Nick Kaczur, offensive lineman for the New England Patriots, was arrested in April on a charge of illegal possession of the prescription painkiller, oxycodone. He participated in a drug sting that netted alleged dealer Daniel Ekasala:
Kaczur - a 28-year-old, 315-pound offensive tackle - wore a hidden recording device during three different drug transactions in May at gas stations in Foxborough and North Attleborough and a supermarket parking lot in Sharon, according to the lawyer, the two people, and federal court documents. At each of the three transactions, Kaczur paid $3,900 in cash to buy 100 OxyContin pills, a potent prescription pain reliever.
Federal agents arrested the alleged dealer, Daniel Ekasala, moments after the third transaction with Kaczur, said Ekasala's lawyer. He was indicted by a federal grand jury yesterday on three counts of possession of oxycodone (the main ingredient in the prescription drug OxyContin) with intent to distribute. He is due to be arraigned today in federal court.
HGH with Rodney Harrison then Kevin Faulk is found with marijuana after the Super Bowl, now this. Here we go. The New England Patriots are a bunch of drug addicts. Well, let he who is without sin cast the first stone. Trust me, a simple Google of just about any other team will turn up a plethora of goodies.
That being said, I'm mad as all get out. Why can't these guys stay away from this stuff? Don't they realize how much damage it does, not to mention how much damage control the Patriots organization, and us fans, has to do? Jeez, become a monk for 10 years and ride out your career with a clean nose.
