“It was all set until Johnson, when asked by [Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh] if he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, gave the attorney a light swat on the rear — as football players routinely do to each other on the field. The courtroom erupted in laughter and at that McHugh said she wouldn’t accept the deal.

“‘I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this?’ McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. ‘The whole courtroom was laughing. I’m not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn’t a joke.'” – AP



uch: Former NFL star and notorious diva Chad Johnson K Ochocinco almost got off with community service, counseling and probation (for headbutting his wife in August) in Broward county court today until he decided to buttslap his lawyer, Adam Swickle, at the conclusion of the hearing, the courtroom erupted in laughter, and he was immediately dealt 30 days in jail! The Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh originally tacked on three months probation with the community service and counseling in the plea bargain, but once Johnson slapped his lawyer in the butt, Judge McHugh felt like he wasn’t taking it seriously! Johnson seemed to be getting his back on track a year ago when he signed with the Miami Dolphins and got married to Evelyn Lozada on July 4, but a short 41 days later he lost it and headbutted his newlywed model wife?! Besides the immediate charges and divorce that quickly followed the Dolphins cut him live on HBO Hard Knocks! Things fell apart quickly for the re-emerging star, and he still seem to think it funny?! Forget about role model, Johnson gonna be working at Starbucks if he keep messing around! Check out details and view the fresh takes above!

What do you think? Does he deserve the respect of the public yet? Do you think that the courtroom slap was way over the top or ok? Leave a comment below!
