MIAMI (June 24, 2005) -- The Miami Dolphins cut Quintin Williams one day after the second-year safety was arrested on DUI and drag racing charges.
At 4 a.m. on June 23, Williams was clocked driving 111 mph on Interstate 595 near the Dolphins practice facility in Davie with teammate Travares Tillman in his passenger seat, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The 22-year-old Williams failed a roadside DUI test and was charged with DUI, racing on a highway and unlawful speeding, Lt. Bill Ferrell said. Williams was released from jail later in the day.
Tillman was allowed to get a ride home with the other driver, Brandy Lynn Richards, but he was not arrested. Richards was charged with unlawful speeding and racing on a highway.
"This is not the kind of behavior we expect from our players," Dolphins coach Nick Saban said after learning of the arrest.
Williams was signed as an undrafted college free agent last year. He spent the first nine weeks on the practice squad last season and appeared in six games in a reserve role. He was credited with four special-teams tackles.
Also, the Dolphins waived wide receiver Luther Huggins and tight end Victor Sesay. Both were signed as undrafted free agents this offseason.
