Detroit Lions defensive lineman Corey Williams appeared in court Friday in Monticello, Ark., according to Monticello Live. Williams reportedly blew a .10 on the blood-alcohol content test after an incident on June 18, 2011 -- .08 is considered legally drunk. His lawyer says that Williams was racially profiled.

"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."

The Lions have suffered through a miserable offseason with six previous arrests. This infraction may have happened last year, but it only is going to increase the current headaches for coach Jim Schwartz and general manager Martin Mayhew.
