Ex-NFL player Chad Johnson, better know as Chad Ochocinco, was arrested in the courtroom Monday morning and was sentenced to serve 30 days in the county jail because he gave his attorney a slap on the rear end. Chad was receiving charges for violating probation following his 2012 domestic violence case with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.
The judge took offense to the gesture and said,
I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this? The whole courtroom was laughing. I’m not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn’t a joke.”
Johnson attempted to apologize but it didn’t work in his favor.
This is your courtroom. I have no intent to make this a joke. It’s not funny. My life is in a shambles right now, and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face.”
The original charges for his probation were extended until Dec. 21, 2013, and he must complete 25 hours of community service. And now, he has to serve time behind bars. Smh.
