MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Former Dallas Cowboys running back Sherman Williams has been arrested on charges he was dealing marijuana.
Williams, 26, was charged Friday, FBI spokesman Ray Zicarelli said Sunday.
Williams was being held without bond in Mobile County Metro Jail pending a hearing in U.S. District Court.
Zicarelli declined to give further details, saying the FBI would release more information later.
Williams was a running back for four seasons with the Cowboys, before being waived in October. He went to the Mobile Admirals of the Regional Football League. He was voted the league's most valuable player and led the Admirals to the league championship.
Williams led Alabama to the national championship in 1992.
