Report: Johnny Jolly passes drug test
This is unquestionably a good development for Johnny Jolly.
The defensive end passed his court-mandated drug test that came down when his bond restrictions were tightened last month and Harris County Judge Mike Anderson ordered a hair follicle test.
Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported that Jolly passed that test.
He didn’t pass all of his tests, though. Court documents made public, or we should say more public, by Bedard reveal that Jolly was deceptive when he volunteered for a polygraph exam. Oops.
Anderson put the wraps on Jolly’s social life last month when he severely tightened the bond restrictions for the Green Bay Packers defensive end. Per the report, a polygraph services company concluded that Jolly was “deceptive” when it came to questions about the consumption of alcoholic beverages. Jolly faces up t0 20 years in jail for possession of codeine if he is convicted.
Specifically, Jolly was deceptive when asked if he has consumed alcoholic beverages since Dec. 15, 2009, and if he was deliberately not telling the questioner about the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Shortly after that polygraph test, Anderson threw tighter restrictions at Jolly, including a curfew from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and an order to avoid any establishments that serve booze.
Now, we’ll see if Jolly’s trial actually gets going on Friday.
