In 2012, the Association of Surfing Professionals would be rolling out a policy to screen competitors and officials for performance-enhancing and recreational drugs. This would mean the international governing body of surfing for the first time has prepared to introduce comprehensive drug testing for professionals.

This move came after the death of Andy Irons, triple world champion, in November 2010. The postmortem revealed that he died from a heart attack and “acute mixed drug ingestion” and traces of methadone, methamphetamine, also known as crystal meth, and a metabolite of cocaine were found in his bloodstream.

Anthony Ruffo, a 47-year-old pioneer of the Santa Cruz scene in the 1980s and another surfer, is facing a possible jail sentence after he was found selling methamphetamine and caught with an ounce of the drug.

“I have seen guys who are stoners and they drop off the scene because it is not sustainable,” he said. “Athletes are training hard. The way the contests are now, it will catch up with you,” Gerry Fitzgerald, a professional in Ireland, said.

Phony repairman stole drugs from pharmacyJoshua Paul Fleetwood, 25, was arrested by authorities last Friday for accusations of attempted burglary, and drug possession.

According to police reports, the burglaries occurred in August with two incidents happening in Metairie and one in Kenner.

A man reportedly claiming as a repairman sent by the pharmacy’s head office entered the stores and requested access to safes.

As per state law, safes are used to store prescription drugs classified as controlled dangerous substances.

He then told pharmacy staff that he was there to conduct repairs or replace batteries in the safe doors.

Pharmacists would often notice missing drugs only after the repairman has left.

The latest burglary happened in a CVS at West Esplanade Ave in Metairie. Inventory count revealed missing bottles of oxycodone, Adderall and methadone. It is not known, however, if Fleetwood is involved in this case.

A search of Fleetwood’s residence revealed bottles of anabolic steroids possibly taken from the burglaries. Two counts of drug possession charges were added according to arrest reports.

He was temporarily released from the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center due to overcrowding. His bail was set at $260,000.

Fleetwood has previous criminal records at Jefferson Parish for possessions of heroin and hydrocodone.

  MMA’s James Irvin tested positive – no, not for steroids – but for opioid analgesics

james-irvin-steroidsMixed martial arts is a kind of sport that requires a high tolerance for pain and maybe James Irvin has a relatively lowered pain threshold than most MMA fighters. So, he opted to use painkillers. Bad, bad idea. Methadone and oxymorphone are scheduled, dude!

And the fact that the Nevada State Athletic Commission conducts post-fight doping screening of athletes under its jurisdiction, Irvin’s intake of these banned compounds screams for the question: What were you thinking, dude?!

Irvin apparently threw caution to the wind when he grabbed the opportunity to fight Anderson Silva on UFC Fight Night on July 19. This despite a recent injury he sustained while he was training for his bout against Rashad Evans on UFC 85: Bedlam. The match-up with Evans did not push through and Irvin lost to Silva. So, all those painkillers he took to speed up recovery of his injury were all for nothing.

Now, Irvin is under temporary suspension pending a disciplinary hearing with the NSAC. His hearing with the NSAC could result to cancellation of his license and/or pecuniary fine for his alleged violations. Bad, bad news for Irvin.

Sherdog.com has the details:

Getting the opportunity to face the world’s top pound-for-pound fighter might not have been worth it to James Irvin in the end.

After getting squashed by Anderson Silva in a minute and one second during their July 19 UFC light heavyweight tilt on Spike TV, the Sacramento native has allegedly tested positive for the non-approved analgesic painkillers Methadone and Oxymorphone according to a post-fight urinalysis conducted by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

Irvin’s manager, Mike Roberts, told Sherdog.com Tuesday afternoon that he had not been aware of the allegations and had not been in contact with his client about them yet. Irvin could not be immediately reached for comment.

Irvin, 29, took the Silva bout on the heels of recovery from a broken foot, after the UFC had swiftly organized the July 19 event to counter-program a pay-per-view hosted by the rival Affliction promotion on the same night.

A former star on the central California’s WEC circuit prior to the promotion’s purchase by Zuffa LLC. in 2006, the heavy-handed Irvin had posted back-to-back wins over Luis Arthur Cane and Houston Alexander before his one-sided loss to UFC middleweight champion Silva.

Methadone is a synthetic opioid used as analgesic to treat chronic and severe pain. It is also used to abate withdrawal symptoms of former drug dependents. Oxymorphone is also classified as a narcotic pain reliever.
