    <blockquote>By Brent Schrotenboer

    SAN DIEGO – The investigation that led to the arrest Tuesday of San Diego Chargers safety Terrence Kiel targeted his role in the diversion of Codeine-based cough syrup, according to the Drug Enforcement Administration.

    Authorities said Kiel, 25, was arrested on two charges of transporting a controlled substance and three charges of possession for sale of a controlled substance based on his having shipped at least two parcels containing the substance to his native Texas.

    The DEA said in a statement released Wednesday that Kiel admitted to shipping the two parcels and to knowing their contents. Kiel did not comment on the motive behind the shipments. But the DEA noted widespread abuse of Codeine-based cough syrup in Texas, mixed with soft drinks and referred to as "lean." A pint bottle can cost between $200-$325 per bottle on the street, according to the DEA.</blockquote>
