Author Cox (pictured center) was cuffed by the cops Tuesday after they identified him as one of the "primary dealers" in a narcotics and prescription drug ring in Seminole County, Fla., The Smoking Gun reports.
The 81-year-old was the ring leader of a group that resold pills provided by co-conspirators who were prescribed the drugs, according to police. They allege that Cox sold $1000 worth of Dilaudid during a six-month investigation that included undercover cops.
His 26-year-old grandson, Erick Blakey, was also arrested in the sting.
"Listen, son, all this is a big bunch of crap," Cox said in a TSG interview. He acknowledged having obtained Dilaudid for his grandson, but does not recall reselling the painkiller to anyone else.
"I'm 81-years-old. I've never been in trouble before in my life."
That's not true. He was arrested in 1983 in Orlando for lewd and lascivious behavior.
