According to the Dallas Police Department, an officer stopped Carroll for driving down the wrong side of the road in the 2200 block of McKinney Avenue. He was arrested after failing a field sobriety test. He refused to do a breathalyzer at jail and was charged with misdemeanor DWI.
He was released Monday afternoon by the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department on a $500 bond.
The Cowboys issued this statement Monday evening: “We’re aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering information at this time.”
The former Arkansas running back retired from the sport earlier this month after a scary injury in the Razorbacks’ spring game left him no other choice. He’s since received an opportunity from the Dallas Cowboys for a summer internship, however, and has accepted the offer.
Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said Williams had other internship options with NFL clubs, per the report, but the fit here is obvious: Williams is a Dallas native, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones played at Arkansas in the 1960s.
Williams was the SEC’s third-leading rusher last season with 1,360 yards and 12 touchdowns. However, he was coming off a neck injury that required surgery to fuse a ruptured disc in 2015. After Williams was hurt again in the spring game with what school officials described as a stinger on April 29 — he reportedly was unable to move initially — he decided to walk away from the sport, saying in an open letter that he had “dodged the bullet twice.”
Nobody is wearing No. 9 on the current roster and unless they had a quarterback with an affinity for the number, it could be a while before they choose to give out the number.
Inside The Star, the Cowboys have yet to move a player into Romo’s old locker, either. That could change. Coach Jason Garrett has put team leaders at different corners of the locker room, but Romo’s spot remains vacant.
Over the weekend, Cowboys quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson told Scout.com that it would be “fun to speculate” on Romo returning from the broadcast booth should something happen to entrenched starter Dak Prescott. It’s a comment that got taken way out of context during a slow news cycle, but his answer to the question — On an emergency Romo return being the plan on anyone’s mind — is still interesting.
“You know it’s hard to say. Those conversations about Tony and ‘What’s he going to do, is he going to Houston, is he going to Denver, is he going into broadcasting?’, they were way above my floor, where I’m at. It’s fun to speculate about that, if Dak were to go down in week 2, would Tony come back? I don’t know the answer to that. I just don’t know. Do I think he’s capable of coming back and playing? Most definitely. Does he want to or what his commitment is to the network? I don’t know that, so it’s fun to think about, and it’s fun water-cooler topics to talk about, [even without] information to make a definitive answer on that.”
At least for now, all of this leads me to the conclusion that there will be no final conclusion any time soon. As I noted in the Jones article above, Dallas could just be saving up for a Derek Jeter-like retirement ceremony like the one the Yankees legend had on Mother’s Day this year — two years after his exit from Major League Baseball. They also could simply be waiting for retirement papers, which have yet to come.
