The 81-year-old was the ring leader of a group that resold pills provided by co-conspirators who were prescribed the drugs, according to police. They allege that Cox sold $1000 worth of Dilaudid during a six-month investigation that included undercover cops.

His 26-year-old grandson, Erick Blakey, was also arrested in the sting.

“Listen, son, all this is a big bunch of crap,” Cox said in a TSG interview. He acknowledged having obtained Dilaudid for his grandson, but does not recall reselling the painkiller to anyone else.

“I’m 81-years-old. I’ve never been in trouble before in my life.”

That’s not true. He was arrested in 1983 in Orlando for lewd and lascivious behavior.

When The Smoking Gun asked Cox about the arrest, he said an undercover officer accused him of “shaking my d*ck at him.” He copped to a lesser offense and ended up serving six months probation.

Cox was released after his daughter posted $5,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear at Circuit Court for arraignment on June 11.

“I’m very sorry for whatever I’ve done,” he said of his drug arrest.
