An Antioch, Tenn., woman is being charged with extortion in her dealings with Tennessee Titans receiver Damian Williams, according to The Tennessean.


Police told the newspaper that 22-year old Shelley Anne David faces one count of extortion for attempting to coerce Williams into paying her $5,000.

David filed a domestic assault complaint against Williams earlier this month. She then told Williams she wouldn't pursue things further for $5,000. He arranged a meeting with her Monday that was monitored by undercover police officers.

The assault warrant has been canceled due to the circumstances and questions about David's credibility, a police spokesman said.
