(SportsNetwork.com) - Former Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams, considered a potential first-round pick for the upcoming NFL Draft, was arrested Friday morning for driving under the influence, according to multiple reports.
NFL.com reported that Williams was arrested by FSU police at 3:08 a.m. on Friday and then booked into the Leon County jail. TMZ.com stated that Williams was later released on $500 bond and is scheduled to appear in court on May 14.
Williams is regarded as one of the top cornerbacks in this year's draft class and was named the Defensive MVP of Florida State's win over Auburn in the 2014 BCS National Championship Game. The 6-foot, 196-pound prospect was also a semifinalist for the 2014 Thorpe Award honoring the best defensive back in college football and earned first team All-ACC honors during his junior season with the Seminoles.
The 21-year-old Williams also was involved in a previous off-field issue back in November, when he reportedly left the scene of an accident but was only issued traffic citations.
