BOSTON (AP) - An attorney says New England Patriots lineman Nicholas Kaczur (ka-ZUR') was arrested on drug charges, then helped federal authorities in a sting operation that led to the indictment of a supplier.
Kaczur was arrested in New York in April on a misdemeanor charge of illegal possession of oxycodone.
The alleged dealer, Daniel Ekasala (eck-ah-SAH'-lah), was arrested last month and faces arraignment Wednesday. Court documents show an unnamed cooperating witness wore a hidden recording device during three drug transactions with Ekasala.
On Wednesday, Ekasala's lawyer, Bernard Grossberg, identified the cooperating witness as Kaczur.
The Boston Globe reports Kaczur denies knowledge of the investigation.
