Chad Johnson Gets 30 Days In Jail After Slapping Lawyer's Butt
Chad Johnson, formally Chad Ochocinco, was sentenced to 30 days in jail after infuriating a judge during a plea bargaining arrangement.
Chad was set to only get probation after her had a physical altercation with his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, during which he allegedly headbutted her. She filed for divorced three days later.
However, after he was asked by the judge if he was satisfied with his lawyer, Chad responded with a compliment usually seen in the NFL: a pat on the butt.
Everyone in the courtroom had a chuckle - except for Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh. "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."
McHugh could have given Chad up to a year in jail for his altercation with his wife. Instead, he got 30 days. "It's not the first time he's behaved that way in my courtroom," the judge later said.
After his sentencing, Johnson took to his Twitter.com page to tell fans, "Love me through the good and the bad because I'm gone love you regardless... See you in 30."
