SEATTLE (AP) — Washington wide receiver Kasen Williams was fined and received a misdemeanor citation after he was pulled over for speeding and investigation of driving under the influence near Chelan, Wash., in May.

News of Williams' arrest emerged on Tuesday after Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian released a statement saying the school was aware of the incident and that any discipline handed down to the wide receiver would be kept internal.

He's the second Washington star to face off-field problems after tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins was arrested on DUI charges earlier this spring. Seferian-Jenkins faces a pre-trial hearing in the case next week.

According to court documents, Williams was pulled over by the Washington State Patrol for speeding on May 26.
