Chad Johnson arrested again? Chad Johnson wishes he could pretend his former marriage to “Basketball Wives” star Evelyn Lozada never happened, but considering that he’s still on probation for head butting the reality star, that’s going to be a pretty tough feat to achieve. And to make matters worse, Chad missed a scheduled meeting with his Probation Officer recently, and as a result of being a no-show, he was arrested. It now appears he will spend even more time in jail as reports are now claiming he was just ordered to serve 30 days in jail during this morning’s court appearance. Of course the jail time is a result of his recent probation violation. TMZ reports:
Chad Johnson was just arrested and placed in handcuffs inside a Florida courtroom … after the judge in his probation violation hearing ordered the ex-NFL star to spend 30 days in jail.
The move comes after Johnson pissed off the Broward County judge by slapping his male lawyer’s butt during the hearing.
As we previously reported, Johnson’s attorney was thiiiis close to sealing a deal that would have kept Johnson OUT of jail for violating his probation earlier this year.
But the butt slap enraged the judge … and she took the deal off the table.
Interestingly enough, Chad was just on ESPN’s First Take and claimed his recent probation violation was a “miscommunication” and he had full faith things would be resolved. The former football player also confirmed he wants to get back into the NFL, so we can only imagine how bad this looks to potential teams.
