Johnny Jolly arrested again on drug possession

J. Jolly was arrested again on drug charges. Posted by Josh Katzowitz

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.

Johnny Jolly arrested again on drug possession

Hmmmmmm! Where have I heard this story before?  And this folks is why it is better to have half a brain than no brain at all!  Mr. Jolly, you like so many before you had the palm of the world in your hand, all you had to do was you use a smidgeon, A SMIDGEON of COMMON SENSE!  For some unknown or unGodly reason you could not do that, and now in all likelihood you have thrown your career down the drain.  I know, i know it's someone else's fault, the STUFF was left by a really good buddy, your mommy made you eat all your vegetables when you were young, or you were possessed by the devil.  This is just such a shame that you not only don't care about yourself, but you didn't give a rats ass about your team and your teammates, dude I have seen chimps that learn faster than you.  Have fun in prison with your roommate Bubba.

Johnny Jolly arrested again on drug possession

Well if you ask me this possession charge if convicted should lead to a lifetime ban from the NFL as well as long term jail time. The question of if he was ever worthy of a starting position in the NFL is the funniest part of this quandry to me. This guy has played in just 48 games despite the fact that he entered the NFL in 2006 and had just 113 tackles, and 2 sacks at defensive tackle. He started just 39 games, and had just 1 strong season in 2009 right before he was suspended in July of 2010 for possession of 200 grams of codeine, applied for reinstatement, then got arrested again reportedly for 600 grams of codeine? The guy has collected no money from the NFL since 2009, and was caught twice with enough codeine to be charged with intent to distribute. I don't know about you but it sounds like this guy took up another career that could supply large amounts of money.

600 grams has to be enough to qualify for possession with intent, and he's already on probation. Oh, and there's another mystery substance in the car. If he doesn't go to prison, I'm moving to Texas immediately to become a drug dealer. As far as the Packers go, they don't need him. They won a Super Bowl without him because of their absurd depth. I can't see them putting up with Cokey McCodeine.

Zero tolerance state.
I'm not entirely sure, but my understanding of Texas law is that if you put 1 gram of codeine into 500 grams of liquid (alcohol, water, whatever), then the charge would be for 501 grams of a controlled substance. I'm not entirely sure about that, and I'm definitely not trying to make a stupid move on Jol;ly's part any less foolish, but the actual amount of codeine involved might be much less than 600 grams.

Either way, he's toast.

Pure and simple, this makes draft decisions a little easier. That is all.

Add two more people to the list of people that would hate irregardless if he was actually worth a second of thought. There's no doubt whatsoever that he (?) is a portly, lonely, acme-riddled, loudmouth blowhard that has been stuffed into one too many lockers in his lifetime. Further, he knows he'll get the absolute shit kicked out of his Dungeons and Dragons if he ever jawjacked in person like he does on the computer. So, we get to deal with him. If he was even remotely as smart as he thinks he is (and he's not), he would know that "irregardless" is a double negative. While it might be included in a dictionary (which I fully expect he spends time reading when Battle Star Gallactica isn't on), it was only added because stupid people kept using it as a real word. It's not. See, I'm smarter than him and that's why he looks up to me. My little, stupid virgin shadow.

This is another example why interest in the NFL is starting to subside and dwindle.

Um, is that why attendence is up and the ratings are the highest they have ever had? Did you think before you typed that?

You should check your screen name since Irregardless isn't even a correct word.  Although it can be used in place of regardless, and has been sort of thrown into the venacular, it is not grammatically correct.  Maybe you would be taken seriously if you actually had a screen name that made sense, you did a little research, and didn't write in bold all the time.

You should check the dictionary to increase your vocabulary.
You should also try to grasp the concept of message board point and counter point.
You would soon learn that the "bold" print is highlighted to give credit to the person that made that statement, and the following text is a reply. Especially on thread that are related to articles, this allows the reader to follow.

But given the fact you don't understand the word...word by your statement, I would imagine that level of understanding is a bit beyond your grasp.

Hims thought hims was smart.

Irregardless is stalking me, in case anyone wanted to know. I also assume he reads all my stuff (and he reads every last letter I drop) with his pants around his ankles and the door to his mom's basement locked. That's how it it when someone looks up to you. Price of fame, baby.

Yep, because that's we we are calling your claim to never, ever, ever follow football again because you didn't understand the current CBA issues...
And your need to voice some bizarre opinion.

Just calling your bluff honey bunches of goats.
