Goingforburgundy Posted March 25, 2011 Share Posted March 25, 2011 Packers DT Johnny Jolly missed all of last year, because the NFL suspended him for the season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. More importantly, he didn’t have to face up to 20 years in prison on a drug possession charge because he pleaded guilty and entered a diversion program. Last month, Jolly filled out reinstatement paperwork with the league so he could attempt to resume his career, and it sounded like the Packers would welcome him back as long as he remained drug-free.Looks like he hit a roadbump this morning when, according to CBS Houston, he was arrested for drug possession again. According to the report, Houston police stopped his Cadillac Escalade for a traffic violation at 12:45 a.m. After he presented them with a state ID card instead of a driver’s license, officers learned his license had been suspended. Then, they searched his car and allegedly found 600 grams of Codeine and another unidentified substance. Possession of Codeine is a felony, and if police found enough drugs, he could be charged with intent to distribute. Forget his career, for a second. It sounds like Jolly could well be on his way to doing some real time in prison.
