Jury Selected For D.J. Williams DUI Trial

DENVER (AP) — A jury has been selected in the drunken driving trial of Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams.

Opening statements were scheduled Wednesday afternoon in Denver and testimony should be wrapped up by the end of the day.

The weakside linebacker is already facing a six-game suspension for failing an offseason drug test. A conviction for driving under the influence and traffic charges could result in an even longer suspension.

Williams’ trial was delayed several times, including last fall after he suffered a dislocated right elbow during a game. In May, just as opening statements were about to begin, his lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, won a mistrial after objecting to how jurors were selected.
