This isn't the only time Johnson has found himself in a bad situation back home. In January of this year, Johnson was arrested in Orlando on a gun charge, and a couple years ago a house he and other NFL players frequented to have sex at was at the center of an investigation of the shooting of a 15-year-old girl.

According to the sheriff's office, police responded to a call at approximately 4 a.m. at an intersection and found a Jeep with one deceased male inside and two male passengers with gunshot wounds out on the sidewalk. Police said the victims related that an unknown vehicle had pulled up alongside them at a red light, and that someone then opened fire.

Chris Johnson and Reggie Johnson were transported to a local hospital. No arrests have been made, and the incident is still under investigation.
