    Former Memphis Tiger Shawne Williams indicted, arrested on drug charges

    He was waived by the NBA's New Jersey Nets today

    Former Memphis Tigers basketball player Shawne Williams, who was waived by the NBA's New Jersey Nets today, was indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury on Tuesday on eight drug charges.

    According to the Shelby County District Attorney's office, Williams was indicted on four counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture/deliver/sell, and four counts of conspiracy to manufacture/deliver/sell a controlled substance, a codeine-based syrup. Both are considered Class E felonies and carry standard sentences of 1-2 years, if convicted.

    Williams turned himself into authorities and was booked today into the Shelby County Jail. His bond has been set at $16,000. He is one of 24 defendants indicted following the Memphis Police Department's "Operation: Lockdown" investigation.

    Williams' case is assigned to Criminal Court Division 10, but no arraignment date has been scheduled.

    A native of Memphis, Williams played with the University of Memphis in the 2005-06 season, then declared for the NBA draft. Williams was selected by Indiana. With the Tigers, he was named to numerous freshman All-America teams

    That's a shame. I hope he can get it turned around in the future...

    "But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."

    Color me shocked.

    It depresses me that players throw away talent, cause he could have been good. David Harrison could have been good.

    Just a waste of talent. I do hope these guys figure it out and get their lives together.

    First off, this is not really aimed at you Dave.

    But...

    That is what people have said over and over since his first problems arose.

    I remember so many people kept on saying he didn't really do anything that bad, or it was just immaturity, or just his friends and not him, or even up to the accusation that the police were "profiling" him.

    My take? The guy is simply a bad egg and a moron. I am so glad he is not with the Pacers anymore that I can't even express how happy I am that he is long gone.

    The Mavs, much like the Pacers, quickly became disenchanted by Williams' lifestyle off the court.

    Mavs security personnel and Dallas law enforcement began to warn the organization about Williams' personal behavior.

    Williams downplayed his social life and insisted he was always ready to perform.

    "A lot of stuff I did three years ago, I won't do right now," Williams said. "You get older and grow up. That's life. I had a lot of problems when I first got into the NBA but I was young. I feel like I haven't gotten into any trouble not to be on the court. I'm finally not getting into trouble and I'm not on the court. That's mind-boggling."
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I don't. This isn't the first time he's exhibited horrible judgement. He's done. I honestly hope this is the last time I ever hear about him. He wanted to live the type of lifestyle he's living, so let him do it out of the NBA and away from the public (and in prison). Serves him right.

    I agree.

    Playing devil's advocate: could it be that he quit but these indictments are related to previous behavior?

    He's an criminal with criminal friends and an okay jump shot. Big whoop.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    That would suck...

    But then it's more likely, if he quit, it's because he knew he was about to get busted.

    Why are people using green text like this lately? Does it denote sacasm? I don't get it.

    In the Quick Reply box there is an "A" that is underlined with a drop down arrow beside it (in the gray area above the blank area for your text). If you click on it it will bring up a box of various colors you can choose. You can either choose the color and then type within the codes it automatically brings up... or you can type what you want to say and then highlight with a swipe (holding down the left mouse button), and then choose the drop down arrow beside the "A". It will then automatically insert the codes for your chosen color on each side of the selected text.
