Former Chargers football star Chuck Muncie was sentenced to 21/2 years in federal prison for perjury and dealing cocaine as a judge ignored pleas for leniency from a former Chargers coach and others.

U.S. District Judge J. Lawrence Irving sentenced Muncie to 18 months in prison on his Dec. 12 guilty plea to dealing two ounces of cocaine to an undercover federal agent, and then added another year for perjury.
