After the hearing, Radel rushed out of the courtroom without saying a word to a horde of assembled reporters. He got into a minivan waiting outside the courthouse, and it drove away.

Radel reportedly was caught buying the cocaine on Oct. 29, in an undercover sting operation set up by the Drug Enforcement Administration and FBI.
