MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Shawne Williams, a first-round NBA draft pick in 2006, was arrested on drug charges late Thursday after an officer patrolling a parking lot at a suburban Memphis mall smelled marijuana coming from a car, authorities said.

The Commercial Appeal reports that the officer asked Williams to get out of a Porsche. Police reported finding a partially smoked marijuana cigar, another blunt and a bottle of codeine cough syrup not prescribed to Williams.

Online jail records show the 26-year-old Williams was charged with possession of marijuana and possession of a controlled substance with intent to manufacture, deliver or sell. The newspaper reports he was not charged with cocaine possession, as was originally reported due to a clerical error in a Shelby County Jail database.

Online records indicate he was released on bond Friday. He has a Monday court appearance.

Williams was drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 2006 after spending a season at Memphis. He has played 215 career games, including 25 with the Nets last season.
