I never realized how far society's morals and values have been eroded until I read about drug addicted horses hanging their heads in shame. These are the types of hoodlums that prey on the weak in society and perpetuate the inaccurate and harmful stereotypes that all horses are drug addicts and don't contribute to society. The lying cheats...

Some Indiana Racehorses Test Positive for Cocaine
Dec 8, 2005, 05:46 PM

There is new information about cheating allegations involving Indiana racehorses.

As many as 14 horses have tested positive for cocaine.

The Indiana Horse Racing Commission shows positive tests on four horses. The past president of the Horsemen’s Benevolent and Protective Association reports as many as a dozen other positive test results.

Some experts say cocaine can be passed to a horse just through contact with a human user. A Purdue equine veterinarian says that's a long shot and that some will do anything to fix a race.

Man critical after ingesting cocaine following arrest

A Lafayette man is in critical condition at St. Elizabeth Medical Center after, police suspect, he either breathed in or swallowed cocaine. It's unknown how much may have been ingested.

Lafayette police arrested Williams P. Starks Jr., 25, and Brittney Helton, 20, early Wednesday morning after finding drugs and weapons from an apartment in the 1100 block of State Street. Both had been living in the residence.

After taking the two to the Tippecanoe County Jail, staff there found a bag of cocaine hidden inside Starks' rectum, detective Sgt. Jim Taul said.

Starks was taken to St. Elizabeth to have it removed, but on the way there he somehow gained access to it, Lt. Chris Downard said. During a struggle with jail staff to remove the cocaine from Starks' mouth, some of the cocaine may have been swallowed, Downard said.

The two were arrested after Officer Joe Clyde spotted a white Cadillac sedan driving erratically near Valley Drive about 1 a.m. Wednesday.

Clyde tried to stop the vehicle but the driver fled at a high rate of speed, and Clyde chose to not initiate a pursuit, Downard said. Clyde later found the vehicle, with a highly intoxicated person passed out inside, parked on State Street, Downard said.

Starks and Helton were arrested on suspicion of dealing cocaine, possession of cocaine, dealing marijuana, possession of marijuana and possession of controlled substances. Starks also was arrested on suspicion of resisting law enforcement.

Police recovered nearly a pound of marijuana, about 29 grams of cocaine, about 10 tablets of what police believe is Ecstasy, three handguns and a shotgun during the investigation.

Helton is being held at the jail on a $50,000 surety bond. Starks will be taken to jail upon his release from the hospital.
