JaMarcus Russell Arrest Was Part Of Two-Month Investigation

JaMarcus Russell was arrested on Monday for possession of a controlled substance. Specifically, he was in possession of codeine syrup without a prescription.

According to the Associated Press, the arrest was part of a two-month investigation.

Russell wasn't the target originally but his name came up "several times" according to the report. Several media outlets have said that there have been rumors surrounding Russell and codeine for some time but no hard evidence to support that.

Police are currently testing the codeine syrup found to determine how much was involved.

The investigation could lead to more arrests.
