Pete Rose Jr. Busted by D.E.A.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Pete Rose Jr., the son of the legendary baseball star, is facing drug trafficking charges, CNN has learned.

A federal law enforcement official said negotiations between Rose and the Drug Enforcement Administration led to Rose agreeing to turn himself in and plead guilty to charges in a federal indictment.

DEA officials said Rose could be sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison for his alleged role in a conspiracy to distribute gamma-butyrolactone (GBL) to minor league professional players.

The DEA says this arrest is part of a larger investigation into what it calls a major GBL trafficking organization.
