OT: Shawne Williams arrested for Codeine 

Post#1 » by Knicks_Fan2 » Fri Dec 14, 2012 12:06 pm

Well, things really fell off the rails for him after he decided to not resign with the Knicks, huh.


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.

Damn, what a shame. Too bad things didn't work out for him in the NBA, but more importantly I hope he gets his life back together at least.

sad. Also I wish these athletes would be forced to have half their salary put into an annuity that gets paid over their lifetime.

In other news Lakers looking for an athletic forward who can defend and shoot 3's.

Habits are HARD to change. It really takes a TON of conditioning/learning to get rid of bad ones. That's what Purp is going through

Kids, if you're 6'5+ just work on your corner 3s. There will be a place for you in the NBA.

That's too perfect of a solution for it to ever happen. Fans and players alike start yelling "slavery" anytime raising the age limit is brought up, they'd never support a regulation that benefits players.

So was it codeine or cocaine? The dumbasses at TMZ wrote two different things. I'm guessing it was codeine because it was Purp.

Speaking of Donnie, I'm surprised he didn't give Shawne a shot on the Pacers. He loves former players he drafted.

Sad to hear. Should have resigned in NY, he'd probably still be in the league. Good luck, Purp.

There's a big difference between perscription cough syrup and cocaine. Which was it?

Damn purp, not surprised at all.

Don't let your car smell like weed, probable cause is a B*TCH.

I'm pretty sure it's not cocaine. Likely just weed and cough syrup. That's why we called him "Purp."

I also doubt he had the intent to sell. TMZ sensationalizing again.
