Chad Johnson Update

From Florida domestic violence issues to child support, Chad Johnson can't seem to catch a break

Former NFL star Chad Johnson made headlines last week when a warrant was issued for his arrest for alleged violations of the terms of his probation stemming from his domestic violence case with his former wife. This week he's in the news again because he's asking a judge to lower his child support payments.

Mr. Johnson reportedly filed documents with a family court (presumably outside of Florida) asking a judge to lower his $5,420 per month child support payment because he claims he can no longer afford it. Apparently, Mr. Johnson agreed to pay this amount over a year ago when he was a member of an NFL team making a substantial amount of money that included endorsement deals. After his infamous arrest for head butting his former wife, Mr. Johnson lost those endorsement deals and was released from the Miami Dolphins. In addition to being unemployed, Mr. Johnson is claiming that due to the late stage of his career, he will certainly never earn the amount of money he once earned.

I feel bad for the guy. His antics used to bother me but he always seemed like he was a decent guy. I hope he gets back on the right path.
