    Chiefs RB Johnson reportedly to face assault charge in December

    ESPN.com news services






    Updated: October 14, 2008, 1:58 AM ET



    Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson will answer a charge of simple assault December in Kansas City Municipal Court, the Kansas City Star reported on Tuesday night.

    Citing police and court documents, the newspaper said that a 26-year-old woman accused Johnson of pushing her on the side of the head at a nightclub on Feb. 24, 2008.
    Johnson's lawyer, Kevin E.J. Regan, told the newspaper that his client will be vindicated at trial. He claimed that the woman did not inform management, security officers or police at the club of the incident but waited 11 hours to report the alleged assault.
    Capt. Rich Lockhart, a police spokesman, said charges did not come for six months because the police force was working on more pressing cases. The delay made if difficult to find a witness, who was finally interviewed in July or August.
    That witness then picked Johnson out of a lineup.
    "One has to question the fairness of a lineup shown six months later, involving someone whose photograph is published often in the media," Regan said, according to the Star.
    Johnson could be sentenced to six months in jail and a $500 fine if convicted.

    I do consider LJ a veteran, but the light in his his star is burned out. LJ is not the team player we need for these young guys to look up to. JMHO.

    This is a ridiculous statement!!!! Teams improve their o lines every single year!!!! Trust me I know, I live in Az and watched the Cardinals do it this year!! They were terrible last year and now have a middle of the league O line. If LJ had a mediocre line and an OC that would give him the ball more than 7 times a game, he would have great numbers!!!! So, my point is that it doesn't have to take two or three years to fiz an O line!!!

    Good viewpoints guys. There needs to be more to being a good mentor than simply rushing experience and success. His behavior issues significantly mar that influence.

    Just like T.O. when he was an Eagle. Some said all that mattered was the Eagles were a better team with him on the field. Yet, because of his behavior he also did much to hurt the team.

    To compare LJ to Terrell Owens is crazy talk!!!!!! T O has done it to 3 teams now and way way more to the extent of disruption than LJ has even been close to! There should be no comparison!

    I think a comparison to T.O. is right on the money. However, he seems to have matured in Dallas. LJ seems to get worse every year.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to give the implication that I think of LJ the same as TO! I can't stand TO. I was only using an analogy with TO in agreeing with the point raised that LJ is not really a good leader or mentor for the team because of his off the field incidents and his frequent complaining. But TO is a whack job and causes far more disruption and disunity to a team than LJ ever could!

    Won't it be interesting to see if Roy Williams causes TO to complain even more now about not getting the ball thrown to him enough, heh!

    Edit: On the other hand, Roy Williams gives the Cowboys so many weapons now and thus will increase their chances of winning games even more. And TO seems to behave as long as his teams keep winning.
