFL may soon want to start cracking down on DUI offenders, as today marked the 12th, and 13th DUI's players have gotten in 2012. [Editors note: Williams occurred in 2011, didn't make news until over a year later] First was Kenny Britt, and now comes word that Detroit Lions defensive lineman Corey Williams was the latest to be put in cuffs for drinking and driving.

Corey Williams was stopped by police on June 18th, 2011 at around 11:30 P.M. for crossing the center line. He failed a field sobriety test, and subsequently blew a .10 on the breathalyzer. William's lawyer is claiming racial profiling because all the people in the vehicle were African-American and they were driving a large truck with "unusually large wheels and tires.”

The news arrived due to the fact that Williams had a court appearance today. Over one year and one month after the fact, it's fair to question whether there are any other DUI's that have been kept under the wraps.

It's time someone starts an office pool.

  1. I don't think the NFL should do anything to DUI offenders. I mean after all, they aren't required to drive vehicles. In the real world those who receive punishment from their employer for a DUI are those who drive for a living. The rest of us usually don't hear a word from our employer.
