    Chiefs' Johnson under investigation for latest incident involving a woman

    ESPN.com news services






    Updated: October 20, 2008, 10:38 PM ET



    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson is being investigated for allegedly spitting a drink in a woman's face at a nightclub, the fourth time in five years he's been accused of assaulting a woman.
    Kansas City police are looking into a report of nonaggravated assault against Johnson for telling a woman that he was going to kill her boyfriend then spitting in her face at Club Blonde on Oct. 10.


    Johnson


    The case has been assigned to a detective and will be investigated as resources allow, police spokesman Capt. Rich Lockhart said. Johnson has not been charged.
    Ashley Stewart, 24, told police she had left the nightclub in Kansas City's Country Club Plaza district but re-entered around 1:45 a.m. to find a friend. Johnson, who had tried to buy her a drink at the same club a week earlier, asked the friend to have Stewart come over, according to the police report.
    Johnson got close to Stewart while swinging his arms belligerently, then said, "All I wanted [to] tell you is I'm going to kill your boyfriend," the report said.
    Johnson kept talking to Stewart and spit the drink in her face after she backed away, the report said.
    Stewart told police that Johnson's bodyguards then tackled her and that bouncers from the club escorted her outside. Johnson tried to spit on her three more times while walking to his car after the club manager asked him to leave, the report said.
    Johnson already faces a Dec. 3 court date on a charge of simple assault for shoving the side of a woman's face at a club in February. He faces a maximum jail term of six months and a $500 fine on the charge filed last month.
    The Chiefs deactivated Johnson for Sunday's game against Tennessee for violating unspecified team rules. A team spokesman said the benching was unrelated to the current investigation, and coach Herm Edwards said Monday that Johnson is expected to play this week against the New York Jets.
    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined comment, saying the league had nothing to add to a statement issued by Chiefs general manager Carl Peterson on Sunday.
    Sources told ESPN's Michael Smith that the pattern of behavior will lead to a possible suspension for Johnson under the NFL's personal conduct policy.
    "It's just a matter of for how long," one source told Smith.
    A source close the situation told ESPN.com's Bill Williamson that Johnson has not had any meetings with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell or has been told of a pending punishment. The source doesn't necessarily believe Johnson is in the clear, but he simply has not been told of any news yet.
    The Chiefs acknowledged Johnson's latest troubles in a statement Sunday.
    "We are aware of the most recent incident involving Larry Johnson and we are very disappointed with his involvement," team president Carl Peterson said. "We will cooperate fully with the Kansas City authorities who are investigating the matter. We have also made the NFL office in New York aware of the incident and officials there are conducting their own independent investigation.
    "Based upon the NFL Player Conduct Policy, we will have no further comment."
    Johnson's troubles are nothing new.
    He was charged in 2003 with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery for waving a gun during an argument with a former girlfriend at his home. The charges were dropped when Johnson agreed to participate in a domestic violence diversion program.
    Johnson also had charges against him dropped in 2005 after a woman who accused him of pushing her to the ground at a Kansas City bar failed to appear in three court hearings.
    Johnson has rushed for 417 yards and three touchdowns for the Chiefs, who lost to Tennessee to fall to 1-5. In August 2007, the club signed its 2003 first-round draft pick to a six-year, $45 million extension that included $19 million in guarantees.
    Michael Smith is an NFL reporter for ESPN. Information from ESPN.com's Bill Williamson and The Associated Press was used in this report

    Let the chaos begin!!! Whether he did or didn't do either of these, I would expect a couple of more accusations. Nothing good happens in a nightclub at 3am with these athletes!!!

    He has been a problem since draft day when Vermiel wanted a DLman if i remeber right. Then he was a problem running behind Priest. Then he was a problem through contract negotiations. as far as the assault charges? hes been a problem since before he was drafted. It dont look to me that hes going to get his crap together for anything! He got his contract and got injured and I think hes scared to run like he used to! Either way, I truely think we might be looking at a year long suspension at this point from the NFL. TBH? I wouldnt blame Goodell and would applaud him for it tbh. just my opinion though

    the only problem with him getting a year long suspension is that we are definantly stuck with him forever no team would even give up a 5th round during the offseason well maybe dallas or oakland but they already have rb's maybe tampa bay gruden dont mind a little baggage this is just further proof that herm has lost this team larry don't care tony want's out this is bad

    My point exactly....we are stuck with him! Why would Dallas want him? 1 they already have Barber and have enough suspension probs themselves. I think Oakland already have who they want but you never know with Al Davis. And Gruden? He will pass! Ive said it in another thread....we are either stuck with him and keep fining him (i added the fining) or the next coach or GM will just want to cut him or trade him for WHATEVER they can get outta him (even if its a 7th pick for him) at this point I , personally would take a 5th, 6th, and a 7th for him atm. Maybe even less since we dont know what the league is going to do. Since the trade deadline has passed though we are atleast stuck with him till the off-season.

    I am hoping that LJ has a conduct-clause in his contract or something to that effect. So, when he does get suspended or keeps getting in trouble, we can just get out of this D-bag's ridiculously high contract and send him packing to the unemployment line.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    Won't happen, a signing bonus is a signing bonus. The team will be hit with the remaining portion of his contract immediately after his release. They could do it this year, along with Nap Harris and spread it out over this year and next.

    They referenced Michael Vicks contract this morning on the radio as Atlanta tried to sue Vick for a portion of his signing bonus back and he was only required to pay back a very small portion. If he is in prison, I don't see how LJ compares.

    Problem with trading him is that the other team will have to take on his enormous contract or restructure. Do you think LJ will be willing to take a pay cut.

    Somebody should hire Kimbo Slice (or someone like that) to find LJ on the street and beat him into oblivion.
