Patriots safety Patrick Chung has reached agreement with prosecutors to drop charges stemming from his 2019 arrest. The case will not go to trial, provided that Chung stays out of trouble over the next two years, participates in regular drug testing, and performs 40 hours of community service.
In June, New Hampshire cops were called to Chung’s home in late June on “on a call for service.” While at his residence, police obtained evidence leading to a felony drug charge for cocaine possession. Chung submitted a plea of not guilty and, months later, appears set to put the incident behind him.
The Belknap County Attorney’s office cited Chung’s cooperation and lack of a prior record for their decision to settle. They also noted that police only found a small amount of cocaine at his house. Of course, Chung could still face league discipline in the form of a fine and/or suspension.
Last year, Chung appeared in 13 games and recorded 51 tackles, three passes defended, and one tackle for loss. In the Patriots’ Wild Card game against the Titans, Chung injured his ankle in the first quarter and was unable to return. The Pats went on to lose 20-13, eliminating them from the playoffs.

“The case will not go to trial, provided that Chung stays out of trouble over the next two years” What a joke
That’s still a heavier punishment than California would give lol
California is all about huge deficits, so they would pay Chung to stay out of trouble for the next three months.
Not so wise. California is in surplus. Better stick to sports
California is about deficits? lmao quite the opposite. They will have a surplus of several BILLION dollars this year. But don’t let the truth get in the way of your politics.

Nice to be rich!
Call for service? I thought no one was home?
“Call for service” is a euphemism for “We were hanging out at the local donut shop when someone reported suspicious activity in the neighborhood”.
Good to be a wealthy, pro athlete.
Goodell doesn’t have a program for guys that are too dysfunctional to get themselves arrested and charged? This is unacceptable.
