D.J. Williams due in court Jan. 18
DENVER -- Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams waived an advisement hearing on a charge of driving under the influence and will appear in court next month.
Williams had been scheduled to be in court in Denver on Monday for the hearing but district attorney's spokeswoman Lynn Kimbrough said Williams' attorney waived his right to be advised of the charge.
A judge set a hearing for Jan. 18 during which Williams is expected to enter a plea.
Williams was arrested early on Nov. 12 after police stopped him for driving without headlights.
The Broncos' leading tackler was stripped of his captaincy for the season and fined an undisclosed amount by the team. He faces a multi-game suspension from the league next season because this was his second such arrest.
