A contrite Chad Johnson apologized Monday for disrespecting a judge when the former NFL star slapped his attorney on the backside in court last week and was released from jail after only a week instead of 30 days.
Broward Judge Kathleen McHugh said Johnson wasn’t taking things seriously enough, even after he apologized.
Chad Johnson was barely a factor in last season’s AFC East race while with the Patriots. This year, Rex Ryan and the Jets won’t have to worry about defending the once-feared wide receiver, who was hoping to resurrect his career in Miami.
Cable TV is getting ready to chronicle another sports-related celebrity wedding, this time involving NFL wide receiver Chad Ochocinco and “Basketball Wife” star Evelyn Lozada.
