Poor poor silly Chad Johnson. Yep, that Chad Johnson who once changed his named to Ochocinco. He was arrested in court yesterday after first getting a no jail time plea deal then the judge reversing that decision after Johnson slapped his attorney on the butt.


Yeah, it’s one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard. Here’s what went down. Chad and his attorneys were in a Florida courtroom yesterday finalizing a plea deal for a probation violation. All parties accepted the pretty sweet deal and all would’ve been fine after some community service and a little more parole time.

The key word here is “would’ve”. Chad decided then he would give his attorney the ole football butt slap. At this, the judge presiding did not take a fancy to.

The judge flipped out and reversed her decision to the plea deal. She said, “I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously . . . is there something funny about what’s going on here today?”

Johnson was then cuffed and ordered to jail for 30 days.
