    Shawne Williams
    Ex-NBA Star Arrested for Coke

    Breaking News
    Ex-NBA player Shawne Williams -- a former 1st round draft pick -- was arrested in Tennessee last night for possession of weed and cocaine ... and cops believe he may have been trying to sell it.

    According to reports, Williams' night went to hell when an officer on a routine patrol claims he smelled marijuana coming from a Porsche Panamera which was parked near a Cricket wireless store.

    When the cop approached the car, the person inside -- Williams -- reportedly said, "Officer I ain't gonna lie to you, there's a blunt in the car and some syrup."

    The cop searched the car ... and reportedly found a partially smoked blunt, another blunt that hadn't been smoked, and a bottle of codeine cough syrup (for which he did not have a prescription).

    The 26-year-old was ultimately arrested for possession of weed and coke with intent to manufacture, deliver or sell.

    Whew! No mention of the Pacers in that article. I'm sure there will be by the time ESPN gets a hold of the story.

    I know he's brought this on himself but in some ways I really feel sorry for Shawnee Williams. I usually don't feel that way about players when they mess up and get arrested for it. He deserves to be arrested but how is this not just a possessions charge? They found a blunt and some Codeine syrup and that equals intent to manufacture, deliver or sell?

    This might be the first time a report of his legal troubles did not mention the Pacers at all (whether he was still on our team when it happened or not)!

    And they even had the opportunity and didn't take it when they said he was a former first round pick...

    Is this also the first time that he didn't have a passenger to pass the legal buck to?

    Most likely trying to play some legal shenanigans. It is quite common to overcharge a person to increase their odds of getting you on something, or to make the lesser charge seem more obvious and reasonable.

    Cocaine's a hell of a drug.
    Yes it is but what I don't get is that the article never mentions that the police found any cocaine. It said they found a weed and codeine syrup, which you can get with a prescription. I'm guessing there's more to this story than TMZ reported.

    I had no idea that was a synonym for scrub.
    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

    We could have drafted Rondo instead of Williams at 17 I believe?

    It is especially irritating since everyone knew our primary need was a point guard. They kept drafting "the best player available." Did it for several years in a row, and for several years we had scrubs for point guards.

    And scrubs for "best player available"?

    Weed + syrup = cocaine? They should tell the whole story.

    so next time I am pulled over by a police officer, I need to declare I have some cough syrup that I just picked up at CVS as I have a little bit of a cold? Why? so the officer doesn't get to close for fear of catching my cold.

    Officer you better stand back I have Robitusin in my car.

    True, but you're not taking the codeine cough syrup for a little bit of a cold, and I wouldn't attempt to operate any machinery if I were on it.

    There seems to be a disconnect between the article and the charges, assuming that the cocaine part of the charges wasn't a mis-print.

    Some people are just failures. Shawne is clearly one of those people. Also, this is why PG needs to get rid of his Panamera. It's a stupid car for stupid people.

    You can't buy cough syrup with Codeine over the counter... codeine is a narcotic that was used in the old days much more liberally before the Shawne Williams' of the world began to abuse it...

    Oh, oops. I was just wondering if you had missed the fact that it wasn't ordinary Robitussin.
