DEA investigating Chargers' controlled substance records

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Drug Enforcement Agency is investigating the San Diego Chargers and Padres’ internal regulation of controlled substances.  The DEA intends to “verify the correctness” of the organizations’ records and inventories.

The news comes on the heels of Chargers safety Kevin Ellison’s May arrest for allegedly possessing 100 pills of Vicodin.  A source told 10 News in San Diego that Ellison “had a go-to doctor” or doctors to get drugs on request.  The search, which took place on Tuesday, is believed to be aimed strictly at prescription drugs.
“Currently, there are no administrative charges, criminal charges or indictments pending for any of the physicians or pharmacies where the warrants were served,” the DEA acknowledged.  10 warrants have been issued in San Diego county.
The Drug Enforcement Agency’s Controlled Substance Act requires physicians and pharmacies to keep compete records of all controlled substances that pass through their facilities, and the facilities for which they work.
The Chargers, so far, are not commenting.  The Padres say they “are looking into it” play baseball.

    Chargers are obviously JUICED! Merriman was a product of roids, Luis Castillo was busted with them before he was drafted, Rodney HGH Harrison probably started them when he was in San Diego, and now this guy. Where there is smoke there is fire!

    Yeah Wonka! The bolts are getting juiced on Vicodin! Nobody can get that kind of muscle tone without codeine, after all.

    Wonka, your comments are so stupid that I’m surprised they were even allowed to be posted. On second thought I’m not surprised. Stupid is as stupid does, and you are a reflection of the stupid mindset of PFT. Rodney hasn’t been in SD for many years before he was caught. That was more a factor of his age. Castillo guaranteed to give back his signing bonus if ever caught again after he was DRAFTED IN 2004. That’s six years ago, idiot. And yes Merriman did roids, but that’s one guy. ONE FRIGGIN GUY. You’re probably a Raiduh or Donko fan seething with jealousy that we’re going to kick your booty another year in a long line of booty kicking. Chargers dominate because they are GOOD! Rivers, Gates, Mathews, Phillips, Castillo, Jammer, Merriman and on and on are going to kick booty again and nothing the Raiduhs or Donks can do about it. And if you are a Cheatriot fan, ROFLMAO, cause they are going to be pathetic.

    Hankster, please define what you mean by the word “good.” If you mean good as in making it to the playoffs, losing in the playoffs and watching two other teams play in the SB then yes, the Chargers are “good.”
    When the Raiders and Broncos are “good” they always seem to make it to the SB and have the hardware to prove it.
    NSTFU!

    hankster, for all of this “booty kicking” that has been going on, how many rings have the Dolts accumulated? Looks like the seasons’ final results have been the same for the Chargers as it has been for the Broncos, Chiefs, And Raiders. Except 3 of those teams HAVE won a championship at one time or another.

    Looks like Wonka struck one of hankster’s nerves. hehehe….long live AJ?

    Big deal. I get 30 Vicodin and 20 muscle relaxers when my back locks up, and I’m just a low level IT schlub. Still, the Chargers do have their fair share of pharmacy abusers, spikers, cough syrup dealers, and guys that get shot to pieces by the police.

    I love Vicodin…. Gooooood stuff for pain. Yum yum yum…

    The Broncos and Raiders can’t hear your glop because they have their SUPERBOWL ring(S) in their ears.
    The Dolts are under achieving losers. Especially this crop of overpaid under producers. How do you lose to a low seed wild card when you have home field advantage and a bye week??????
    Don’t dis a team with multiple championship rings when all you got is dirty fingernails.

    How anybody still pretends that players are actually afraid of the NFL testing system is simply eating the party line.
    How any player gets caught in a web with more holes in it than a Politico Come To Jesus moment forgot to check in with the party line.
    Lawrence Taylor? He just does the party line… Yowza!

    bigbolt, I tried not to laugh at that since you’re obviously a SD fan, but that was good. My vote for post of the month. I’m still laughing.

    All you f-ing 22 year olds at this stupid website [no, not you shorty-Florio] who barely know how to use spellcheck, let along proof-read should take note — AGAIN — of just how poorly you do your job.

    Fact is we’re gonna kick donco and raiduh booty again next year. The raiduhs are so absolutely pathetic that we’ve beat them at least 14 times in a row. LT had to leave as he got so bored beating up on such a bunch of pathetic gangster wannabes. Only thing the doncos have to celebrate is some 50 year old qb’s birthday. Pathetic. That’s not even to mention the chefs who are so pathetic it’s not even worth mentioning.

    Hankster, try to win a playoff game before you start poppin off at the mouth (you lost to a rookie QB, where’s your awesome QB now?), douche! Face it, this is the best SD has ever been and you’re still over shadowed by four other teams in the AFC. Your team sucks! Even with the roids, nut sack!

    gangster wannabes? Check the police blotter, loser. The Broncos at least have a couple of trophies they can celebrate. Even the Chiefs, who are so pathetic they aren’t worth mentioning even though you mentioned them, have won something at some point in their history. The only thing the Chargers ever win is the preseason polls.

    @hankster
    LT didn’t leave because he was tired of “kicking but” He left because he wants a ring before he retires, one that he obviously isn’t going to get with the Chargers.
    LT: Yeah I love the Chargers but I’d like to actually win a superbowl.
    It’s pretty sad, not even fans here in SD support the Chargers half the time. “The chargers lost?! Quick hide all the bolts!”
    Really dude…dudette or whatever you may be, you are making yourself look like an idiot fool.
