·1 min read

About 15 hours after he was arrested for DWI, Arkansas defensive end Tre Williams declared for the NFL draft.

“With regards to what happened early this morning I want to apologize for what occurred and not representing the state and logo the way that it should be represented, which is with pride and honor,” Williams wrote in his announcement posted to Twitter.

Williams was in his first season with the Razorbacks after transferring from Missouri in the offseason. He was booked at 1:50 a.m. on the charge by the Fayetteville Police Department.

Per the police report, via Andrew Hutchinson at Rivals, Williams was arrested after being found sleeping in a parked car in the drive-thru lane of a McDonald’s parking lot.

His declaration almost certainly means he will not play in Arkansas’ Outback Bowl against Penn State on January 1.

Williams was the team’s leading pass rusher this season. He had 28 tackles, including 6 1/2 for-loss and six sacks.
