According to police, an officer on a routine patrol outside of an electronics store noticed that the smell of marijuana permeated the air and seemed to be wafting from the direction of a parked Porsche Panamera sedan.  When the policeman approached the expensive car, Williams was inside. The 26-year-old immediately thought he should fess up to the law enforcer by stating, “Officer I ain’t gonna lie to you, there’s a blunt in the car and some syrup.”

When the policeman searched the vehicle, he reportedly stumbled upon a partially smoked blunt, another that had not been touched, and a bottle of codeine-based cough syrup, which didn’t have a prescription.

It seems that Williams’ current run-in with the law was not his first.

The former Indiana Pacer, Dallas Mavericks, New Jersey Nets, New York Knicks, Portland, Trailblazer has had several drug-related arrests in his past.  The player’s most-recent arrest occurred as recent as 2010, when he faced felony drug charges for selling a codeine substance.

The story is still developing.
