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

The 2019 second-round pick was arrested following a traffic stop back on January 17 after drugs were found in his vehicle. He was initially charged with speeding, possession of a controlled substance, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

We now know the substances he was caught with include Vicodin and pot, as well as an antiviral drug.

Williams court date in his home state of Tennessee is scheduled for February 21. A first-time drug offense in the state can carry a fine as large as $2,500 and up to a one-year jail sentence.

Williams was drafted 45th overall by the Patriots in the 2019 NFL Draft. The former Vanderbilt Commodore played in nine games last season, primarily on special teams. He recorded four tackles and one pass breakup.
