    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.

    LJ sure is a role model, ain't he? One more distraction for an already struggling team.

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been charged with simple assault for allegedly pushing a woman at a Kansas City nightclub in February, the third time he has faced assault charges against a woman.

    Johnson, 28, was charged last month for a Feb. 24 incident at the Grand Emporium Saloon. A 26-year-old woman accused Johnson of pushing the side of her head with an open hand, telling her "don't touch me" as he made his way through the club.

    Johnson is due to appear in Kansas City Municipal Court on Dec. 3 and faces a maximum jail term of six months and a $500 fine.

    Capt. Rich Lockhart, spokesman for the Kansas City Police Department, said the charges were filed more than six months after the incident because the investigation worked around more pressing assault cases and detectives had trouble locating a witness.

    Johnson was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery in 2003 for allegedly waving a gun during an argument with a former girlfriend at his home. The charges were later dropped when he agreed to a domestic violence diversion program.

    Charges against Johnson in 2005 were dropped after a woman who had accused him of pushing her to the ground at a Kansas City bar decided not to press charges and failed to appear in three court hearings.

So, my point is that it doesn't have to take two or three years to fiz an O line!!!
    Unless there are several holes, and zero depth. Then it might take years.

    Seriously, LJ hasn't exactly bee any kind of model citizen. The fact that he paid some women to get them to drop their cases doesn't mean that he didn't do anything.

    Yes, some people go after celebs for a quick payoff. There's no doubting that. But, if you know that, then you know that some celebs pay-off trouble.

    If you are the kind of celeb who pays-off trouble, then you can expect more people to come looking for a pay-off.

    I ceratinly don't know that he shoved this womans head, but I wouldn't put it past him. He has a reputation for thinking that he is better than everybody else. And this would certainly fall in line with that personality.

    But we will probably never hear of this again, as he will likely throw some money at it, and it will be gone.

    And what does that have to do with us? The truth will come out. If he is guilty he has to pay the price and do the time. It might be what the chiefs need.

    I would bet 75% of cases brought against athletes or celebs end in some sort of out of court settlement for one reason or another!!!

    The only reason a beer sweats around Canada is because he's decided it will be the next beer he drinks.
