Known well by many Philadelphia natives for winning the Wing Bowl most recently in 2005 when he took apart 162 chicken wings. He's a five-time champion of the contest and a local legend in the event.

Now, Simmons has bigger problems than overeating and indigestion.

Police arrested the 50-year-old Simmons after finding $8,000 worth of cocaine and another $4,000 in cash upon stopping him in Southern New Jersey.

He was driving in his Kia Soul. The car was decorated with the name of "El Wingador". Hey, at least he kept a low profile right?
