SEATTLE (AP) - Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams was fined and received a misdemeanor citation after he was pulled over for speeding and investigation of driving under the influence near Chelan, Wash., in May.
News of Williams' arrest emerged on Tuesday after Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian released a statement saying the school was aware of the incident.
``As a matter of policy, any disciplinary measures taken as a result of this incident will remain internal to the team,'' Sarkisian said in his statement.
Williams is the second Washington star to face off-field problems after tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested on DUI charges earlier this spring. Seferian-Jenkins faces a pre-trial hearing in the case next week.
According to court documents, Williams was pulled over by the Washington State Patrol for speeding on May 26 after being clocked going 45 mph in a 30 mph zone.
In the arrest report, the Washington State Patrol officer said he noted the smell of marijuana and alcohol as he approached the car. Williams was cooperative and told the officer he had consumed one drink. Williams agreed to a breath test and both tests came back under Washington's legal limit of .08 - .059 and .056.
Williams was not charged with a DUI, but was cited for being under 21 and operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or marijuana. Williams received a 24-month deferred sentence, paid a $695.50 fine and was placed on probation for two years.
Williams was Washington's leading receiver a year ago with 77 catches for 878 yards and six touchdowns. In two seasons, Williams already has 12 touchdown receptions.
Whether Seferian-Jenkins or Williams will face any suspension will now be a lingering question for Sarkisian, especially with the Huskies opening the season at home against Boise State. Seferian-Jenkins was charged in early April and suspended from team activities during spring practice. He has a court hearing scheduled for next Monday.
