TMZ – 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.  Now, Johnson’s punishment is much harsher than what was originally proposed — and he has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail.  His probation was also extended until December 21, 2013 … and he must complete an additional 25 hours of community service along with extra therapy sessions.


Gotta love Ochocinco here, sure he may just be a dried up old NFL football player now, but even when he is not playing on the gridiron, he’s still brining the heat. It’s these types of antics, that made him the football player he was, it was things like this that made him so popular to the general public throughout all of these years. But how bad of a buzzkill must it be for Ochocinco here? One minute you are a free man, the next minute after your victory slap, you are sentenced to 30 days in jail brutal. Also, the deputy or court bailiffs reaction was priceless. Kind of made that GIF.


PS-  Chad Johnson:  30 days in jail for slapping a butt.  Josh Brent:  walking around kicking it after killing his friend while drunk driving then failing a drug test on probation.   Just throwing that out there.
