Star-Tribune Reporting Aaron Boogaard May Have Destroyed Evidence

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has added a couple of details to the ongoing story of Aaron Boogaard and the charges he might face in connection with the drug overdose death of his brother, Derek Boogaard.

Formal charges were filed today by the Hennepin County authorities on Friday. The 24-year old Boogaard was charged with third-degree sale of a controlled substance, which is a felony, and interference with a death, which is a gross misdemeanor.

According to the complaint filed by Hennepin County:

Police were called (to)  the apartment, where Aaron Boogaard told officers that he had given Derek the powerful painkiller Oxycodone before the NHLer went out to nightclubs with friends the previous night. Aaron said his brother intended to go on a "binger" and celebrate one day after being released from a chemical-dependency treatment center.

Aaron Boogaard also told the officers that he had been holding for his brother the narcotics Oxycontin and Percocet, neither of which came from a doctor.

Again, we will continue to monitor this story as it develops.
