Ohio authorities raided a home owned by Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, arresting a man living there on marijuana trafficking charges.

Police in West Chester located just outside Cincinnati executed search warrants of the home on April 10th, just two weeks after Butler County records show Dre Kirkpatrick purchased the house.

Officials said 36-year-old Jarrod Blair was arrested during the bust.

Kirkpatrick’s agent confirmed Blair was a tenant at one of the rental properties Kirkpatrick owns.

The agent added that Kirkpatrick, the Bengals’ 2012 first round draft pick isn’t a target of the investigation and is cooperating with police, The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Authorities charged Blair with drug trafficking and drug possession.

Court records haven’t indicated whether Blair has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
