According to a report from Austin Knoblauch of NFL.com, Bills running back Jonathan Williams was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.

The Bills released a statement on the arrest earlier today:
“We are aware of the report and are in the process of gathering information. We have notified the league office of the report under the rules of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy.”
