DENVER (AP) — Jury selection has begun in the trial of Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams on misdemeanor DUI and traffic charges.
Williams and his attorney, Harvey A. Steinberg, were in Denver County Court for the proceedings on 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 in 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.
