Looks like NFL commissioner ROGER GOODELL may have to break out his ruler again. Cincinnati Bengals players JEROME SIMPSON and ANTHONY COLLINS were questioned by authorities Tuesday when a package containing 2.5 pounds of marijuana arrived at Simpson’s home in Crestview, Kentucky.
According to state narcotics agents, an sting operation was set up to monitor the shipment of high-grade marijuana after in was intercepted in Sacramento, which originated in an area of Northern California, and followed its delivery which led to the NFL players’ home in Kentucky. The package was signed for by a third man, Aleen Smith.
All three men were questioned about the delivery but no arrests were made at the time.
According to the report, police allegedly found six more pounds of marijuana inside Simpson’s home, other empty parcels, scales and packaging material.
“The house was set up as a potential distribution network,” said Tommy LaNier, head of the National Marijuana Initiative, a group that is funded by the Office of National Drug Control Policy and helps coordinate marijuana enforcement operations around the United States.
Although no arrests were made, an ongoing investigation continues in the case. Simpson remains tight-lipped about the incident, claiming “100% rumor” on his Twitter page at this time.
It’s kinda hard to refute that Simpson is totally innocent in this case being that the package was sent directly to his home and signed for by his associate, Smith. Not to mention the six pounds of gunja that was allegedly present at Simpson’s home when the shipment arrived.
We’ll see where this one goes but at the very least, Simpson and Collins will have some splainin’ to do.
