Tough day at the office for ESPN NFL analyst Jeremy Green, son of former NFL coach Dennis Green. Jeremy Green was arrested on drug and child pornography charges in Connecticut. Bristol Police served Green, 38, with an arrest warrant at a Hartford area hotel, where he was apparently living. He has been taken into custody and it is unknown whether he plans to make bail.

The Hartford Courant is reporting that Green was charged with first-degree possession of child pornography, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held on $750,000 bail.

Possessing child pornography in the first degree is a Class B felony in Connecticut. A person is guilty of possessing child pornography in the first degree when they knowingly possesses fifty or more visual depictions of child pornography.

Green is employed by ESPN.com and was an NFL scout for 11 years. He was currently listed as as a contributing writer for the site. Green hosted the daily American football podcast "Football Today" until recently being removed indefinitely due to "personal reasons."

Green was formerly a scout for several National Football League teams and director of pro personnel for the Cleveland Browns. He is scheduled in Bristol Superior Court for arraignment today, court officials said. It is unknown at this time if he has an attorney.

ESPN has not made a statement. The sports network has had a number of high profile employees experience legal troubles over the years, including Michael Irvin who was arrested for drug possession and Steve Phillips who had an affair with 22-year-old ESPN production assistant Brooke Hundley, who sued for sexual harassment.
