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.

If all they did was find it on his person, how do they know he was trying to sell it?

Sounds to me like he was using it himself, which is of course punishable, but I don't see any evidence of him trying to sell it.

What has happened to Journalism?.... :bang:

Ex NBA Star?
Weed?..... really?
The Cop searched the car?
Blunt? (not in Williams' quote but the actual "reporting")

ugh.... it's no wonder I don't read most of the drivel the so called media puts out......

As for the actual charge.... it's typically quantity driven on the "intent to distribute" charge. A decent attorney will get that reduced in all likelihood.

He was straight up with the cop and had some recreational drugs for personal use. How is this a big deal, and why are we wasting tax dollars fighting this?

EX-NBA STAR SHAWNE WILLIAMS
PLEADS GUILTY
The Weed Was Mine!
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-NBA player Shawne Williams has pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance following his December arrest ... when cops busted him for smoking a blunt inside his Porsche.

As TMZ previously reported ... Williams was popped in a parking lot in Tennessee after a cop said he smelled weed coming from inside Williams' Panamera. Williams reportedly confessed to the officer that he had weed and codeine (cough syrup) in his car.

Following the arrest, Williams was charged with possession of a controlled substance (for the weed) and possession with intent to sell (for the codeine).

Williams pled guilty to weed possession today and was sentenced to one day in jail and a $500 fine. He was given credit for time served and has already paid the fee.

The codeine charge was dropped after the passenger in Williams' car claimed it was his ... not Williams'.

The lesson: always have a friend around to share the blame.

This guy had a great season with the Knicks and then cashed in so he could go back to his old ways. Pathetic. He shouldn't even have a Porsche.
