Former Tiger Shawne Williams Nipped with Bud ... Again 

Former Memphis Tiger basketball star Shawne Williams -- now with the NBA Indiana pacers -- was pulled over in Indianapolis yesterday and charged with window tint and seatbelt violations. A passenger in Williams' car, Darryl Smith, 21, of Memphis, was charged with possession of a small amount of marijuana.
