Cowboys' Terrance Williams told police ex-teammate Kendall Wright responsible for crash

Attorney: Cowboys wide receiver Williams misspoke about crash

In a statement to KXAS Saturday, Williams' attorney said that "contrary to media reports, Terrance did not hit a light pole and there was no light pole even near the vehicle". For one, he said Wright "called" him to tell him about his auto.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday that he spoke with Williams, who is recovering from offseason foot surgery, a couple of times regarding the incident. And I don't want to drive and be a f--g idiot, so I took [the scooter] and this is my first time riding it.

WILLIAMS: I'm honestly fine.

The general manager of the Minnesota Vikings, who Wright now plays for, told ESPN there was "no truth" to the claims that Wright was at fault for the crash. However, when asked about the location of his cell phone, Williams said he didn't have it because it was still in the mangled Lamborghini, which would make it pretty much impossible for Wright to have called him.

When police asked Williams how his phone could be in the auto when he had just said that Wright was in the vehicle and called Williams to tell him about the crash, Williams said, "I'm not trying to lie to you".

"All of that is news to me", the lawyer continued.

However, in a statement released by Williams through his agency after the accident, he said, "The driver in front of me slammed on his brakes and I turned to the left and hopped the curb to avoid hitting him".

WILLIAMS: I'm not trying to lie to you.

In the video, you can see Williams swerving on the scooter and then falling off as officers approach him.

On March 30, 2018, the Minnesota Vikings struck a deal with wide receiver Kendall Wright on a one-year contract worth $1 million, including $400,000 in guaranteed money, a $100,000 signing bonus, and a $100,000 workout bonus according to Spotrac.

"I have spoken directly with Kendall and his agent and both have assured me there is no truth to the matter", Spielman said.

"Based on the totality of the circumstances Terrance was believed to be intoxicated in a public place", the police report said.

The Cowboys wide receiver appeared to be a drunken mess when cops found him after his Lamborghini crash. I have always been an upstanding citizen and handled the situation the best way I know how.

The Cowboys have not commented since the video release, but owner Jerry Jones told USA Today previously that he backed Williams and took his public statements at face value.
