New England Patriots cornerback Joejuan Williams was arrested on drug charges in Tennessee’s Cumberland County last Friday, according to WTVF News Channel 5.

Williams, 22, had been pulled over by Tennessee Highway Patrol for speeding when an unnamed controlled substance, prescription drugs and drug paraphernalia were discovered.

WTVF reported Wednesday that Williams is facing charges for speeding, possession of a controlled substance, possession of legend drugs without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia.

The Patriots selected Williams in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft out of Vanderbilt.

Williams appeared in nine games during his rookie regular season in New England. The Nashville native recorded five tackles and one pass deflection over 80 snaps on defense and 84 snaps on special teams.
