Big 10 football player charged with dealing heroin

Posted: Updated:

A Big 10 football player has been kicked off his team and now faces serious charges.

He's accused of dealing heroin and cocaine.

Antonio Allen led Indiana in tackles last year and was expected to be a key player on this year's team. He was arrested within a block of the football stadium in Bloomington.

Court documents show Indiana State Police worked with an informant who bought drugs from Allen twice.

"I'm an IU graduate. We're all Hoosiers around here. We all get behind our teams and want them to do good. He's 20 years old. Now that he's an adult, he's going to have to answer for these charges and it's very sad," said Sgt. Curt Durnil, Indiana State Police.

If he's convicted, Allen faces 10 to 30 years in prison on each charge he faces.
