ESPN – Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Jerome Simpson was indicted on drug charges Thursday in Covington, Ky., The Cincinnati Enquirer reported.
The indictment charges Simpson with trafficking in more than eight ounces and less than five pounds of marijuana, a felony, Commonwealth’s Attorney Rob Sanders told the newspaper. Simpson could face one to five years in prison if convicted.
The indictment comes nearly four months after federal authorities confiscated a package containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana that was allegedly shipped from California to Simpson’s northern Kentucky home. Investigators said they also found six more pounds of marijuana inside the house, as well as drug paraphernalia such as packaging materials, scales and smoking devices.
Ugh, why does ESPN have to sound so white. Smoking devices? Just act like a human and say bong and joint papers in the write up.
I doubt this will tarnish Simpson’s incredible leaping touchdown that occurred earlier this year though. Guy likes to smoke a little green, so what? A little nine pounds of green.
Actually that’s an issue. Lock this son of a bitch up for life.
