Patriots' Patrick Chung indicted on cocaine possession charge

Patriots

Patrick Chung has landed in legal trouble of the New England Patriots' third preseason game.

A Belknap (N.H.) County grand jury indicted the Patriots safety one a cocaine possession charge earlier this month, according to assistant attorney Keith Cormier.

Chung knowingly possessed cocaine on June 25 in Meredith, N.H., where he owns a home. He was indicted on Aug. 8.

The Laconia Sun listed 32-year-old Patrick C. Chung of Meredith, N.H. as one of several people cited in a recent grand jury session, and the paper confirmed that indeed is the Patriots safety. (Chung's middle name is Christopher.)

Chung is scheduled to appear in Belknap Superior Court for his arraignment next Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. ET.

As the Sun notes, cocaine possession in New Hampshire is a Class B felony that carries a potential prison term of 3 1/2 to seven years.
