HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Former Texas A&M and current Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly Jr. faces a July 22 court date after he was arrested last week and charged with felony drug possession.
Jolly, 25, was arrested last Tuesday in Houston for possession of at least 200 grams of a controlled substance, a second-degree felony, said John Meltzer, clerk for the 262nd District Court. He posted $10,000 bond and was released Wednesday.
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound 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 played in 10 games last season, recording 21 tackles. He injured his shoulder against Carolina on Nov. 18 and did not play the rest of the season.
Packers spokesman Jeff Blumb said the team was "aware of the report involving Johnny Jolly. This is a legal matter, and we still are in the process of gathering information," he said. "We have no further comment at this time."
Now the Packers DT position looks even weaker...
