Patrick Chung indicted on cocaine possession charge
New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung was indicted on a cocaine possession charge this week.
Chung was indicted by a grand jury on Aug. 8 and is scheduled to appear in a New Hampshire court next Wednesday to be arraigned, as first reported by Michael Mortensen of The Laconia Daily Sun. The 32-year-old was not arrested, but the indictment states that he “did possess or have under his control a quantity of the controlled substance cocaine.”
Chung owns a home in Meredith, NH, on Lake Winnipesaukee, which is a popular destination for vacationers in the northeast. Many athletes, celebrities, and wealthy people own homes on the massive lake.
Chung is an important part of the Patriots’ defense. The three-time Super Bowl champion is in his second stint with the team and has played with New England for nine seasons. He also found himself in legal trouble earlier this year when he was sued by a Los Angeles Rams employee who said he lost his job over some trash talk.
