LACONIA, N.H. — New England Patriots security Patrick Chung has been indicted in New Hampshire on a cost of cocaine possession, in response to court docket paperwork launched Thursday.
A Belknap County grand jury indicted Chung, 32, on Aug. eight.
Members of the Meredith, N.H., police division had been referred to as to Chung’s residence June 25 “on a call for service” and obtained proof resulting in the felony drug cost, Andrew Livernois, the Belknap County Attorney, mentioned in an announcement.
Livernois declined to offer further particulars on the case.
Chung’s arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.
It is just not clear whether or not Chung has an lawyer who can communicate for him. The court docket file doesn’t listing one.
“We are aware of the reports regarding Patrick Chung,” the Patriots tweeted. “We will not be commenting while his judicial proceedings take place.”
The team also didn’t say whether Chung would play Thursday night at a preseason home game against the Carolina Panthers.
Chung has been an integral part of the Patriots defense during his two stints with the team. New England drafted him in the second round in 2009. He left in free agency in 2012 and signed with the Eagles.
He spent one year in Philadelphia and returned to New England in 2014. He won Super Bowl rings with the Patriots to conclude the 2014, 2016 and 2018 seasons.
