Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly was placed on much tighter bond restrictions this morning in a Harris County (Texas) courtroom because of some questionable behavior as he still awaits trial on felony drug possession charges.
Jolly’s jury trial, which was scheduled to start today, has been reset. The new date is not yet known.
Prosecutors today presented judge Mike Anderson with a flyer that said Jolly would be hosting a party at a Houston club, The Blue Door, on May 7th.
The prosecutor also presented recent photos from a website that showed Jolly at various parties with alcoholic drinks in his hand.
Under the terms of his bond, Jolly is to abstain from drugs and alcohol.
The prosecutor wanted Jolly's bond raised, but Anderson decided to keep the bond at $10,000.
However, Anderson placed more restrictions on Jolly after pointing to the flyer and telling Jolly, “I don’t want to see another flyer like this.”
Under the new terms:
- Jolly must submit a hair follicle to be tested for drugs by a lab within the next seven days.
- He is now subject to a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew;
- Jolly was ordered not to attend any place that has drugs or alcohol;
- He must go to an evaluation center to determine whether he has issues with drugs for alcohol, and then abide by any recommendations for treatment.
Beck asked the judge if Jolly could still travel with the Packers.
Anderson said that will be handled as it comes it, but they’ll use common sense
Hey! You're awaiting trial on felony drug possession charges! You're a professional athlete looking to earn a new contract! I've got a GREAT idea. Do something that could possibly jeopardize your ability to travel with the team you play for!
What a turd.
