New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung has waived a court appearance in New Hampshire on a cocaine possession charge and a lawyer entered a not guilty plea on his behalf, according to Adam Schefter.
In late June, police were summoned to Chung’s home on a call for service. While police were at the residence, they found enough evidence to charge him with felony possession.
Chung, 32, a leader of the Patriots defense, is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 8, 2019. There will not be any punitive action from the NFL anytime soon, possibly not even at all. Pats head coach Bill Belichick has remained tight lipped about the situation.
Last season, Chung played in 15 games for the Patriots and started 14 of them. He posted one interception to go with 84 tackles.
