Cops raid Ravens rookie Reed's home as part of narcotics probe

A police spokesman said Friday that authorities raided the home of Baltimore Ravens rookie kick returner David Reed earlier this week to investigate potential drug activity.

Lt. Robert McCullough of the Baltimore County police said no charges have been filed in the case, but police did take evidence from Reed's residence.

McCullough said police entered Reed's home around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday to "investigate potential narcotics activities." McCullough said the evidence that was confiscated is being analyzed and Reed "currently is not being charged with anything."

Reed hasn't been disciplined by the Ravens and is expected to travel with the team when they head to Houston for Monday night's game against the Texans.

"We're aware of the situation, and we have talked about it with David," said Kevin Byrne, the Ravens' senior vice president of public and community relations. "He'll have his due process and his opportunity to talk about the circumstances."

Should Reed be charged and convicted, he would be subject to the NFL's personal-conduct policy.

Reed, a fifth-round draft pick out of Utah, has made an impact on the Ravens as a kickoff returner. Reed has returned 14 kicks for a 26.1-yard average, including an 84-yarder in a Nov. 21 game against the Carolina Panthers.
