Jamaican-born NFL star Patrick Chung has been indicted in New Hampshire on a charge of cocaine possession.

A Belknap County grand jury indicted the 32-year-old New England Patriots safety on August 8. Authorities say Chung knowingly possessed cocaine on June 25 while in Meredith.

Chung's arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday.

Chung, whose mother is Jamaican singer Sophia George, best known for the 1980s hit 'Girlie Girlie', has played for the Patriots for nine of his 10 NFL seasons and won three Super Bowls.

The Laconia Sun reports town records show that Chung owns a lakeside home in Meredith.

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

The Associated Press left a message seeking comment with a spokesperson for the Patriots. The voicemail box for Chung's agent was full.
