As cited in a report by Californiawatch.org, Bengals offensive lineman Anthony Collins and receiver Jerome Simpson were detained and questioned at Simpson’s home Tuesday after another person at the house signed for a delivery package that contained a 2.5 pound bag of high-grade marijuana from California.

No arrests were made, according to the report, but authorities called it a controlled delivery to a house that was set up as a distribution network. Inside the northern Kentucky home, police allegedly found six more pounds of marijuana, empty parcels, scales and packaging material.

More from the story:

In recent years, drug agents have stepped up efforts to intercept California-grown pot being shipped out of state by drug-trafficking organizations seeking higher profits.

Michelle Gregory, spokeswoman for the California Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, said the operation was initiated by a special marijuana task force after agents discovered a suspicious package at a commercial sorting facility in Sacramento.

The agents then alerted law enforcement in Kentucky, who intercepted the package and monitored its delivery. Barb Schempf, spokeswoman for the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, confirmed that airport police participated in the controlled delivery but declined further comment, citing the ongoing investigation.


Said Bengals spokesman Jack Brennan: “There’s nothing of substance in the development of rumors that we’re aware of. There’s nothing to hang a hat on at this point.”

Federal prosecutors as well as Kentucky state and local law enforcement are continuing to investigate. 

According to the report, Simpson wrote on his Twitter account that his supposed arrest was "100% rumor." That account apparently has been deleted since.

@The Mick...
That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.  Just because something grows naturally in the earth doesn't mean we HAVE to smoke it.  What kind of logic is that.  A tree grows naturally in the earth, so does that mean we should be forced to eat bark for dinner?  Salt water is natural, so does that mean we HAVE to drink it? The point he was trying to make is if we want to smoke something that grows naturally in the earth, we should have the right.

For those saying it's ok because "it grows naturally on the earth" let me ask you: would you like to chew/smoke the nightshade plant?  How about hemlock?  They both "grow naturally on the earth."  And they're both fatal poisons!

Your logic is like the woman who say footprints on beach sand, saw the heel lower than the toes, and concluded shoes should be designed so the toes are higher than the heel because that's what "nature" does!  It didn't occur that it meant the heel needs more support!

How dumb can Simpson be to have pot delivered to his house and using it as a "distribution" center and have scales and paraphernelia? What, doesn't his NFL salary pay him enough to avoid exactly what can make him lose an NFL career?  Plain DUMB.  He'd be a little smarter to just be a consumer and get it from his buddies on the street.  Oh well, they can't all be all stars whether they're on or off the field.

Seriously, just legalize it already.

I know this is going to create some kind of sh*t storm simply because it is a banned substance in the state of Ohio. All these people are going to come out looking for Jerome Simpson and Anthony Collins heads. It is a plant that grows here on God's green earth for Christ's sake!

Plenty of people are going to talk about "Moral Judgment" and what not in the hopes of slanderizing the so called "Bungles".

This is just ridiculous.

Oh no! Not a plant that grows naturally on this earth which all you have to do is pull the bud off and smoke! Whereas alcohol is a huge, long process and leaves you feeling like crap. Good God Almighty. You can get trashed on alcohol everyday and wake up and go to work hungover, but you can't smoke a plant that grows naturally AND cures hangovers? I say everyone should meet at their local downtown and smoke up in civil disobedience so it's finally legalized. Arcane laws are still prevalent in supposedly "free countries."

Can we just legalize this stuff already. Plenty of people have access to it. Maybe if it was legalized we could stop wasting time, money, and effort on it. People would actually have to get a job rather than sneaking around making big bucks while everyone else is working for a living. People die over the distribution of this stuff. Legalize it, tax it, move on to the next "crime".
