Chad Johnson received 30 days in prison after getting off completely….for giving his lawyer a congratulatory tap on the backside. 30 days for this in jail for this?
I think that is not only excessive, but outrageous. I can see she didn’t want people laughing, but it wasn’t Chad laughing. He didn’t cock his hand back and slap his lawyers butt so hard that it made a noise.
He just said I think “good job” and tapped it lightly. It’s a football thing. They tap each other on the butt to congratulate each other after a good play. I think the judge made a huge mistake because the people in the audience were the ones laughing.
She just put a nail in Chads NFL future. It’s sad because he was making a lot of progress and it looked like a team would end up taking a chance on him this season. That’s not going to happen now. All because a judge overreacted to the “other people” laughing in her court room.
On another note, I don’t what was so funny about it. He just tapped him on the butt and that was it. It was a tiny action that got a huge reaction and a giant overreaction on the judge’s part. Good luck Chad, because he didn’t deserve to go out like this.
