AUSTIN, Texas (KEYE) - A former University of Texas Longhorn and NFL running back was arrested Tuesday night after a South Austin traffic stop, police confirm.

Austin Police say Ricky Williams' car was missing a license plate when he was stopped near Manchaca Road and Ben White Boulevard.

He had two outstanding warrants and he was booked into the Travis County Jail.

Online records show he is no longer in custody.

Back in January, Williams complained he had been racially profiled after an incident with police in Tyler.
