Jury seated in DJ Williams' DUI trial

DENVER (AP) -- A jury has been seated in the trial of Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams on misdemeanor DUI and traffic charges.

The three men and three women were selected Monday after questioning in Denver County Court. They range in age from 20 to 61. Opening arguments were scheduled for later Monday.

Williams is accused of driving under the influence and not having headlights on his car in November 2010.

His trial had been delayed several times, including last fall after he suffered a dislocated right elbow during a game.

He faces a multiple-game suspension from the league because it was his second such arrest in his seven seasons in Denver. The Broncos stripped him of his captain's title shortly after his arrest.
