Well, Bengals cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones punched a woman for throwing a drink at him, and free agent Chad Johnson got in trouble for slapping his male lawyer’s ass at a probation violation hearing.
Jones pleaded not guilty (even though TMZ has a surveillance video), and Johnson is currently trying to talk his way out of a 30 day jail sentence because he made the whole courtroom chuckle.
“I don’t know that you’re taking this whole thing seriously,” the honorable judge so-and-so said. “I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about what’s going on here today?”
“I had no intent to make this a joke, because my life is in shambles right now,” Johnson replied.
Obviously Pacman and Chad deserve punishment for assaulting women (Johnson is on probation for head-butting his wife in 2012) but, as somebody who was sent to the principal’s office for playing class clown, I’m feeling minor sympathy for Ochocinco.
His sentence shouldn’t change based on something as silly as a non-aggressive man-on-man booty tap.
