Chad Johnson in Custody

Chad Johnson in Custody - Chad Johnson in custody: Judge sends Johnson to jail for probation violation, CWith Chad Johnson in custody for allegedly violating his probation, prosecutors want the former NFL star to serve time. Johnson appeared in court on May 20 and E! Online reported that he ended up in jail after making this appearance.

A warrant was issued for Johnson's appearance because he failed to report to a probation officer stemming from his domestic violence case. Johnson said he did not skip the meeting on purpose and that the missed appointment was a misunderstanding.

The judge in the case did not buy it and ordered that Chad Johnson be taken into custody and put a $1,000 bond on him. The prosecutors in the case asked for the judge to sentence Johnson to 60 days in jail for the probation violation. The judge will make a decision on this on June 3.

The problems began when Johnson worked out a plea deal with prosecutors after a misdemeanor battery charge was brought against him for allegedly roughing up his wife at the time, Evelyn Lozada. Now, with Chad Johnson in custody once again, jail time might still be on the horizon for the former NFL star.
