Antonio Allen, a safety on Indiana’s football team, was arrested Tuesday night and has been charged with dealing heroin, cocaine and meth. As a result, Allen was kicked off the team on Wednesday.
Indiana State Police investigated the matter and have some damning evidence against Allen.
More from David Woods of the Indianapolis Star:
Indiana State Police have video of Indiana University football player Antonio Allen selling drugs to an informant, according to court documents released Wednesday.
Police subsequently executed a search warrant at his apartment in the 400 block of E. 19th Street in Bloomington. They reported that they found a Colt .45 handgun, 47 grams of cocaine, 13 grams of heroin, three half-smoked blunts and $920 in cash.
Allen was arrested Tuesday while leaving Memorial Stadium – which is within a block of his apartment – and charged with dealing cocaine and with dealing heroin (over 10 grams) with a firearm. Both are Level 2 felonies. He also was charged with dealing methamphetamine, a lesser charge.
Allen was expected to be a key cog for Indiana on defense. After all, he was the team’s leading tackler. He is coming off a season in which he recorded 75 tackles, two interceptions and one sack. His loss will not help a team looking to turning it around.
The Hoosiers are coming off a season in which they finished 4-8 and just 1-7 in Big Ten play. Indiana will open their season at home against Southern Illinois on September 5.
