What would possess anyone to smile for a mugshot is beyond me. Then again, Williams has always been an intriguing personality over the years.
According to the American-Statesman, Williams was arrested by police in South Austin on Tuesday on traffic warrants. What violations led to those warrants was not described. He was initially pulled over for a traffic offense. He was then taken into custody in a county jail and has since been released.
This wasn’t Williams’ first trip to the Travis County Jail. He was also booked there during his NFL career for — you guessed it — a traffic-related offense. Maybe it’s time for Williams to just start using Uber or Lyft to get where he needs.
