New details have emerged on the arrest of New England Patriots cornerback Joejuan Williams.

The 22-year-old reportedly was arrested Jan. 17 in Tennessee and charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drugs without a prescription and possession of drug paraphernalia. He also was cited for speeding.

Per a Saturday update from the Tennessean, Williams was found with painkillers and marijuana, among other things.

Here are the full details, along with a useful translation from Dr. Jessica Flynn, a sports medicine physician at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Mass., who also contributes to Boston Sports Journal:

Williams is due in court Feb. 21.

The Vanderbilt product is coming off a rookie season in which he played in 10 games (including one in the postseason), serving in a mostly special teams role while also logging 80 snaps at defensive back. He was selected by the Patriots in the second round (45th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.
