Somehow, I think we all knew this wouldn’t end well.
Green Bay Packers defensive end [intlink id=”205″ type=”category”]Johnny Jolly[/intlink], who’s currently serving an indefinite suspension from the NFL and awaiting trial for felony possession of codeine, was arrested early this morning. He was caught with 600 grams of codeine in his vehicle.
Houston police stopped Jolly’s Cadillac Escalade for a traffic violation at 12:45 a.m. on the 9900 block of Westpark. Jolly presented a state identification card rather than a driver’s license, and police learned that his license is suspended and is not eligible for renewal.
While searching the vehicle, police discovered that Jolly was in possession of 600 grams of Codeine, which is a felony charge. Police also discovered another unidentified substance, which has been sent in for testing.
All I can do is shake my head. Jolly is obviously more into the codeine business than he is into playing in the NFL.
Codeine, in case you were unaware, is used in a concoction known as purple drank or sizzurp, among other things, and is mixed with Mountain Dew or Sprite and Jolly Ranchers. The drink was invented and popularized in Jolly’s native Houston.
Jolly has never been the sharpest knife in the drawer and when he began working out with former [intlink id=”29″ type=”category”]Oakland Raiders[/intlink] quarterback JaMarcus Russell, who was arrested for codeine possession in a separate incident, you almost knew something bad was about to happen.
We can now officially give up hope Jolly will ever play for the Green Bay Packers again.
Frankly, someone this stupid deserves to do time. Maybe the fact his actions have consequences will finally register in his big, stupid head.
