QUINCY, Mass. (AP) Former New England Patriots safety Patrick Chung was charged Tuesday in Massachusetts with assault and battery on a family or household member.
Chung, 34, appeared in court Tuesday for arraignment with his fiancee and parents in attendance. Prosecutors allege he pushed a woman to the ground, slapped her in the face and broke her phone Monday outside of her home in Milton.
Chung, who has resided in Norton, Massachusetts, since retiring from the NFL before the 2021 season, was also charged with vandalizing property. He was released on Tuesday without bail, the Patriot Ledger reported.
