Nick Kaczur Drug Details Revealed

Patriots offensive lineman Nicholas Kaczur had 202 Oxycontin pills imprinted with letters indicating they were Canadian-made stuffed in his pocket when he was arrested by New York State Police in April, according to police reports.

He’s currently facing just one charge of criminal possession of a controlled substance in the seventh degree, which is just a misdemeanor. He cooperated with federal authorities in nailing his alleged drug dealer to get a vastly reduced charge.

His OxyContin dealer, Daniel Ekasala, says that he’s not the source of Kaczur’s pills because his pills are not imprinted with Canadian markings. Ekasala faces a lot of legal trouble which includes charges of possession with intent to distribute.

Where does Kaczur go from here?

According to the Globe, Patriots spokesman Stacey James released a statement:

“I will confirm that he is still on the team, but we are not providing additional comment.”

My thoughts: If I know the Patriots well, I would assume that Kaczur will probably be cut. That’s a lot of pills…and if it turns out that his alleged dealer isn’t the supplier of the 202 pills he was arrested with, he loses all credibility and faces a heightened charge, which would probably lead to a suspension from the NFL.
