Post-Fight Police Probe of Colorado State Football Players Turns up Anabolic Steroids

Remember the three Colorado State football players who were suspended for allegedly beating up a few freshman earlier this month? Since the violent assault, the police have been investigating the players, and they released a troubling police report this week – anabolic steroids were found at the residence of two players, according to the Denver Post.

Included in the 90-page police report was a description of foil packages marked as anabolic steroids that were found in Paulhus’ residence, along with hypodermic needles labeled with a prescription made out to Paulhus. Paulhus, who told police he had a prescription to take the steroids to treat low testosterone levels, could not produce the prescription but did admit to police the content of what they found.

In Orakpo’s room, police found nine unmarked vials (eight in a refrigerator) as well as syringes, three of which were used. They were sent to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation for testing, according to the report. When interviewed along with attorney Erik Fischer by the police, Orakpo was asked if those vials could present a problem for him. Fischer interjected and said they could but disagreed with their being collected as evidence.

Orakpo is the younger brother of Washington Redskins defensive end Brian. Marijuana was also found at the residence of both CSU players, but neither could be tied directly to the athletes because they both have roommates. Probably not the way coach Jim McElwain envisioned his first few months on the job going. [Post]
