It seems like Williams' defense is going to be that he suffered a head injury in the crash, but you can understand why police felt he was intoxicated.
In a statement released by Lewis on Saturday evening, Williams said that he was driving the Lamborghini when the accident happened, after a auto in front of him stopped quickly.
According to the report, Williams went on to tell police that he had been at his home the "whole time" and that Wright had called him around 1:45 a.m.to tell him he had crashed the Lamborghini. Williams has played his entire National Football League career for the Cowboys, while Wright signed with the Vikings this year after previously playing for the Titans and Bears.
So far the Cowboys are sticking behind Williams in what is an ongoing investigation by the Frisco police and the team.
"The driver in front of me slammed on his brakes and I turned to the left and hopped the curb to avoid hitting him". "I don't want to drive and be a f--ing idiot and so I took [my bicycle]".
Williams was arrested for public intoxication, a Class C misdemeanor, and was later released on a $369 bond from the Frisco Detention Center.
Two problems with Williams' story are the police found his cellphone in the auto and security at his gated community said the Cowboys player was driven home just 15-20 minutes earlier riding with someone else. He then asked Williams how Wright could have called him if his cell phone was in the vehicle.
"All I have is what Terrance remembers", attorney Chip Lewis said, via the Dallas Morning News.
The video lines up with the story in the initial police report and is contrary to statements released by Williams and his lawyer Chip Lewis, who claim the vehicle accident didn't involve a light pole at all. "I apologize if I should have handled it a little bit differently".
Williams was observed to have bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and the odor of alcohol by officers at the scene, prompting his arrest absent a sobriety test or breathalyzer.
Rick Spielman, general manager of the Vikings, told ESPN that Wright and his agent said "there is no truth to the matter".
Police didn't approach Williams until he crashed his bike and fell flat on his face around 5 a.m. on the night of the incident.
Plus, cops say they found the key to the vehicle in Terrance's pocket when they searched him.
For now, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is standing by Williams, but it sounds like that could change since Jones' trust was based largely on Williams' original statement that no longer appears to be completely true. "Real solid", Jones told USA Today.
