Appearances can be deceiving, and it's way too soon to tell if he's actually been scared straight, but from the looks of it, it seems like Chad Johnson is trying to clean off his image!
First, of course, he wanted to prove to the world that he's still got it physically — and took on a treadmill at 24mph! It's pretty incredible, and you can watch it HERE!
But being in tip-top shape only gets you so far, because as far as we know he was in pretty good shape when he head-butted his wife, Evelyn Lozada, and still in great shape when he missed a probation meeting and got sent to prison.
That's why he's posing with a group of adorable kiddos — including his daughter! He was actually chaperoning a trip to the movies with his daughter and all of her friends. We gotta be honest, that's a sweet thing to do!
We aren't about to be fooled yet, though! Maybe a few years of this shizz and we'll be ready to trust again!
There's nothing like giving a teammate a little tap on the tush to tell them they've done a good job!
But when Chad Johnson got a little too frisky with his lawyer in court, it ended up costing him BIG time!!
As we previously mentioned, the former footballer was in court yesterday following up on domestic violence arrest from last year, and apparently he was VERY close to striking up a plea deal that would have let him walk free. But that quickly changed when Chad decided to congratulate his lawyer on a job well done with a little pat on the booty!
Ch-ch-check out the spank heard ’round the world (above)!
Chad drew a light chuckle from the crowd with his actions, but his celebration may have come a little to soon as the judge was NOT laughing!
Not only did she scold him for not taking things seriously, but she ended up throwing out the plea deal and sentenced him to 30 days in jail! YIKES!!!
Like we said, a spanking is a great way to congratulate a fellow athlete, but unfortunately for Mr. Ochocinco he was in a courthouse and NOT a football field!
