LACONIA, N.H. — Former Oregon Ducks safety Patrick Chung, who now plays for the NFL's New England Patriots, has been indicted in New Hampshire on a charge of cocaine possession, according to court paperwork released Thursday.

A Belknap County grand jury indicted Chung, 32, on Aug. 8. Chung knowingly possessed cocaine on June 25 while in Meredith, authorities said.

Chung's arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.

Town records show that Chung owns a lakeside home in Meredith, the Laconia Sun reported.

It is not clear whether Chung has an attorney who can speak for him. The court file doesn't list one.

Chung has been an integral part of the Patriots defense during his two stints with the team. New England drafted him in the second round in 2009. He left in free agency in 2012 and signed with the Eagles.

He spent one year in Philadelphia and returned to New England in 2014. He won Super Bowl rings with the Patriots to conclude the 2014, 2016 and 2018 seasons.
