Patriots apologetic back Patrick Chung during a game counter to the Tennessee Titans.
Felony charge of cocaine possession on New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung has been accused in New Hampshire, court documents indicted.
According to a court filing by the Belknap County Attorney’s office, Chung, 32, a veteran of 10 NFL seasons who won three Super Bowls with the Patriots, was charged on August 8 for possession of a controlled drug.
The charge stems from a June 25 incident in Meredith, New Hampshire, when “Chung did possess or have under his control a quantity of the controlled drug cocaine,” according to court documents.
County Attorney Andrew Livernois said in a statement on Thursday, Meredith officers who were called to Chung’s residence that day “obtained the evidence which has led to the current charges being filed”.
Livernois added, Chung was not arrested at the time but prosecutors sought an indictment following the police investigation.
Chung is to be accused Wednesday in Belknap County Superior Court in Laconia.
The Patriots, in a statement, said the team “will not be commenting while his judicial proceedings take place.”
“We will monitor developments in the law enforcement matter.” NFL statement said.
There was no instant reply from Chung’s agent.
A second-round draft pick out of Oregon in 2009, Chung had 11 captures in the first 10 years of his career.
After the 2018 season he signed a contract extension through 2021.
