Chad Johnson’s football career is slipping away. Unfortunately, he was sent to jail today after jokingly slapping his male lawyer on the butt. While this is a common practice among athletes in the locker room, the judge did not have a sense of humor. I’m not sure if sending him to jail was necessary….but when it rains, it pours.
According to TMZ and TheYBF:
So he and his lawyer were in a Florida courtroom today on a probation violation hearing. And they were getting thisclose to sealing a deal that would actually get Chad off with a slap on the wrist. But noooooooo. Chad had to go and piss off the Broward County judge by slapping the butt of his male lawyer.
We all know judges don’t have time for games, and esp. don’t like inappropriate and insulting behavior in their courtrooms. So instead of the judge signing off on a deal that was damn near done, the judge changed her mind and had Chad cuffed! And off to jail he goes…for a month!
Now, Johnson’s punishment is much harsher than what was originally proposed — and he has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail.
His probation was also extended until December 21, 2013 … and he must complete an additional 25 hours of community service along with extra therapy sessions.
Chad tweeted a final goodbye just 30 minutes ago saying:
Love me through the good and the bad because I’m gone love you regardless… See you in 30…
