Patriots’ Patrick Chung facing felony cocaine possession charge in New Hampshire

New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung was indicted on August 8 for cocaine possession, according to multiple reports.

A source told Jim Murray of 98.5 The Sports Hub that a tripped burglar alarm at the New England Patriots safety's Meredith, N.H., house prompted police to visit the residence.

A Belknap Superior Court jury returned an indictment earlier this month charging the 32-year-old National Football League veteran with cocaine possession.

Following the news of Chung's indictment, the team did release a brief statement saying that they are aware of the reports, but will not comment at this time.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on the charge in Belknap County Superior Court next Wednesday.

Cocaine is a Class B felony in New Hampshire punishable by up to seven years in prison, though first offenders can end up with a fine and probation. New England hosts the Carolina Panthers in a preseason game tonight at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

A second-round draft pick by the Patriots in 2009, Chung has spent nine of his 10 National Football League seasons in New England, with his tenure broken by one season with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013.

Chung was originally drafted by the New England in the second round of the 2009 NFL Draft. The voicemail box for Chung's agent was full.
