Police say he was pulled over a little before 3 a.m., when he was spotted driving his car without headlights. He was cited with DUI and taken to a detox facility.

He was fined an undisclosed amount by the team.

Williams, the team’s top tackler in 2010, dislocated his right elbow in a preseason game but came back to start in 13 regular season games and again lead the Broncos in tackles.

Williams has filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn his NFL drug suspension without pay for Denver’s first six games of the 2012 season that starts in September. The lawsuit contends that the league violated protocol in collecting urine samples and that the specimen provided for testing by the collector were non-human.

Williams‘ lawyer, Peter R. Ginsberg, said that case is pending.
