Johnson Charged With Simple Assault
Kansas City Chiefs tailback Larry Johnson reportedly has been charged with simple assault for an incident at a nightclub earlier this month in which he is accused of spitting a drink at a woman's face.
A police spokesman told the Associated Press that Johnson was charged today and turned himself in, then was released after posting a $500 bond.
A court date was set for Dec. 4, the Kansas City Star reported.
The incident, in which Johnson also was accused of threatening to kill the woman's boyfriend, reportedly occurred Oct. 10.
Johnson already was facing a December court date on a simple assault charge stemming from a separate nightclub incident in February in which he allegedly pushed a woman's head with an open hand.
Johnson has been on the Chiefs' inactive list in each of their past two games, the first time for reportedly being late to meetings and other team functions.
He also faces possible disciplinary action by the NFL under its personal conduct policy. He reportedly is scheduled to meet Tuesday in New York with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Johnson issued a public apology last week for his off-field problems.
