Chad Johnson appeared in court on Monday to present a plea deal that would allow him to avoid jail time for a probation violation associated with his domestic violence case. He had already reached a deal with prosecutors that called for community service and counseling instead of jail, but things went south in a hurry with one of the most amazing court stories you will ever hear.
Broward County Circuit Judge Kathleen McHugh had reportedly accepted the deal, tacking on three additional months of probation because of meetings Johnson missed with his probation officer. McHugh then asked Johnson if he was satisfied with his lawyer Adam Swickle, and Johnson responded by patting Swickle on the butt. The gesture resulted in a laughing courtroom and a furious judge, and Johnson was quickly sentenced to 30 days in jail.
TMZ obtained a video of the butt slap and the exchange that followed:
