Rondell Biggs's vehicle hid his suspended license and a big bag of 'roids when Michigan cops stopped the former Michigan football player last January. (MLive.com) Turns out Biggs was following sprinter Ben Johnson now on his 20th anniversary of Winny use at the Olympics. "Biggs"...perfect name for a Winny user.
Rondell Biggs, 24, was stopped by state troopers Jan. 24 on I-94 near State Street for illegally tinted windows on his vehicle. Biggs was arrested for driving on a suspended license, and troopers searched his car prior to impounding it.
Trooper Craig Ziecina said in a press release that he found 10 yellow pills in the center console of the vehicle in a bag that had a label indicating it contained 50 pills. Biggs told Ziecina they were "post-workout pills" and said he was in Michigan assisting with the training and conditioning of the U-M football team.
Biggs said he coached Michigan players -- under the Lloyd Carr regime. Rich Rod let him go.
U-M football spokesperson Dave Ablauf said this morning that Biggs was employed as an hourly worker by U-M's football staff under former head coach Lloyd Carr, but was not retained when coach Rich Rodriguez and conditioning coach Mike Barwis took over the program after U-M's bowl game on Jan. 1.
Ablauf said Biggs was likely working out with other former U-M athletes who are either pro players or have pro aspirations and use the Wolverine training facilities in the offseason.
Rich Rod didn't want to be 'Rich Roid'?
The pills later tested positive for stanozolol, a Schedule III prescribed synthetic anabolic steroid. It is commonly used by athletes and bodybuilders to lose fat while retaining lean body mass. Ben Johnson was stripped of his gold medal in the 100 meters at the 1988 Summer Olympics when he tested positive for the drug.
Hail to the Dopers, huh?
