DEA reviewing Chargers, Padres doctors

San Diego Union-Tribune, June 30, 2010

Doctors affiliated with the Chargers and Padres are under review by the Drug Enforcement Administration in an attempt to “verify the correctness” of how they regulate prescription drugs. “The physicians under review are affiliated with the San Diego Chargers and San Diego Padres organizations,” the DEA said in a statement. The DEA said no charges currently are pending. On Tuesday, the DEA served 10 administrative inspection warrants issued within San Diego County as part of the ongoing investigation. The move came about five weeks after Chargers safety Kevin Ellison was arrested and charged with one count of possession of a controlled substance after being stopped for speeding . Police said he had 100 Vicodin painkiller pills in his car.
