Wing-eating champ El Wingador faces NJ prison term

WOODBURY, N.J. - July 29, 2013

Gloucester County prosecutors say William Simmons pleaded guilty Monday to possession with intent to distribute.

The 51-year-old Woodbury Heights resident faces a seven-year prison when he's sentenced in September.

Prosecutors say they won't object if he applies for an intensive supervision program that could shorten his sentence.

Several drug charges were filed against Simmons following a June 2012 traffic stop. Simmons admitted he was using "a little bit" of cocaine at the time.

El Wingador last won Philadelphia's Wing Bowl in 2005, when he gnawed through 162 chicken wings.

The Wing Bowl was started as a way for Philadelphia sports fans to blow off steam before the Super Bowl.
