Adel - A month-long investigation in Adel ends with a former NFL star behind bars.
41-year-old Kenny Tippins was arrested Sunday afternoon, charged with possession of cocaine with the intent to distribute.
Police in Adel say they watched the former linebacker's home for about a month before getting enough evidence to search his house.
They found cocaine and marijuana inside.
Tippins played with the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 and the Atlanta Falcons from 1990 to 1995.
