Why Miami police are investigating an incident involving Cowboys WR Terrance Williams

Injured Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams almost had as bad a weekend as his teammates.

While the Cowboys were losing to the Washington Redskins, 20-17, on Sunday, Williams was in Miami dealing with the aftermath of a police investigation over a hotel room altercation, first reported by TMZ.

Williams is currently serving a three-game suspension from the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy stemming from a car accident last May and an arrest for public intoxication.

He is serving the suspension while on injured reserve because of a foot injury.

Williams didn’t make the trip with the team to Washington D.C., which is not unusual for players on injured reserve.

He was in Miami where the cops were called to the Fontainebleau Hotel early Saturday morning by Instagram Model Nicole Zavala, according to a police report from the Miami Beach Police Department.

Zavala told police she had met Williams at a nightclub and went back to his hotel room. A disagreement ensued and Williams asked her to leave his room.

Zavala refused and Williams called a friend who grabbed her by the arm and moved her out of the room.

She called the police.

Williams said he never touched Zavala, which she acknowledged as well.

Police reviewed cell phone video of Zavala sitting on the bed refusing to leave the room after being asked.

The incident is being investigated as a battery report but no arrests were made and no charges were filed.

Williams had two catches for 18 yards in the first three games this season and played only 39 snaps before being placed on injured reserve on Oct. 6. He is eligible to return to action off injured reserve on Dec. 9 at Philadelphia.
