Patriots Lineman Reportedly Participated in DEA Sting After Prescription Drug Arrest
There's more controversy for the New England Patriots.
The Boston Globe reported today that Patriots offensive tackle Nick Kaczur was arrested in April for illegal possession of prescription painkillers. Kaczur subsequently assisted Drug Enforcement Administration agents by wearing a hidden recording device to gather evidence against his alleged supplier, the Globe reported.
Kaczur could be disciplined under the NFL's substance abuse policy if it is found that he misused prescription pain medication.
According to the report, Kaczur was purchasing 100 OxyContin pills every few days beginning last November.
The Globe reported that Kaczur denied involvement in the DEA sting operation or purchasing pain medication without a prescription.
"I don't know what you're talking about, bro," Kaczur told the newspaper. "I don't know where this is coming from. I don't know what you are talking about."
