Scared Straight

Pacer Shawne Williams was sentenced today for driving without a license (for driving without ever, in his life, having a license). He was driving with two friends from his high school days, one with drugs and the other with guns.
The 6-foot-9 Williams, a first-round draft pick last year out of Memphis, was arrested Sept. 11 after a traffic stop in which marijuana was found in his car. One passenger was charged with possession of the drug and another was charged with handgun violations.

Williams showed Judge Linda E. Brown a new driver's license at the hearing, which was rescheduled after he failed to show up in court Friday. He told the judge he had overslept. She had threatened to issue a warrant for his arrest if he didn't show up Monday.

His penalty... oh, 40 days of community service.

I'm sure that will scare him straight.
