Former Miami Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson was ordered to serve one month in the Broward County lockup — for slapping his lawyer on the BUTT during a court hearing this morning!
Former Cincinnati Bengal Johnson, 35, was appearing at a hearing in Fort Lauderdale for a plea deal in his recent arrest for violation probation.
The deal worked out by lawyer Adam Swickle was to keep the former Ochocinco out of jail.
But when Judge Kathleen McHugh asked Johnson if he felt he had been properly represented, he told her he did — and playfully patted Swickle on the behind as the courtroom erupted in laughter.
McHugh, a rookie elected official pushed by the Tea Party, then asked Johnson if the court system was a “joke” to him? Johnson suddenly became serious and told her he didn’t intend to turn it into a joke.
Despite plenty apologies from Johnson and Swickle, McHugh rejected the plea and had Johnson arrested and shipped to jail.
Johnson was accused of violating probation last month for missing two appointments with his probation officer and not completing domestic violence counseling. Johnson was accused of roughing up his wife, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada at home in Davie during an argument over condoms.
