Some background: Last month former Miami Dolphin Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was arrested after violating his probation from his 2012 domestic violence arrest when he headbutted his then-wife Evelyn Lozada after she found a receipt for condoms in his car. Jump to today where Chad’s lawyer was literally about to seal a deal that would keep him out of jail until he decided to slap his male lawyer’s ass in the courtroom which went over awesome with the judge. TMZ reports:

During the hearing, the judge and Chad’s lawyer were about to finalize the terms of Chad’s punishment — terms that were pretty favorable to Chad.
But the whole thing fell apart at the last minute, when the judge asked Chad if he was satisfied with his attorney — and the ex-NFL star reached back and playfully slapped his lawyer’s ass.
Chad smiled … the court erupted with laughter …. but the judge wasn’t amused.
In fact, the judge found the move disrespectful — and lashed out at Johnson … asking him if the whole proceeding was a “joke” to him.
Johnson replied, “I had no intent to make this a joke, because my life is in shambles right now.”
The judge — who lost her patience — suddenly announced that Chad’s deal was OFF … and kicked him out of the courtroom.

And by kicked him out of the courtroom that would be to jail because he’s in jail now. Although, in Ochocinco’s defense, at least he didn’t hit a woman this time which is exactly the kind of argument that proves I should be a lawyer along with “Oh, what, ’cause he’s black?!” and “Well, excuse me for living.”

    I know you have to be respectful in court but c’mon now. This is just another person in power who likes to remind people of it whenever they get the chance. They don’t want to be respected, they want their asses kissed. Guy is on hard times and trying to get his life together and fix his mistakes, this isn’t going to do anything to help. And isn’t that kind of the point of the justice system? Or is it just to show off and put people in jail because you can.

      He’s a piece of shit.

      If I was her, i would’ve locked him away for life. No parole for the fact he sucked in the NFL.

    • JC

      I know, right? When will someone finally stand up and protect the multi-millionaire professional athletes? They can’t get away with anything!

      • Jon

        I couldn’t care less if it was a celebrity or not. What if it was your brother or son? The Judge said he had a very good lawyer, Chad said he was pleased with his performance and slapped him on the lower back/butt…something that is engraved with him from the sports world that says good job. Obviously it wasn’t a good idea, but that is not the point. The judge had already agreed to take the plea agreement unofficially and decided against it because of something incredibly silly. Police officers, judges, and pretty much everybody in power acts like this when it’s not necessary. She could have just told him that she felt it was disrespectful and moved on.

      • Don’t rewrite it. The judge asked if he was satisfied with his attorney – she didn’t make a complimentary statement and look to him to high-five his lawyer’s ass in agreement and then turn all pissy on him. He’d already amply demonstrated his share of disrespect by blowing off two probation meetings and not doing the mandated violence classes – the plea agreement for community service, counseling, and three extra months of probation was probably more than any other felon would get, and he was flippant, treated it like a joke, and tanked it. 30 days in jail isn’t exactly the end of the world, either – that’s all the plea deal that failed would’ve saved him from.

        He also showed up in court looking like it was Casual Monday – if you want the court to think you take the proceedings seriously, then fucking look and act like it.

    • The purpose of the criminal justice system isn’t to “help” you when you fuck up by violating your probation for assault – the probation already is the “help”, to see if you can function within its guidelines. Johnson couldn’t – he was a no-show for two probation appointments and he didn’t bother to enroll in a court-mandated domestic violence education class, which is why an arrest warrant was issued for him. So it’s not just a slap on the ass that he’s being busted for. The whole point of the system is to hand out penalties when you violate the laws that everyone’s supposed to live by, so that hopefully the consequences are so unpleasant that you learn not to do it again. It’s not there to say, “aw, gee, the poor guy just can’t seem to keep his hands off anyone, can he? We might as well let him off the hook forever, he’s in a bunch of trouble and he obviously can’t learn anything and we can’t make him, either!”

      Would you trot out the “poor guy” argument for Lindsay Lohan, who’s so overdue for correction that it’s embarrassing?

      • Jon

        Yeah, our tax dollars are hard at work paying for Chad to be in jail now because some judge got personally offended. She had agreed to accept the plea deal…the fact that she then rejected it and threw him in jail is ridiculous.

      • Deacon Jones

        He knew exactly what he was doing when he slapped his lawyer on the ass. He’s a clown, and always has been.

        He did it for a laugh and got it out of the courtroom, all this after the judge was ready to cut him a deal 99.9% of the rest of us wouldnt have gotten.

        So fuck him. I have zero fucking respect for any guy that beats a woman.

      • Balls. Your tax dollars were hard at work paying for him to be tracked down and arrested, the same way they also paid for his probation officer to sit through two meetings he didn’t show up for. Jerks like him cost the system no matter what. And since it’s way cheaper to release everyone from prison and stop feeding them with our tax dollars, I suggest we start with the correctional facilities in your area first.

      • Can you imagine what would have happened had his attorney been a woman and he slapped her on the ass in front of that judge? Sexual assault, another felony, 10-15 years.

  2. Chris Brown

    Hell yeah! Serves him right! In fact, lock up EVERY man who . . . Uh, let me rephrase.

  3. You don’t fuck around in a courtroom. this is something every lawyer makes god damned sure their client knows.

    This isn’t an example of unchecked power by a despot in control of their tiny slice of the world, it’s a “test”. It’s a test to see if the shitheads can actually manage to suppress their thuggery for a few minutes out of a single day and act like a responsible human being.

    If someone fails this test, off to jail they go and the world is a little better for it.

    • His attorney is an officer of the court, just as the judge is, and it’s flat-out disrespectful to both. Spanking his lawyer’s ass obviously went over in this court as well as smacking a ref’s butt would go over in a basketball one. There’s a time and a place to fool around, and a sentencing hearing sure as fuck isn’t it.

      If you go around with an attitude that you own the world and you deserve to be the center of attention and everyone’s really just there to serve you, then a tour of your domain really should include a visit to the lockup. You know, just to see how the rest of your subjects are doing.

    • I wanna slap Gloria Allred’s tight ass.

  4. Chad should have never left Cincinnati. It’s all been downhill since then.

  5. This is the first time I’ve seen a post about the American justice system where a ‘celebrity’ actually went to jail! O.o

  6. Where’s this judge when Lindsay Lohan is in court? If only

  7. Colin

    I think that’s a little overkill. From the title, I thought it was going to be a female lawyer and a sexual harassment type thing, but that’s a little overkill. Hold him in contempt of court if you wanna be a douche about it, but seeing as how no one (except the judge) seemed to care, revoking a deal over one small instance of improper courtroom etiquette is way out of line.

    • Don’t come to court and play the clown unless you want to pay the cost. It’s really that simple. Bottom line, you’re at the mercy of the judge and if they have a sense of humor, their digestion is good and if they’ve been laid recently will all play a factor.

  8. Hugh Evers

    Dude has emerged post NFL as an obnoxious sad clown… Who saw it coming? He always seemed so well put together. I thought he might be in the senate at this point and yet it turns out he is a freak. Crazy world.

  9. Jenn

    Always obey the Cafeteria Line Rule as learned in Kindergarten. Keep your mouth shut, and keep your hands to yourself. It’d save these dumbasses a helluva lot of jail time and money.

  10. Ochocinco no think-o.
