APSU football player charged with selling steroids

CLARKSVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

There's a sign high above the Austin Peay State University campus advertising the first home football game of the season. The Governors will be taking to the field Saturday night without senior fullback Cody Tucker, a player charged with selling illegal steroids.

"We found out about it Wednesday morning," said Brad Kirtley, APSU Sports Information Director. "The student athlete was immediately and indefinitely suspended. We just have to wait until the legal process occurs to determine if the suspension is a termination or whether he'll be allowed back."
 
According to law enforcement officials, Tucker was arrested for selling 500 milligrams of liquid testosterone in a controlled sale by the 19th Judicial District Drug Task Force. Kirtley said, to his knowledge, no other players were involved in the sale of the steroids.

"His name was the only one that was arrested the other day, and that's all we know at this time," he explained.
 
When asked if the charges would mean any punishment to the Governors, a spokesperson with the Ohio Valley Conference told Channel 4 it is still too early in the investigation to make any calls.
