San Diego Padres team doctors — as well as team doctors for the San Diego Chargers — are under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Agency over the “correctness” of how they regulate prescription
drugs, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune. As part of this investigation, the DEA served 10 warrants on various team offices and facilities yesterday, including Padres’ HQ.
What, exactly, they’re investigating is rather murky. What we do know is that a Chargers’ player — Kevin Ellison — was stopped for a traffic violation a few weeks ago and 100 Vicodins were found in his car, and generally speaking, people don’t have 100 Vicodins with them at a time.
A lot of football and baseball teams which share a city share at least some part of their medical staffs too, so it’s possible that the search of Padres facilities is related to football stuff. Of course, since the Chargers are in the NFL and, based on everything I’ve read in the past seven or eight years, the NFL has no drug problems whatsoever, it’s probably another baseball plot designed to ruin America’s hopes and dreams.
All we really know at this point is that we don’t know anything.
