Coppage bound over for trial on drug charges
ELKHORN Former UW-Whitewater football star running back Levell Coppage, 213 N. Fraternity Lane, No. 206, Whitewater, has been bound over for trial on felony drug charges.
Coppage, 22, appeared in court Tuesday and waived a preliminary hearing. He requested, and was granted, a substitution of judge. Walworth County Judge John Race will now hear the case.
He is charged with four felony counts of manufacturing/delivery of marijuana, one count of possession of marijuana and one count of possession of drug paraphernalia.
The criminal complaint filed against Coppage accuses him of dealing marijuana from a parking lot on Fraternity Lane near his residence and from a residence on East Main Street in Whitewater. He is accused of selling marijuana to the same confidential informant on four separate occasions in September.
A vehicle operated by Coppage was stopped Sept. 25, a day after the fourth controlled buy of drugs listed in the complaint. Coppage's backpack was searched and officers reported they found marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Coppage is free on a $2,500 signature bond. No date has been set for his next court appearance.
