It's been nearly a week since Cowboys receiver Terrance Williams was charged with public intoxication and police are still trying to figure out what exactly happened last Saturday, on a night that ended with the receiver's $325,000 Lamborghini being smashed into a light pole.

According to the police report, Terrance said Kendall left the crash scene and went to a club - but called Terrance to let him know where to find the auto.

'The driver in front of me slammed on his brakes and I turned to the left and hopped the curb to avoid hitting him, ' Williams said in his statement.

Williams was arrested for public intoxication, a Class C misdemeanor, and was later released on a $369 bond from the Frisco Detention Center. The tale invited suspicion, though, after Williams told police he'd gotten a call from Wright informing him of the auto crash, only to then admit that his cell phone was still in his vehicle. "Williams said Wright called him at around 1:45 a.m.to let him know he had crashed the Lamborghini on Lebanon Road". When police asked if Wright was still with the wrecked Lamborghini, Williams said no.

Lewis says Williams closed his eyes as he braced for impact when he veered off the road.

OFFICER: Tell me what happened to your vehicle up there, man?

TMZ Sports and The Dallas Morning News obtained photos of the crash and TMZ released dashcam footage of Williams' arrest.

Cops didn't believe Terrance ... because Williams' cell phone was actually inside the Lambo. Anytime you hit a curve going about 60 miles per hour and struck his head, I don't know, but we're going to find out. Wright now plays for the Minnesota Vikings.

Now, it appears as though Williams' story is changing a little bit.

"The police officer, who I have met in the past in the neighborhood, saw me on the scooter and arrested me without performing any sobriety tests".

ESPN NFL Nation Vikings reporter Courtney Cronin is reporting on Twitter that Minnesota General Manager Rick Spielman has already spoken with Kendall Wright regarding the matter and are not too concerned with the Williams story. He said he would "never put himself in a (blanked) up situation where (the police) would be there". As two police vehicles approached the swerving scooter from behind, Williams looked back, swerved more severely and crashed, sending him over the handlebars.

The Cowboys have not commented since the video release, but owner Jerry Jones told USA Today previously that he backed Williams and took his public statements at face value.
