    San Diego Chargers safety Kevin Ellison arrested, released on US$10,000 bail

    http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/sports/football/san-diego-chargers-safety-kevin-ellison-arrested-released-on-us10000-bail-94797359.html

    REDONDO BEACH, Calif. - San Diego Chargers safety Kevin Ellison has been arrested in Redondo Beach on suspicion of possessing a controlled substance.
    Police say the 23-year-old was arrested Monday afternoon after he was stopped for speeding in a school zone near his former high school.
    Sgt. Peter Grimm says a search of Ellison's vehicle turned up 100 pills of Vicodin, which is a controlled substance. He was booked and released on US$10,000 bail.
    Grimm says Ellison didn't have a prescription and even if he did, it was an unusually large amount of pills for a pharmacist to distribute.
    Ellison played four seasons for Southern California and started nine games as a rookie for the Chargers in 2009. His older brother Keith is a linebacker for the Buffalo Bills.

    It surprises me a lot. I heard he was a really a strait arrow type guy, very smart, very motivated.

    No that was Oxycondn (sp?).

    From the swrnn article:

    Isn't it a BIGGER crime for getting busted for posession with intent to distribute IN A SCHOOL ZONE? He's screwed. As in, will NEVER play again kind of screwed.

    The last interview I heard with this guy was just after the draft and while he sounded pissed that the Bolts had selected Stuckey to challenge him he said all the right things. He sounded very confident about his abilities to become a bigtime member of the Chargers D. What is it with these guys?.

    Not to defend him, but 100 pills is not really that much. My wife gets perscriptions for 90 pills for her migrains. Now, she carries them around in her prescription bottle, not a plastic bag so I'd like to know how Ellison's were foundl.

    I have a prescription that is more than 100 but it they are always put into Bottle.

    I am not defending Ellison with my situation but this does not sound good at all.

    Charging him with distribution would indicate that the pills weren't in one container, whether bottle(s) or baggie(s). Like cbf said, the fact that he was pulled in a school zone certainly doesn't help the situation.

    Innocent until proven guilty doesn't necessarily fly in the AJ court of law. I'd say that Spillman & Stuckey better be ready to play. :yes:

    It is a bigger level of a crime but being stopped in the middle of the night in an area that is a school zone is very different from distribution within a school zone. The former is just chance, the latter has the intent to be there when kids are present. My guess is that part won't stick. Also with having 100 pills I am not sure if the DA would need to prove he planned on distributing pills or if that's a prima facie case for distribution. My guess is that that requires specific intent to distribute first and not just having a lot of pills

    Either this is a very big blow to Ellison and he'll start behind the 8-ball for sure. I don't think he'll just be cut outright but he'd have to have a hell of a camp with Stuckey just bombing it. If Stuckey has a good camp, Ellison is gone.

    Hmm... 100 pills actually doesn't seem all that much.

    Really.

    When I got out of the hospital 9 years ago, my doctor wrote me a prescription for 60 tablets of Vicodin and it could be refilled once in about a month's time. The prescription label said no more than two tablets per day.

    That means I could have possibly had as many as 120 pills in my possession, off a legal prescription, if I had refilled it and not taken any pills.

    I'll wait and see before condemning him.

    To me the more egregious offense is driving 40 in a 25 mph zone.

    If he drove the speed limit, he doesn't get pulled over, and the police don't see the Vicodin after a consented search.
