Chad Johnson was kicked out of a Florida courtroom yesterday when the judge presiding over his hearing took serious exception to him slapping his male lawyer's ass when asked if he was satisfied with his attourney. In court for violating his probation in his domestic violence case and just about to settle on favorable terms for Chad, the judge lost her patience and ripped into the former NFL star following the ass slap and the courtroom's eruption of laughter.
I don't know that you're taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this? The whole courtroom was laughing. I'm not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn't a joke.
Johnson told the judge “My life is in a shambles right now and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face.” Chad and his attorney were in front of the judge again this morning apologizing and trying to convince the judge to accept the original terms. Turns out she wasn't moved by his statements and had him handcuffed and hauled off to jail to serve out a sentence of 30 days in jail and yet another setback in his career.
As possibly the only Cincinnati Bengals fan in New York, I have a special spot in my heard for my man Chad Johnson. Yes, he changed his last name to a number, attempted to ride in a rodeo and try out for an MLS soccer team during the lockout, but he still holds damn near every Bengals receiving record and provided us with gems like, “On the highway, I hit a deer. I kept him. He's at home in the garage on the rafters. I'm going to use him for the celebration this weekend. He's a prop. They might suspend me for the last game, but I think this one is worth it. This is going to be the greatest celebration of all time, man. I actually use an animal.'
