L.J. Cops A Plea

Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has resolved two legal entanglements that resulted in his one-game unpaid suspension last season from the league, and a multiple-game paid vacation from the team.
According to Tony Rizzo of the Kansas City Star, Johnson has pleaded guilty to two counts of disturbing the peace arising from two separate incidents involving women and a night club.
On February 24, 2008, a woman claimed that Johnson shoved her on the side of the head.
In October 20098, a different woman alleged that Johnson spit a drink in her face and threatened her boyfriend.
For his sentence, Johnson was placed on two years of probation.
He originally was charged with assault, but the offenses were reduced in connection with the plea deal.
Since Johnson already has been disciplined by the league office for these arrests, it’s unclear whether the guilty pleas will trigger a new punishment.

    I’m sure…..LJ, who went to that notorious hood of a college called Happy Valley, is beaming with hood recoginition, after all, he has to deny the stigma that his dad was an assistant coach of his alma mater, he grew up in the mean streets, this way he can hang out with Jay-Z and the like at the next 10 NBA all star games…..Keeping it real, maybe he will be Chris Brown’s lawyer now?

    He was disciplined by the team. The league has done nothing yet.

    I’m glad he’s not going to jail. Larry’s marrying my daughter soon, in a few weeks, and I’d hate to have to reschedule the caterer.

    how come this guy gets a pass from your vile opinions when reporting?
    hint: think of how you covered TO & his award the other night.
    Now just project that onto someone who deserves it.
    ie. LJ.

    Pantherfan105, yeah, he can’t break tackles. That’s why he ran for more than 1700+ yards and 37 TDs in 2005 and 2006. You’re knowledgable.

    Over and over again, this guy continues to earn one of my favorite nicknames in sports: “smelLJ.” You can hang onto that one, Mr. Florio.
