His choice of wearing denim was more offensive than the butt slap. Judge needs to take a vacation and loosen up a bit, what a bitch.
So let me get this straight. Chad Johnson headbutts his wife. Rather than go to jail after that he gets probation instead. All he has to really do is go see his probation officer every month. He doesn't go to report to his P.O. for THREE months. Then he goes back to court to get another slap on the wrist (he was going to get community service and counseling instead of jail time). Then to show his lawyer that he appreciates him for keeping him out of jail (again), he makes a mockery out of the courtroom by treating it like a locker room after a game. But the judge is the one who was wrong for putting him in jail. I mean who does she think she is? A judge or something?
If the average Joe had assaulted his wife, blew off his probation officer for three months and made a mockery out of a courtroom, you guys would not be cutting him the same amount of slack you're giving Chad Johnson. No he clearly by not even going to see his probation officer wasn't treating this situation (one he created) seriously. He got what he deserved. The average guy wouldn't have even got the breaks he was getting.
Thank you, Denicos.
News flash: rich people get special treatment.
His lawyer is speaking out on his behalf and has filed a motion to reduce the sentence.
Former NFL player Chad Johnson should not have to do time for his playful tap on his lawyer's backside during a court hearing in Florida on Monday, the attorney says in a motion seeking a reduction of the jail term that resulted.

You would be surprised at what many "Average Joes" have to do to actually get a documented probation violation.
If this was the only thing the defendant did to break decorum, it's ridiculous. I get he was wearing denim, but he seemed to be totally respectful other than the butt slap. Maybe he did something else during the proceedings. Also to everyone saying he was getting a slap on the wrist ... Most people get slaps on the wrist even if they aren't rich.
There was an article in a local paper recently with numbers: something like 6,000 people on probation/parole in New Hampshire are being supervised by a total of 64 probation/parole officers. With an average of 600 people per officer's caseload, you're damned right there has to be something extraordinary to warrant the PPO's filing of a violation.
So apparently Ocho Cinco served 7 days in jail. He got another reaming from the judge today before she extended his probation by a month and ordered him released.
Chad Johnson will be a free man TODAY ... because the judge who sent his ass to jail has agreed to release the former NFL star, 1 week after the infamous
