Packers' Johnny Jolly Arrested
HOUSTON (AP) -- Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly Jr. has been charged with felony drug possession.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound former Texas A&M Aggie faces a July 22 court date after his arrest last week.
Jolly was arrested Tuesday in Houston for allegedly possessing at least 200 grams of a controlled substance, which would be a second-degree felony. The 25-year-old player is free on $10,000 bond, court officials said.
Jolly played in 10 games last season for the Packers, recording 21 tackles. He injured his shoulder against Carolina on Nov. 18 and didn't play the rest of the season.
Packers spokesman Jeff Blumb said the team is aware of the matter and declined to comment on it.
Jolly played in 47 games and started 35 for Texas A&M from 2002-05. He finished his college career with 230 tackles, 6 1/2 sacks, 28 tackles for loss and 16 pass deflections. He was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2006 NFL draft.
Jolly attended high school in Houston.
