Ex-Pacer Williams Locked Up

by July 25, 2010

Some cats can’t catch a break, and it costs them big time. Add Shawne Williams to that list, if you hadn’t already. ESPN has the story: “Troubled former Indiana Pacers forward Shawne Williams has been arrested after police found marijuana and a loaded gun in the car he was driving.Memphis police say Williams and his former University of Memphis teammate Kareem Cooper were pulled over in a Dodge Charger on Friday because Williams wasn’t wearing a seat belt. He was charged with driving on a suspended license. Police then searched the car and say they found more than 17 grams of marijuana and a gun on Cooper. Police said they did not know whether the two men have attorneys. The Pacers chose Williams with their first-round draft pick in 2006, but his NBA career has been marred by numerous off-court issues, arrests and weight problems.”
