Denver Broncos Remain 2-6 After Stripping D.J. Williams Of Captaincy

Denver Broncos "star linebacker" D.J. Williams (left) forgot to turn his Hummer headlights on Friday morning. Johnny Law suspects he was drunk. So, Williams is no longer team captain. Aw.

From the Denver Post ...

Williams also faces a multi-game suspension from the league as a two-time offender of the substance-abuse policy. Friday's arrest was his second for DUI. The first was during the 2005 season.

If convicted on the latest charges, Williams also faces a mandatory 10-day jail sentence (though at a judge's discretion it could be served in-home) and a minimum of two years probation. His first court date is schedule for Dec. 13.

"The Denver Broncos are extremely disappointed in D.J. Williams' careless and irresponsible actions on Friday morning. This type of behavior is taken very seriously by the organization," the team said in a statement Saturday morning.


Here's hoping the team makes Williams wear eye-black strips emblazoned with the verse "BAC 2 .05-.20" when he enters the game by the end of the first quarter.
