A retired New England Patriot player has been arrested and charged with assault. Patrick Chung, a former Patriot safety was arrested yesterday in Milton, Massachusetts. He was charged with assault and battery, as well as vandalization. He played 11 seasons in the NFL, 9 of which were with the New England Patriots.
This is not the only time he has had issues with legal issues. Back in 2019, he was charged with possession of cocaine but the charge was ultimately dropped.
Hopefully, we hear more in the coming days on what happened and he can get the help that he needs. We will have to see about jail time, which seems probable in a case like this.
Report: Retired Patriot Arrested, Charged With Assault
The Patriots are coming off a big win against the New York Jets in which they won in a big way. Bill Belichick talked about the win in his post game presser.
“Proud of the way the team’s bounced back here and hopefully we can string another good set of days together and head out to [Los Angeles],” Belichick said about their next game.
“It was just kind of the right situation,” said Belichick. “Josh does a great job of mixing plays in to take advantage of the defense’s over-aggressiveness.
“It was great call by Josh and obviously very well executed by everybody,” Belichick added. “You know, [Agholor], just kind of the right timing of getting the defender to come up and then get behind him. And obviously [Bourne] made a great throw.”
“I thought our guys did a real good job today, players were ready to go,” Belichick noted. “We had a good week and came out, got off to a good start, and played from ahead.”
“It is if it hasn’t gone well in practice,” the Patriots’ coach explained. “But usually when it goes well in practice, you gain confidence in it, they gain confidence in it, and you call it. When you don’t do it well in practice, then honestly it usually doesn’t get called.
“Sometimes it’s a little different in the game because the aggressiveness of the defense might be different than what the aggressiveness is of the scout team,” Belichick continued. “So sometimes some of those plays are really designed to get everybody up and then get behind them. You don’t always get that reaction in practice but again, generally speaking some of our one-time plays, misdirection or double-passes, things like that, those guys have executed them pretty well in practice. So I have confidence in them.”
