Green Bay Packers defensive end Johnny Jolly, who is still awaiting trial on felony drug possession charges, was given much tighter bond restrictions by a Texas judge Friday.
Greg A. Bedard of the Journal Sentinel reports that Judge Mike Anderson ordered Jolly to submit a hair follicle to be tested for drugs and alcohol, barred Jolly from attending any place that has drugs or alcohol, mandated that Jolly undergo an evaluation to determine whether he has a problem with drugs or alcohol, and informed Jolly that he now must abide by a 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew.
The judge was apparently unhappy because pictures have surfaced showing Jolly holding alcoholic drinks, and because Jolly’s lawyer got a May 5 hearing postponed because Jolly was hospitalized with appendicitis — and yet Jolly was pictured on a flyer advertising a May 7 party at a Houston club.
“I don’t want to see another flyer like this,” Anderson told Jolly.
Jolly was arrested in Houston on July 8, 2008, for possession of at least 200 grams of codeine, a second-degree felony that carries a sentence of two to 20 years. Jolly’s jury trial has not yet been scheduled.
Jolly is a restricted free agent who has not signed his tender with the Packers.
