Pats' Chung faces cocaine possession charge

Patrick Chung

New England Patriots' safety Patrick Chung has been indicted for a felony cocaine possession, according to multiple reports Thursday morning.

The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots are set to kick off their season on September 8 when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers, but Patrick Chung might not be available.

The Meredith Police Department, which handled the incident, would not provide comment or additional information to Patriots Wire, citing an active investigation. The Laconia Sun listed 32-year-old Patrick C. Chung of Meredith, N.H.as being cited on the charge, and the paper later confirmed that indeed is the Patriots safety.

A "highly placed law enforcement source" confirmed to the Laconia Sun's Michael Mortensen that the man indicted is the same Patrick Chung who has played in the National Football League for 10 seasons, nine for the Patriots.


Cocaine possession is considered a Class B felony, which can carry a potential prison term of 3.5 to seven years. He also did not play in the team's first two preseason games.

The Patriots selected Chung in the second round, No. 34 overall, in the 2009 NFL Draft.

The veteran defensive back signed a one-year contract extension in April, keeping him with the club through 2021.
