An alleged drug dealer(with an awesome name BTW) has named ex Eagle Correll Buckhalter as one of his clients.

A Delaware County prosecutor this morning named former Eagles running back Correll Buckhalter among the reported clients of an alleged drug dealer during opening arguments of a trial.

Deputy District Attorney Katayoun M. Copeland, addressing the jury, said that Styles N. Beckles, 36, of Clifton Heights, had told police that he sold drugs to pro athletes, including Buckhalter and Keita Crespina, a former Temple University football player.

Given Buck's history with the weed, it's not a stretch to believe Mr. Beckles here. Buckhalter was suspended in 2001 after being arrested on South Street for possession of marijuana.
