LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska wide receivers coach Keith Williams was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after a car crash involving two vehicles early Sunday.

According to a Lincoln Police accident report, the 45-year-old Williams' blood-alcohol level was at least 0.15, twice the legal limit of 0.08, and the report showed he had two prior DUI convictions. The crash occurred about 1:50 a.m. a few blocks from Memorial Stadium in downtown.

Nebraska athletic spokesman Keith Mann says the department is aware of the incident, but officials declined to comment until they gather more information.

Williams remained in Lancaster County Jail late Sunday afternoon and has a court appearance scheduled Monday.

Williams' arrest came on the weekend five-star receiver recruit Joseph Lewis of Los Angeles was on campus for a visit.
