The Plano Police Department has issued an arrest warrant for Dallas Cowboys defensive end Sam Williams for his alleged role in a December car crash, TMZ reported.
While no further details were provided, Plano police told TMZ the misdemeanor warrant was for reckless driving. A spokesman said there were “currently no plans to locate and arrest” Williams because the 23-year-old footballer “has been contacted to turn himself in”.
On December 22, the player drove his black Corvette into another car, causing debris to litter the road and causing serious damage. No one was injured in the accident.
In a later statement about the incident, the player said he was grateful to be alive. “You look at the car, man, but God works in mysterious ways. I know he has something in store for me.”
It’s unclear if the defensive end will be available for the Cowboys’ playoff game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday.
Plano is near Frisco, where the Cowboys are headquartered. While police said at the time that no alcohol or drugs caused the accident, it now appears that his reckless driving was the cause of the accident.
Both parties went to the hospital, but neither was seriously injured.
How is Sam Williams doing with the Cowboys?
He’s been a big part of the defense, with four sacks and nine quarterback hits in just 15 games. He also never took more than 50 percent of his defensive snaps in a single game.
