Chiefs RB Johnson sentenced to two years’ probation

The Kansas City Star reports that Chiefs RB Larry Johnson pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of disturbing the peace. Both incidents occurred more than a year ago and involved two different women inside Kansas City nightclubs.

Johnson was sentenced to two years of probation by a Kansas City Municipal Court judge and that the guilty plea will be removed from his public record if he avoids further incidents during probation, the newspaper says:

    City Prosecutor Beth Murano said that while on probation Johnson cannot consume alcohol or be present in any Kansas City bars or nightclubs after 9 p.m. He must also complete anger control counseling, not disturb the peace of the victims in the two cases and perform 40 hours of community service with the Police Athletic League.

The six-year NFL veteran has faced charges in the past. In 2003, aggravated assault and misdemeanor battery charges were dropped after he completed a domestic violence diversion program, and in 2005,  misdemeanor assault charges in connection in another nightclub incident were dropped.
