DENVER (AP) -- A Denver judge has declared a mistrial for Denver Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams in a misdemeanor DUI case.
Williams' lawyer, Harvey Steinberg, asked for the mistrial Monday before opening statements were about to begin. Steinberg says he was only able to excuse two jurors instead of the three he was entitled to during jury selection.
Judge Andre L. Rudolph granted the request and scheduled another trial for Aug. 15.
Williams' trial had already been delayed several times before the mistrial, including last fall after he suffered a dislocated right elbow during a game.
He faces a multiple-game suspension from the league because it was his second such arrest in his seven seasons in Denver. The Broncos stripped him of his captain's title shortly after his arrest.
