The Ironing is Delicious

Former UC Basketball star Corie Blount has been arrested on drug charges.

With a name like Blount (pronounced like the Philly version) it was only a matter of time until this news story became a reality.


Authorities learned that a package of marijuana from out of state was scheduled to be mailed to an address on Serenity Place in Liberty Township.

Sheriff's deputies, working with federal agents and Middletown police, scheduled what they called a controlled delivery of the marijuana to the residence on Thursday.

They said that Blount arrived at the residence to retrieve the package, which contained 11 pounds of marijuana.

[11 pounds... wow Corey, that's no messing around, wait, what? There's more?]

"Blount was followed to his residence where deputies stopped him and arrested him," the news release says.

Police searched Blount's home and the residence where the package was delivered. At Blount’s residence, deputies said they found a second package of marijuana containing about 11 pounds of marijuana.

[Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo-stick 11 MORE POUNDS!!! Wow Corey 22 LBS of P-O-T!!! That's a lot even for a former UC Bearcat & NBA Player... hold up.. what's this MORE HERB?!?!?!]

Authorities say a third package was also found that contained seven pounds of marijuana.

[Jesus, Mary & Snoop Dog Corey that's... hold on I need to get out my abacus... TWENT FUCKIN NINE POUNDS OF JAH'S SWEET HERB!!!]

In addition to confiscating the 29 pounds of marijuana, the Butler County Sheriff's Office confiscated $29,500 in cash, three vehicles and three guns.

The marijuana has an estimated street value of $52,200, said Butler County Sheriff's Detective Mike Hackney. More charges are possible, he said.

Blount, who played on UC's 1992 Final Four team and the school's Elite Eight team in 1993, was the Chicago Bulls' first-round draft pick in 1993. He played on five different NBA teams before returning to the Bulls' roster in 2002-03, according to
