Third time arrested for assaulting a woman? That's a straight-up punk who shouldn't be allowed to put on an NFL jersey again. Can't believe Herm Edwards would allow a guy like this to play on his team:
Kansas City running back Larry Johnson has been charged with assault, his third such brush with the law since he joined the Chiefs.
Johnson, 28, was charged with a similar assault for allegedly pushing a woman at a Kansas City nightclub on February 24.
The National Football League player is scheduled to appear in court on December 3 and faces a maximum jail term of six months and a 500-dollar fine.
The 26-year-old complainant accused Johnson of pushing the left side of her head with an open hand and saying "don't touch me" as he passed them in a crowd.
Johnson faced a similar situation in 2005 when a woman accused him of pushing her to the ground at a Kansas City bar. That charge was dropped when the woman failed to appear in court.
In 2003, Johnson agreed to a domestic violence diversion program after he was charged with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery for allegedly waving a gun during a dispute with a former girlfriend.
