Washington Huskies wide receiver Kasen Williams was cited for misdemeanor for speeding and investigation of driving under the influence in May. 

The Washington Post via the Associated Press says the incident took place in Chelan, Wa. Williams was pulled over by Washington State Patrol on May 26 for going 15 over in a 30 miles-per-hour zone. The patrolling officer smelled the presence of marijuana and alcohol. Williams, who said he consumed one drink, willingly took a breath test and passed. 

Although he was not charged for DUI, Williams was "cited for being under 21 and operating a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol or marijuana. Williams received a 24-month deferred sentence, paid a $695.50 fine and was placed on probation for two years," per the Washington Post report. 

Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian released a statement on Tuesday. 

"As a matter of policy, any disciplinary measures taken as a result of this incident will remain internal to the team."

The development comes three months after Williams' teammate, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, was charged with DUI on April 9, per the Seattle Post Intelligencer's Nick Eaton. Seferian-Jenkins' blood-alcohol level at the time was discovered to be well above the .08 legal limit. 

Williams, 20, led the Huskies with 77 catches for 878 yards and six touchdowns last season. Ironically, Seferian-Jenkins is the team's second-leading receiver, per CBS Sports.
