From Comcast SportsNet HOUSTON (AP) -- Suspended Green Bay Packers defensive lineman Johnny Jolly has been arrested and charged with drug possession and tampering with evidence. Jolly remained in the Harris County jail Monday after being charged Saturday with possession of a compound containing codeine. Records show he also was charged with attempting to conceal the substance from investigators. A Harris County sheriff's spokeswoman said no attorney was listed for Jolly and that a bond had not been set. Jolly received probation in April after pleading guilty to a 2008 charge of possessing codeine. The deal allowed a similar charge from March to be dropped. Jolly grew up in Houston and attended Texas A&M. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL in July 2010 and did not play for the Packers during their Super Bowl-winning season.
