Italian National Team Player Sami Panico arrested for Alleged Drug Trafficking

Italy prop Sami Panico has been arrested for alleged drug trafficking, according to Italian press reports.

The 25-year-old, who has played 10 Tests, had 1.5kg of marijuana and 330g of hashish seized from his home, news agency Ansa reported.

He was arrested on a drug-dealing charge and is now under house arrest while awaiting trial.

Italian newspaper La Gazzetta reported that Panico had 10,000 euros (£8,919) stashed in his garden.

Panico, who plays for Italian club Zebre, was dropped last year after breaking a team-mate’s jaw following an argument at the training ground.
