Details emerge on Nebraska coach Keith Williams’ car accident, DUI arrest
Nebraska wide receivers coach Keith Williams was arrested on suspicion of DUI on Sunday and remained in jail Monday morning.
That’s when more details emerged about the arrest. It’s Williams’ third DUI-related charge; the other two came in 2004 and 2009, and he was convicted of both.
Close to 2 a.m. Sunday, Williams hit the back of a car at a stoplight, police told the Lincoln Journal-Star. A female Uber driver and two passengers were in that car, police told Omaha World-Herald. No one was injured in the crash.
The two parties went to exchange information when the Uber driver called the cops because Williams seemed drunk.
Williams had a .15 blood alcohol content when tested by police. The legal limit in Nebraska is .08. He was taken to Lancaster County Jail because he registered a .15 or higher.
Per the World-Herald, a third DUI offense with a blood alcohol content of .15 or more is a Class III felony that could carry up to three years in prison and a $10,000 fine. A person convicted on a third offense could also have their license revoked for 15 years.
