Judge places more restrictions on Johnny Jolly

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.

    And rightly so! With all these drug charges and bullet holes on the side of Lambeau Field it should come to no surprise to anyone who thugged out the Green Bay Packer organization is. Its only a matter of time before Cushing’s buddy Clay Matthews is caught for steroids as well. Stay classy Green Bay…staaaaaay classy.

  2. LOL
    What a moron!!!
    Yep the Packers have nothing but fine upstanding citizens on their team.
    What a POS this guy is.
    Cannot wait to see Bobby boy’s ignorant spin on this one.

  3. This has been going on since before the Williamson’s hearing and Jolly’s situation involves a felony. Nice that the judge finally did something but let’s get real, it’s time to deal with this idiot. “I don’t want to see another flyer like this”….ohhhh such tough talk, LMAO

  4. Well if I was going away for 2-20 years, I’d probably be making the most of my free time, too.

  5. Ted Thompsons pick of mike Neal in the second round is finally making more sense. Jolly would be wise to sign his tender.

  6. What an idiot. I’m glad the Pack drafted 2 D-lineman since this moron is seemingly trying to go to jail.

  7. This guys got about a 70 IQ, a little higher than Jimmy Smith and Bob Nelson.

  8. Wait, he hasn’t been found guilty of anything yet. How can the judge enforce any of that?

  9. Too bad the Packers can’t find a Wisconsin judge that will grant Jolly permission break whatever law he wants. Apparently that works in Minnesota.

  10. almost two years and he hasn’t come to trial yet? What’s up with that? Sounds like preferential treatment to me.

  11. What an idiot…. No wonder Teddy picked up Mike Neal…… It is all coming full circle now…..
    In Ted we trust.

  12. Social media and cell phone cameras are going to be the bane of many athletes’ lives from here on out.

  13. Maybe there’s a reason TT drafted a couple of DL during the recent draft. It also gives some insight into the decision to move Raji to the starter at nose and move Pickett to DE in place of Jolly. Looks like we might need Justin Harrell to be healthy this year.

  14. That’s a lot of restrictions for a guy who hasn’t been convicted of anything. Even though it is in his best interests to stay away from “party” environments and keep a low profile, he should be doing it because of his lawyer’s advice or his own common sense, not because of a court order.

  15. Jimmy Smith is OK with this because Jolly is not a Viking. Bob Nelson is studying his “morals” handbook to see if he can find an excuse for Jolly.

  16. Congratulations John “Fat Ass” Jolly! On a team of rejects,losers and douchebags, you take the grand prize purple jizz slurper. No wonder the Vikings are the lone class act of the NFC North.

  17. John Jolly and Clay Matthews were picked up by the cops for selling drugs and appeared in court before the judge. The judge said:
    You seem like nice young men, and I’d like to give you a second chance rather than jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to show others the evils of drug use and persuade them to give up drugs forever. I’ll see you back in court Monday.”
    Monday, they were in court, and the judge said to Jolly:
    “How did you do over the weekend?”
    “Well, your honour, I persuaded 10 people to give up drugs forever.”
    “10 people? That’s wonderful. What did you tell them?”
    “I used a diagram, your honour. I drew two circles like this: O o and told them this (the big circle) is your brain before drugs and this (small circle) is your brain after drugs.”
    “That’s admirable,” said the judge. “And you, how did you do?” (to Matthews)
    “Well, your honour, I persuaded 50 people to give up drugs forever.”
    “50 people! That’s amazing! How did you manage to do that!”
    “Well, I used the same two circles. I pointed to the small circle and told them, ‘This is your asshole before prison….”

    Actually, the only people who broke the law in Minnesota were the league officials with their testing policy…

    ==================================
    WHere to begin with this imbecile.
    The law is actually there to PROTECT them.
    You know, it actually help to know the story before you shoot off your idiotic mouth.
    You look like an idiot, but, I’m sure you are quite used to that.

    Hmmmmm. . .don’t they sell alcohol at pretty much every NFL stadium? And Jolly can’t go anywhere that drugs or alcohol are sold?
    Nicely done, stupid drug mule!

  22. Just another casualty of being signed to the Packers. Im sure he was a nice, decent, law abiding citizen until he was signed over to the Packers. Its a shame how much a persons life turns for the worst when they start associating with members of that organization.

  23. Am I the only one who finds the most amazing nugget in this post the fact that JJ hasn’t signed his tender yet? Is he really holding out for a better deal from another team? He realizes that felony charges make you LESS desirable, right???

    Now that’s just silly. Everyone knows Ted takes pride in not drafting for need. Best player available, remember? You can never have too many good FBs, DEs or WRs, no matter how terrible your O-line is.
    Also, who puts “healthy” and “Justin Harrell” in the same sentence? Have you followed the Packers lately at all?

  25. If a Smart-On-The-Field player shows himself to be an Off-the-Field Idiot, why can’t or doesn’t the team itself start taking measures to ensure things won’t get worse than they need to be, during the period before the justice system makes its final decisions, when there are words like charges,hearings, trial date, witnesses, evidence, depositions, conviction – floating around? Can’t the player’s team do anything at all to keep things under control?
