Former NFL player Reche Caldwell arrested again in Tampa


Former NFL player again under arrest

Former pro football player Donald Reche Caldwell, a standout wide receiver at the University of Florida and Jefferson High School in Tampa, is in trouble with the law again.

Caldwell, 35, was arrested Tuesday on a charge of possession of a controlled substance with intent to sell. Jail records indicate he had the drug ecstasy when he was arrested at 10420 N McKinley Drive, north of the Busch Gardens amusement park.

He was already facing charges from his arrest in January, when police say an undercover investigation found he was one of three ringleaders operating an illegal gambling operation in Tampa. He is facing charges of running an illegal gambling house and bookmaking.

Caldwell spent six seasons in the NFL with the San Diego Chargers, New England Patriots and Washington Redskins.
