In September 2011, Bengals receiver Jerome Simpson was detained after a shipment of marijuana allegedly arrived at his home. Forgotten in a season that included Simpson taking a dive and making a flip, the only flipping Simpson may soon be doing is on his supplier.
According to WLWT, Simpson has been indicted on one count of trafficking marijuana by a grand jury in Kentucky.
He faces one to five years in prison.
Simpson’s girlfriend, Aleen Smith, allegedly signed for 2.5 pounds of “high-grade” marijuana.
A second-round pick in 2008, Simpson is due to become a free agent in March. And that could be the last time the word “free” is used in reference to Simpson for quite some time.
