On and off the football field, Keyshawn Johnson was known for being a flamboyant and outgoing personality. Early Monday morning, he was arrested for alleged domestic abuse against his ex-girl friend, whom he had dated for seven years.
Los Angeles county sheriff’s deputies showed up at Johnson’s home in Calabasas at 12:48am after receiving a phone call about a possible domestic altercation.
“When deputies arrived, it was determined that the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute,” the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department told CBS Los Angeles.
Allegedly, he smashed her cell phone against her hand, causing a cut to open. Johnson posted bail (to the tune of $20,000) and was released around 9am Monday. Making things even more intriguing the duo were spotted shopping for a replacement cell phone at an AT & T store later after he was released from jail.
Johnson played for the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys, and Carolina Panthers from 1996-2006 (814 career receptions for 10,571 yards, with 64 touchdowns) and immediately went to work in the studio for ESPN after retiring.
He starred at the University of Southern California from 1994-1995 where he was a standout and became the #1 overall pick by the NY Jets in the 1996 NFL draft.
