Chad Johnson To Be Released From Jail After Apologizing To Judge

Handout

After former Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson apologized to the judge, he was ordered to be released from jail.

Former Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson apologized to Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh for his actions during his earlier court date and was ordered to be released from jail, reducing his sentence from 30 days in jail to seven, according to WCPO.

Johnson slapped his attorney on the butt when he was handing in a plea deal, which was rejected by the judge because she didn't think Johnson was taking his situation seriously enough. He was then sentenced to 30 days in jail for probation violation when Johnson failed to report to his probation officer.

Johnson is the Bengals' all-time leading receiver, but has taken a large fall from the days when he was constantly among the top receivers in the AFC. He was traded to the Patriots before the 2011 season, and was released following one of his least productive seasons in his career. Then he was cut by the Dolphins before the 2012 season after his arrest for domestic abuse.

Johnson is now seemingly a long way from returning to the NFL and his career could be at an end. If that's the case, Johnson will have finished with 766 catches for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns.
