The King

Scott King was a college football standout at Mars College in North Carolina. At 6’5 and 225 lbs of pure muscle, he was a superstar on the gridiron. College attendance tripled when he played.
King was also the BMOC (Big Man On Campus) who dated the prettiest girls and rolled in the most expensive cars. King never went anywhere without a large bankroll and he was the life of the party.
Classmates and college boosters assumed that King would enter the NFL and put Mars College on the map. Depending on who you talk to, King didn’t enter the draft or was overlooked because he played for a small college. Everyone was disappointed, except King.
With his connections, King was able to gain employment with high-end dealerships in the area. He learned the ends and outs of the luxury car business.
He received financing and opened up a dealership, he was also affiliated with a dealership in Atlanta called, “404 Motor Sports.”
King featured Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Rovers, Rolls Royce’s, Mercedes Benz’s, Navigators, Escalades and BMW’s on his lot.
He was often spotted around down rolling in a different car each day of the week, adorned in $5,000 tailored Italian suits, gators, and an assortment of bling.
King lived lavishly in an extravagant mansion. When he wasn’t vacationing in exotic locales on private yachts, he was hosting $1 million dollar parties in his mansion, populated by the elite.’
He associated with professional athletes and celebrities on a regular basis and his clientele included some of the biggest names in hip-hop.
King came to the attention of police because he was affiliated with a sophisticated drug ring run by a low-level drug dealer in Greenville, S.C. who was arrested by the DEA in 2004.
Later, Investigators would uncover a drug ring, masterminded by Scott King. The ring moved significant amounts of crack and powdered cocaine through the southeast.
Investigators were able to track the operation all the way to a Atlanta dealership, “404 Motor Sports.”
Ten people were charged in connection with the case, including Scott King, the ringleader.
All of the key players turned themselves in except King, who drove off in a white 500 series Mercedes Benz.
A King accomplice was recently picked up in California. Cops think King may be there too.
King is charged with cocaine distribution and money laundering.
King was captured in 2006.
