Patriots offensive tackle Nick Kaczur was arrested in April on illegal possession of prescription painkillers, then he worked with the DEA in a sting operation that resulted in the indictment of his supplier. In other words, according to Carmelo Anthny, Kaczur is due for stitches.
Kaczur… wore a hidden recording device during three different drug transactions in May at gas stations in Foxborough and North Attleborough and a supermarket parking lot in Sharon, according to the lawyer, the two people, and federal court documents. At each of the three transactions, Kaczur paid $3,900 in cash to buy 100 OxyContin pills, a potent prescription pain reliever…
0 for a single OxyContin pill? Now THAT is a crime.
[Attorney Bernard] Grossberg said that, according to DEA documents presented to him before the indictment, Kaczur said he had begun buying OxyContin in November 2007 and purchased 100 pills every few days, paying tens of thousands of dollars over time.
So lemme get this straight. A starting offensive lineman in the NFL can't get a prescription for OcyContin? His entire job is getting hit by athletic freaks of nature. How does that not merit a couple painkillers? Or a couple hundred. Every few days. Okay maybe he has a problem.
