On the evening before the annual Wing Bowl in Philadelphia, a five-time competition winner nicknamed “El Wingador” was indicted on drug charges based on his arrest last year related to cocaine. As a result of the arrest and the man’s alleged involvement in drugs, he was banned from this year’s Wing Bowl competition. A spokesperson for the competition noted that it was for the man’s benefit that his involvement in the event be downplayed while he works through his legal issues.
The incident originally occurred in June of 2012, when “El Wingador” was arrested in relation to several drug related offenses including the distribution of drugs. The man, originally from Woodbury Heights, NJ spent 10 days in jail when police officers discovered $8,000 worth of powdered cocaine and $4,000 cash in his car. At the time, the man issued a public apology to his family and fans asking them not to judge him based on his mistakes. The indictment charges issued last week include four counts of possession of a controlled dangerous substance and one count of manufacturing or distributing of more than five ounces of cocaine, a first-degree crime with a sentencing range of 10 to 20 years in prison.
