Detroit Lions defensive lineman Corey Williams appeared in court in Monticello, Ark., this week facing a charge of driving while intoxicated in an incident that occurred last year, according to the Monticello Daily News.

Late on the evening of June 18, 2011, Williams was stopped by an Arkansas State Trooper for crossing the center line, according to the report.

He failed the field sobriety test at the scene and was arrested. Williams reportedly blew a .10 on the BAC test, with .08 being the legal limit.

Williams attorney, Rickey Hicks, filed a motion to suppress the traffic stop and subsequent charges, claiming Williams was racially profiled, and tha he did not cross the center line

"Corey did not report this incident to us when it happened due to the prohibition of contact during last year's work stoppage," the Detroit Lions said in a statement. "We are aware of today's reports. We are in process of gathering more info and will have further comment when appropriate."

Williams started 15 games for the Lions last season and had two sacks.
