Ex-Cowboy Greg Hardy indicted on felony count of cocaine possession
The former Cowboys defensive end could be looking at jail time in Texas
The 2013 Pro Bowler was arrested Sept. 26 after he was pulled over by police in the Dallas suburb of Richardson. During the traffic stop, officers searched Hardy's car and found a bag of suspected cocaine. At the time, Hardy said he didn't know how the cocaine ended up in his car.
According to court records from the indictment, Hardy's baggie contained 0.7 grams of the drug. That amount of cocaine means Hardy faces up to two years in prison and a $10,ooo fine for the felony drug charge.
When police searched Hardy, they noted that they also found a TopGolf membership card that listed his name as "Overlord Hardy Jr."
The 28-year-old hasn't played in the NFL since the Cowboys' regular season finale in 2015. After that, Dallas decided to let him walk in free agency.
The former Cowboys and Panthers defensive end was suspended for four games in 2015 stemming from a domestic violence incident in May 2014 where he was accused of throwing his ex-girlfriend into a bathtub and dragging her by her hair from room to room.
Hardy was convicted in a bench trial; however, Hardy appealed the conviction, and the charges were later dropped in February 2015. The case was dismissed after Hardy's ex-girlfriend refused to cooperate with the district attorney.
Before signing with Dallas in 2015, Hardy spent five seasons with the Panthers (2010-14).
