Bad News for Non-Pot Smoking Bengals Fans: Jerome Simpson's House Might be a Marijuana Distribution Center

This sign, in Jerome Simpson's front yard, gave him away.
If you're a Bengals player reading this right now, we have great news: you're probably going to get drug tested in the next 30 minutes and you can thank Jerome Simpson and Anthony Collins.

The two Bengals teammates are being investigated by Kentucky and California authorities after 2.5 pounds of high-grade marijuana was delivered from Northern California to Simpson's Northern Kentucky home.

You can read all about how police got involved here, but if you're lazy, we'll break it down into two sentences.

Authorities tracked the California marijuana shipment to Simpson's house where his girlfriend, Aleen Smith, signed for it. Police tracking the package then searched Simpson's home where they found six more pounds of marijuana, some packaging material and scales for weighing the pot.

"The house was setup as a potential distribution network," one investigator said.

Now, its not clear if Simpson was running an international drug cartel out of his house, but lets just say that 2.5 pounds of pot delivered to your house when you already have six pounds there is a good start for running one.

Simpson's house had more pot than the set of Half-Baked
Now, although Simpson's house had more marijuana than the set of Half-Baked, police didn't arrest anyone after four hours of interviews Tuesday, which in itself is interesting.

Eight pounds of pot and no one gets arrested? We'll let this one play out, but our best bet is that at least one of the three (Simpson, Collins or Simpson's girlfriend) involved here will eventually get busted.

Simpson closed his Twitter account (@Rome089) early Wednesday with one last tweet that read, "Keep the faith." Also, his personal web page no longer exists.

So there's that.

There are two pieces of good news here though:

1. Even if Simpson gets arrested, he's still won't be the worst NFL player turned criminal named Simpson (O.J. obviously wins that)

2. Simpson only had 8.5 pounds of pot in his house, its not like he had 213 pounds in a van, like a certain former Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman.

Finally, we here at INSIC would like to point out one odd coincidence: the marijuana shipped to Simpson's house came from Eureka, Calif., a town with a population of exactly 27,191.

So we asked ourselves, "Does Simpson, who is from North Carolina, know anyone from Eureka, Calif.?"

The answer is yes. Bengal middle linebacker Rey Maualuga has some ties to Eureka, he graduated from high school there in 2005. Coincidence? You tell us.


  1. I ran into Simpson at a concert over the summer. The opening band was a raggae band and he was accompanied by none other than Rey Maualuga. Domato Peko was also with them. Coincidence???

  2. The package had to be sent by Carson Palmer because it got intercepted.

  3. Yep, there is your 2nd rounder...and to think I was complaining just because he was a development project picked at #2. You know the sheriff is not going to wait for the law before suspending Simpson for at least 4 games and probably the season. Yep, the scouting dept. continues to prove why the Bengals are continually in the #1 draft pick hunt!

  4. Marijuana shipped from California? On the week the Bengals are playing the 49ers? I think we can all agree that Simpson is being framed.

    PS: Blogspot needs a "like" button because I really want to like all the comments so far. You hear that blogspot, get a f#cking like butting already.

  5. Exactly, john is right, there must be a like button here.

  8. It's very interesting post thanks for share.

  9. Nicely expressed via writing. Why don't we think about any drug rehab center for the people who became addict of such drugs or any particular types of habits? New York Drug Rehab center is the place where such kind of addicted people can reach and can recover from the drugs habit.

  10. Its really bad news for non-pot Smoking bengals fans.
