D.J. Williams could face more NFL discipline

By Bill Williamson

D.J. Williams could have more trouble with the NFL.

Already facing a six-game ban from the league to start the season for using banned substance, the Denver linebacker was found guilty of driving while ability impaired and driving without his headlights on.

He was being tried stemming from a November, 2010 arrest for driving under the influence. The charge he was convicted on is a lesser alcohol related driving offense. Williams pleaded guilty to driving while impaired in Colorado in 2005.

The league could potentially suspended Williams independently of his other suspension after this conviction. According to the Denver Post, Williams faces a minimum of 10 days and up to one year in jail, a fine amount of $600 to $1,500 and 48 to 120 hours of community service.
