Patrick Chung is accused of shoving a lady to the ground, slapping her across the face, and smashing her phone. Chung arrived in court alongside his fiancée and parents. On Monday outside of her house, the three-time Super Bowl winner reportedly slammed a lady to the ground, hit her in the face, and shattered her phone. On Tuesday, Chung was arraigned in Quincy.
Chung was also charged with property vandalism. According to the Patriot Ledger, the lady who accused Chung of assault requested a restraining order against him, which was granted by Quincy District Court Judge Neil Hourihan. Chung was freed without bond on Tuesday.
“Patrick’s conduct has been irregular for a long time,” said the lady in court, who did not want to be recognized by the Patriot Ledger. “His actions were erratic. It was a harsh environment. It appeared to be planned.”
Chung’s fiancée spoke for him, claiming that the lady assaulted him as he attempted to leave her home. Sandy Pesiridis, his attorney, said her client was eager to be proven innocent and that the case was “far more suited for probate and family court.”
Chung retired from the NFL after playing with the Patriots from 2009 to 2012 and again from 2014 to 2020. He has 773 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, 56 pass breakups, and 11 interceptions during his career.
Chung was also chosen to the All-Decade Team for the Patriots in 2010. The next court appearance is set on January 7.
