Indiana junior cornerback Jaylin Williams was arrested on charges of operating while intoxicated and OWI endangerment, both misdemeanors. Jon Blau of the Bloomington Herald-Times was the first to report the news.
An officer at the Monroe County Jail confirmed the charges to The Daily Hoosier and said that Williams was booked into the jail at 1:33 AM and released on $1,000 surety and $500 cash bond at 7:04 AM.
An Indiana spokesman also confirmed the arrest and released a statement on behalf of the program.
“Indiana University athletics and the IU football program are aware of the arrest of Jaylin Williams. IU athletics will continue to gather facts, cooperate with and monitor the legal process and take further action as the evolving situation warrants,” the release said.
Williams is 20 years old and will turn 21 on Feb. 26. He was second-team All-Big Ten this season and recorded four interceptions.
