Hennepin County prosecutors have declined charges at this time against members of the University of Minnesota wrestling team accused using and selling the prescription drug Xanax. Following the decision, the University of Minnesota Police Department publicly released its report on this investigation.
A Fox 9 investigation last month revealed allegations of four wrestlers dealing the prescription drug Xanax; with ten other athletes using the anti-anxiety drug. The wrestlers were allegedly selling Xanax, which they called "Zanny," for $5 to other wrestlers and $8 to other students. WATCH REPORT - 4 Gophers wrestlers under investigation for selling Xanax
One June 24, Fox 9 reported that charges were declined against one of four wrestlers accused of dealing Xanax, citing "insufficient evidence at this time."
Wrestling Coach J. Robinson was allegedly aware of the suspicions and asked members of the team to write personal essays admitting their guilt. When university police asked Robinson for the names of the suspected players and their essays, Robinson allegedly refused to provide the information unless his players were granted immunity. Robinson also requested drug testing of the players. It is not clear if any tests were conducted because Xanax is not a prohibited, performance enhancing drug under NCAA rules.
On June 1, new Gophers athletics director placed Robinson on administrative leave. In placing Robinson on leave, Coyle told the coach "you are not to be on campus." On June 17, J Robinson Intensive Camps announced the wrestling camps scheduled to held on the University of Minnesota campus would be moved to the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
The University of Minnesota Police investigation remains open and the University of Minnesota's internal investigation remains active.
