Report: Former Michigan State CB busted for allegedly selling heroin
A former Michigan State cornerback has been arrested for selling heroin to an undercover cop earlier this week.
According to the New York Daily News, Diego Oquendo was busted on May 25 during an undercover buy in Staten Island, New York. He was jailed and held on $10,000 bail.
Oquendo was an assistant football coach at his former high school, Tottenville HS, at the time of the arrest. He graduated from the school in 2004 and went on to play college football at Michigan State.
He only played in 14 games with the Spartans.
Two others were arrested in connection with the undercover bust, according to the report. But Oquendo’s attorney, William Leykam, said his client wasn’t connected to the drugs from the sale, just the cash.
“I think they’re going to have very strong problems with this case, end of story,” he said.
Oquendo was fired by the Department of Education following the reports of his arrest.
