Patriots veteran safety Patrick Chung was indicted on a felony charge of cocaine possession on Aug. 8 in New Hampshire stemming from a July 25 incident, and is due to appear in Belknap Superior Court next Wednesday for arraignment.

"We are aware of the reports regarding Patrick Chung," the team said in a statement. "We will not be commenting while his judicial proceedings take place."

The league's statement: "We will monitor developments in the law enforcement matter."

Jim Murray 98.5 The Sports Hub tweeted that, according to a source, "Patrick Chung’s home in Meredith had an alarm tripped for a B&E. Police show up to check on the home, have probable cause to enter the home, and ultimately end up finding cocaine, leading to the investigation and indictment."

Now, onto what's really important here: What's the expected fallout between Chung, the Patriots and the league? You might be surprised.
