Patriots rookie Joejuan Williams charged with drug possession after being stopped for speeding
The cornerback was a second-round draft pick in 2019
For the second time this month, a New England Patriots player is in trouble with the law. As reported by CBS Boston, rookie cornerback Joejuan Williams was arrested Friday night in Nashville. A second-round draft pick in 2019, Williams was stopped by Tennessee Highway Patrol at 9:37 p.m. for speeding, per police, and discovered that he possessed a controlled substance, drug paraphernalia and prescription drugs without a prescription.
Williams' arrest comes less than two weeks after wide receiver Julian Edelman was .
Selected 45th overall in last year's NFL Draft, Williams was born and raised in Nashville, spending both his high school and collegiate careers in the area. The Patriots traded up to pick him after he logged a personal-best four interceptions as a junior at Vanderbilt.
As a rookie in 2019, the corner appeared in nine games, taking 80 defensive snaps and another 85 on special teams. He finished with five tackles and a pass deflection before also appearing in New England's lone postseason game.
