RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -Atlanta Falcons cornerback Jimmy Williams is facing a misdemeanor marijuana possession charge.
State police charged the Hampton native on June 2, according to Goochland County General District Court records. An initial court appearance scheduled for July 16 was postponed until Dec. 3.
The incident was first reported by television station WGCL in Atlanta. The station reported that Williams said he is innocent and that Falcons president Rich McKay and coach Bob Petrino had a copy of the police report and were discussing the matter Monday.
Williams' Arizona-based agent, Ethan Lock, told The Associated Press on Monday night he had talked to his client about the matter. He declined further comment.
The case is another distraction for the Falcons, who are dealing with star quarterback Michael Vick's federal indictment on dogfighting conspiracy charges. Vick and Williams, 23, are former Virginia Tech standouts.
Williams, a second-round pick in the 2006 draft, played in 13 games and started five last season.
