TMZ — Chad Johnson pissed off a judge in South Florida, and now there’s a warrant out for his arrest … TMZ Sports has learned.
The warrant was issued about a month ago … when Chad skipped his arraignment in Pembroke Pines, FL for driving on a suspended license. The suspended Montreal Alouettes receiver was cited back in May for the offense.
It sounds bad, but truth is … Chad can clear up the warrant by getting his ass to court STAT, and paying a $2,000 bond. He’ll still have to deal with the suspended license though.
UPDATE: Chad’s on it. He says he’s dispatched his lawyer to pay the $2k bond, so he doesn’t get locked up.
From what I can decipher from Chad Johnson‘s Twitter account — and believe me, I’ve never been able to make much sense of it; I finally stopped following him because absent a Rosetta stone I was never going to be able to make heads or tails of his nonsense — he seems to be suggesting his license was suspended for unpaid tolls. Or something. I can’t be sure. But what I do know is that regardless of the underlying cause of his problems, it’s good to see his life skills haven’t improved at all. Then again, what would we expect from a married man who leaves the sales receipt from buying a box of condoms in the trunk of his car?
What I am surprised by is that he’s getting his lawyer to address the problem. As far as I’m concerned, he could stay on the lam and the authorities would never catch up to him. They could conduct a hard-target search of every gas station, residence, warehouse, farmhouse, henhouse, outhouse and doghouse in that area and still never catch him. The way I look at it, if you’re an NFL wide receiver and Tom Brady can’t find you, no one can.
