Johnny Jolly denied bail, will remain in jail

J. Jolly
Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who is almost certainly soon to become “former Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly” will be spending the next three weeks locked up. Jolly, as you know, was arrested on possession of a controlled substance in Houston last week.

Jolly appeared in court Wednesday and was denied bail. Thus, he’ll remain in custody until his next court date, April 20 (ironic date for a drug-related case).

Police officers last week arrested Jolly after finding a bottle containing 600 grams of codeine (aka Purple Drank) and another containing an unidentified substance under the seats of his car.

Jolly was suspended by Roger Goodell for all of the 2010 season for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Last August, Jolly settled drug charges for a separate incident in 2008 in which he was arrested for having 200 grams of codeine. Jolly made a deal with prosecutors that allowed him to avoid felony trial as long as he stayed out of trouble for the next year. Oops.

To add to the previous comment i made, I do hope he gets help and returns to the NFL sometime/where, but I don't have much sympathy for him. He made the choice to do the drugs and chose to use his money on things that were bad for him instead of getting help. Getting addicted is a terrible terrible thing, but it doesn't take you off the hook. You still are responsible for yourself. Best wishes, but he needs to accept the penalty as he had an option, and chose the wrong path.

Best part about this is that GB proved they don't need players like him. They will get a hard working guy to take his place and EARN a spot on the roster. You'd think a guy with a guaranteed spot on the defending champs would work his butt off to get ready to play for them. Apparently not.
