Kasen Williams, Washington’s leading receiver in 2012, paid a fine of $695.50 on Monday for a misdemeanor citation related to a May 26 incident in which he was pulled over in Chelan County for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol or marijuana.

Williams, 20, a junior from Sammamish, took a voluntary breath test at the scene, according to court records. He blew a .059 and .056, both under the legal limit of .08.

He was ultimately not charged with DUI, but he was cited for being under 21 and operating a vehicle after consuming alcohol or marijuana. As part of his citation, he was also placed on two years’ probation.

UW’s other standout pass-catcher, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, is scheduled to appear in court on Monday for a pretrial hearing related to his March arrest on a DUI charge.

Williams was pulled over for driving 45 mph in a 30 mph zone. The Washington State Patrol officer noted a smell of alcohol and marijuana, and Williams told the officer he had had one drink.

UW released a statement from coach Steve Sarkisian on Tuesday afternoon: “We are aware of an incident involving Kasen Williams in Chelan County on May 26. As a matter of policy, any disciplinary measures taken as a result of this incident will remain internal to the team.”

As a sophomore last season, Williams had a team-high 77 catches for 878 yards and six touchdowns.
