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.”
