Police responded to Chung’s lakeside home in Meredith for a possible break-in because an alarm went off. While inside, police say they found cocaine.

Chung was scheduled to be arraigned on Wednesday in New Hampshire. On Monday, a New Hampshire Supreme Court spokesman said Chung pleaded not guilty, waived his arraignment and is next scheduled for a dispositional conference on November 8 in Belknap County Superior Court in Laconia.

The veteran safety returned to the practice field on Sunday. He was not present Thursday when the team played the Panthers in the preseason.

On Monday, he spoke to reporters in the locker room in advance of Thursday’s preseason finale against the New York Giants. Chung said he was “here to talk about the Giants” and did not answer questions about the indictment.
