Diego Osorio arrested again

Former Colombian international Diego Osorio was yesterday caught trying to smuggle 1.145kg of cocaine from Colombia to Spain.

The 46-year-old retired defender was arrested for cocaine possession and trafficking in Miami in August 2002 and didn’t appear to learn his lesson.

“I am paying off a debt” is what Diego Osorio told the agents who caught him in the Jose Maria Cordova airport in Rionegro yesterday.

Cocaine strapped to his junk

With 17 international caps for Colombia to his name, the cocaine was reportedly found strapped to his body inside his underwear.

Trying to catch a flight to Madrid, the street value of the 1.145kg of cocaine is supposedly around €45,000.

A video of Diego Osorio being read his rights by an agent at the airport (in Spanish) can be watched below.
