Larry Johnson now has five arrests on his record for varying degrees of assault against women—that's three more arrests for assaulting women than Johnson had 1000-yard rushing seasons as a player. This time the details are especially gory. Per TMZ:
According to the report, the alleged victim identifies herself as Johnson's ex-girlfriend — and told police LJ beat the crap out of her and strangled her until she blacked out early Friday morning inside of a room at the Bellagio Hotel.
The GF told police ... while Johnson was strangling her, she told him, "If you are going to kill me squeeze harder and just do it."
The GF says she then blacked out and lost consciousness.
As for why he attacked her in the first place, the woman told police she and Johnson had been partying and drinking together when they went up to his room to "catch up." But the GF claims LJ became enraged when they started talking about his daughter. She claims LJ snapped and began to "beat her and throw her around the room" and eventually choked her out.
According to the report, the GF told police she regained consciousness in a hotel hallway while dressed only in her underwear and a see-through blouse. The GF says she banged on doors until someone called for help.
When guards brought him to the hotel's security office, Johnson told one of the that he was going to "rip [his] f*cking vocal cords out." Seems like a nice guy! Johnson spent 18 hours in jail, posted his $15,000 bail, and was released this morning. That's what they call "Vegas justice."
