Star's Manager Busted

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina ) -- A federal judge has ordered the arrest of soccer star Diego Maradona's manager on charges of possessing drugs with intent to sell.


Federal Judge Hernan Bernasconi said he ordered the arrest Wednesday of Guillermo Coppola after police found half a kilogram of cocaine in a flower vase during a search of the manager's luxury apartment.


The amount of drugs found "exceed by far a quantity for personal use," Bernasconi said.


Earlier this week, Bernasconi ordered the arrest of Maradona's brother-in-law Gabriel Esposito and former soccer player Alberto Tarantini because of suspected contacts with an alleged drug ring.
