Chad Johnson, who was once a famous and talented football player, is going to jail on a probation violation. The reason he's landed himself there? Some locker-room-style maneuvering in the courtroom. Inherit the Wind meets Playmakers, or something. From—where else?—TMZ:
Chad Johnson was just kicked out of a Florida courtroom ... after the former NFL star playfully slapped his male lawyer's ass — a move that ENRAGED the judge, TMZ has learned. ...
During the hearing, the judge and Chad's lawyer were about to finalize the terms of Chad's punishment — terms that were pretty favorable to Chad.
But the whole thing fell apart at the last minute, when the judge asked Chad if he was satisfied with his attorney — and the ex-NFL star reached back and playfully slapped his lawyer's ass.
The judge — who lost her patience — suddenly announced that Chad's deal was OFF ... and kicked him out of the courtroom.
Johnson got 30 days in jail and an extension of his probation. He is dumb; the legal system is dumb. Everyone is dumb.
