Saints’ P.J. Williams Arrested for Drunk Driving … In New Orleans

Exclusive Details

6:48 AM PT — Officials tell TMZ Sports … Williams was initially pulled over for going 80 in a 50 on the Crescent City Connection Bridge. 

During the stop, cops suspected he was intoxicated and tried to administer a breath test but Williams refused … so he was arrested. 

We’re told he was booked for driving while intoxicated, speeding, improper lane usage and failure to use a turn signal. A bad week just got worse for New Orleans Saints cornerback P.J. Williams — who was arrested early Wednesday morning when cops say he was driving drunk in the Big Easy. 

The 25-year-old — a key player on the Saints defense — was booked for drunk driving and careless driving at 1:10 AM, according to The Advocate.

After posing for a mug shot, Williams was released roughly 3 hours after his arrest. We’re working on the details. 

It’s not the first time Williams has been arrested for drunk driving — he was popped for DUI in Florida back in 2015 but the case was thrown out because police dash cam video failed to capture key moments from that arrest. 

Williams was a stud back in college where he helped Florida State win the national championship playing with Jameis Winston back in 2013. 

He later entered the NFL Draft in 2015 where he was selected by the Saints in the 3rd round. 

Since turning pro, he’s been a pretty solid player — even picking off Kirk Cousins for a Pick 6 in the Week 8 battle this season against the Minnesota Vikings. 

Williams played in 15 games in 2018 for the Saints — posting 53 tackles, 1 interception and 1 sack. 

He started in the NFC championship game against the L.A. Rams last weekend — and had 8 tackles and broke up 1 pass in the 26 to 23 loss.

NY Giants QB Kyle Lauletta Pleads Guilty In Dangerous Driving Case

Breaking News

NY Giants backup QB Kyle Lauletta just pled guilty to obstruction of justice stemming from his wild October arrest where he allegedly almost ran over a cop. 

Remember, officials in Weehawken, New Jersey say the 23-year-old was driving his 2017 Jaguar in a “dangerous manner” on the way to Giants practice when cops attempted to pull him over. 

When an officer tried to stop him, the QB continued to drive like a maniac and almost hit the cop. 

He was initially booked on several charges — including 3rd degree eluding police, obstruction of justice, reckless driving and other lesser crimes. 

But now, officials say Lauletta cut a deal with prosecutors in which he pled guilty to a disorderly persons offense of obstructing the administration of law at a motor vehicle stop … and in exchange, the more serious charges will be dropped as part of a conditional dismissal. 

In other words, if Lauletta stays out of trouble for 12 months, all of his legal problems go away. 

If he screws up, the judge can reinstate all of the initial charges — in which case he could face up to 6 months in jail.  

In addition, Lauletta pled guilty to a few minor traffic violations. 

As for the Giants, the team previously hit Lauletta with a fine.

EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle‘s half-brother, Thomas, was arrested Friday for driving under the influence of alcohol … TMZ has learned. 

The 52-year-old was driving by Oregon State Police when police stopped him at 1:33 AM and took him into custody for impaired driving. 

Cops performed a field sobriety test and they say his impairment was obvious. They say he was visibly intoxicated and blew well over the legal limit.  

Thomas — the son of Meghan’s father, Thomas Sr. — was taken to the Grants Pass Sobering Center. His Chevy Silverado was impounded.

Thomas is estranged from Meghan. He sent a letter to Prince Harry in April in which he said, “It’s not too late. Meghan Markle is obviously not the right woman for you.”

Thomas’ dad tells TMZ, “My son has a serious problem and he needs help, and I hope he gets it.”  Thomas Jr.’s sister, Samantha, tells TMZ, “His drinking is not related to Meghan. He always drank.”

Thomas has had legal problems in the past. In January 2017, he was arrested for holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head during a drunken fight.
