With every Chargers or Padres fan buzzing about the recent drug scandal, a timely statement of denial was to be expected. This is a statement from the San Diego Chargers on the recent administrative inspection by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
The San Diego Chargers were made aware today of an administrative inspection by the Drug Enforcement Administration and have cooperated fully.
In regards to the ongoing investigation involving Kevin Ellison, the Vicodin in Kevin’s possession was not provided by the Chargers, its physicians or anyone affiliated with the team.
Quick, and to the point. As well as vague and unenlightening. It’s not like Ellison is saying anything either. He has declined to make any comments on the matter since he signed with Seattle post-ejection from the Chargers roster.
However, doesn’t it seem that with the Chargers denying all involvement, evidence collected from Ellison will either incriminate, or exonerate, the Chargers and their associates. At the moment, both sides are remaining quiet and seeing what evidence the D.E.A. comes up with.
This will either turn out to be a conspiracy similar to what the New Orleans Saints went through, or it will be over quickly and we will see what action is taken against Ellison.
