It's all fun and games ... until you go to jail. Wife-beater and former NFL player Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson was arrested last month for violating his parole appeared in a Florida courtroom this morning prepared to walk out a free man, but that was not meant to be. His attorney and the prosecutor worked behind the scene on a plea deal that call for three additional months of probation, community service and counseling instead of jail, but every thing changed when Chad playfully slapped his male attorney on the butt -- as football players routinely do to each other on the field. The courtroom erupted in laughter and Judge Kathleen McHugh immediately rejected the plea and sentenced Chad to 30 days in jail instead. "I don't know that you're taking this whole thing seriously. I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside. Is there something funny about this?" McHugh said, slapping the plea deal document down on her desk. "The whole courtroom was laughing. I'm not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn't a joke." Then he tried to apologize. Well, he apologized. A lot. "This is your courtroom. I have no intent to make this a joke. It's not funny," Chad told the judge "My life is in a shambles right now and I try my best to laugh and keep a smile on my face." But the judge, who could have given the 35-year-old up to a year in jail, was not moved. "It's not the first time he's behaved that way in my courtroom," she said. Chad then was handcuffed and hauled away to jail. That'll learn him.
