Former NFL Player Arrested On Drug Charges

In connection with the execution of a search-and-seizure warrant at his 10 White Oak Farm Road home on the morning of Friday, May 30, federal drug agents charged former National Football League player Gennaro Label DiNapoli, 39, with two counts of illegal sale of narcotics.

US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents made the arrest with the assistance of Newtown police.

After the two charges were processed at the town police station, DiNapoli was released on $150,000 bail for a June 17 arraignment in Danbury Superior Court, according to court records.

On May 30, DiNapoli was arrested on a court warrant which alleges that he sold a total of 330 pills of oxycodone to DEA undercover agents at his home in April and in May for a total of $6,200. Oxycodone is a powerful painkiller.

Court papers listing the items which the DEA agents seized at DiNapoli’s home on May 30 were not immediately available for review.

DiNapoli played as a lineman for the Oakland Raiders, Tennessee Titans, and Dallas Cowboys. He played in the NFL from 1998 to 2004. He played college football for Virginia Tech.
