El Wingador Busted For Coke

By
El Wingador's mighty mullet, circa February 2010.

It’s doubtful that Bill “El Wingador” Simmons will be stuffing his face full of Buffalo wings any time in the near future. The five-time Wing Bowl champ, who retired from the competitive eating circuit earlier this year, was picked up earlier today in Harrison, NJ and charged with first-degree cocaine distribution. Gloucester County Times reports that police seized $8,000 worth of the white stuff, and $4,000 in cash from his Wingadormobile. The not-so-routine traffic stop was reportedly part of a month-long cooperative investigation between New Jersey State Police and the Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office. Simmons is currently being held on $100,000 full-cash bail. With all that coke and cash keeping him busy, it's no wonder he hung up his chicken wing-eating career. [GCT]
