HOUSTON -- Former Texas A&M and current Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly Jr. is charged with felony drug
The 6-foot-3, 320-pound Aggie faces a July 22nd 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. Court officials say the 25-year-old player is
free on $10,000 bond.
Jolly played in 47 games and started 35 for Texas A&M from
2002-05. He finished his college career with 230 tackles, 6½ 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 November 18th and didn't
play the rest of the season.
Packers spokesman Jeff Blumb says the team's aware of the matter
and is declining to comment on it.
Jolly attended high school in Houston.
