Chad Johnson Goes to Jail and Gets Released

Johnson Mugshot

He is the butt of many jokes, though, he doesn’t every seem to realize it.  Chad Johnson did little to help his terrible reputation when he slapped his lawyer, Adam Swickle, on the rear end after the judge asked him how he thinks his lawyer was doing during a hearing for a probation violation.  Judge Kathleen McHugh then sentenced Johnson to 30 days in jail for his behavior in the court room.

I just wanted to apologize for disrespecting the court last time.  I apologize. I did have time to reflect on the mistakes I made in this courtroom.

-Chad Johnson

Johnson was in jail for seven days when he was released after the judge accepted his apology.  Somewhere in between all of this Johnson was visited by fellow former NFL star who has fallen from glory Terrell Owens.  Keep an eye out for special prop bets for which former player will do something stupid that lands them in the news next.
