NFL Star Mike Williams Arrested for DUI

11/19/2010 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was arrested for DUI last night -- but cops don't think the rookie superstar was drunk.

Mike Williams Arrested

As ProFootballTalk first reported, Williams was pulled over in Hillsborough County, Florida around 2:48 AM after cops say he was going 57 in a 45 ... and weaving all over the place.

Cops say the 23-year-old failed a field sobriety test -- and eventually took two breathalyzer tests once he had been taken to a nearby police station. Cops say he blew a .061 and a .065 -- both under the legal limit of .08.

Law enforcement officials tell us Williams may have been under the influence of something that can't be detected by a breathalyzer -- so they asked him to submit to a urine test.

Williams obliged -- but the results of the pee test are still pending and could take weeks.  

Williams was released early this morning -- and we're told he was "very cooperative with the arresting officer and agreed to everything that was requested.”

A DUI for something else won't stick because it was a urine analysis. To get somone for DUI for drugs it has to be a blood-test. A urinalysis dosen't prove you are intoxicated at the time. It just proves you have something in your system. I shoud know, I got a DUI for weed.

Since when does it take weeks to get results back from urine tests?! I've been tested for multiple drugs and had the results within a 1/2 hour. The one's I had to do regularly took 2-3 days. Seriously, in what world does it take "weeks"?

I live in Florida...you can go to jail by just having an open can of beer on the street and you will. Florida is
a de facto police state. One joint will get you jail time.
This place is stuck in 1950.
