Judge denies bail for Packers’ Jolly
A judge has denied bond for troubled Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly after his latest arrest on a drug charge in Houston.
Jolly did not appear in court during a brief hearing on Wednesday. His next hearing is set for April 20.
Jolly was charged with possession of a controlled substance after being arrested early Friday morning.
Police say officers found a bottle containing 600 grams of codeine and another containing an unidentified substance under the front seats of Jolly’s car.
Carl Moore, Jolly’s attorney, says his client is innocent.
Jolly was suspended by the NFL without pay for all of last season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy related to a separate 2008 drug arrest in which officers said he also had codeine.
