Louisville Division of Police detectives later dropped a felony charge against Brock Lesnar, the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) champion, after arresting him in January 2001 for illegally possessing steroids. According to official reports, the 26-year-old athlete allegedly received and opened a parcel that authorities said contained a "large amount of steroids." The 295-pound former college wrestling champion had been in Kentucky training at a WWE facility at the time. Charges were dismissed when tests determined that the seized pills were not steroids. Lesnar's attorney asserted the pills were a type of vitamin. The attorney clarified that authorities were apologetic for the mix-up. Investigators did not clarify how they determined the parcel potentially contained illicit substances.
