Former NFL star and ex-girlfriend allegedly involved in dispute.
Keyshawn Johnson was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery early Monday morning in Calabasas, California, TMZ is reporting. The former NFL star wide receiver already reportedly posted bail, set at $20,000, and is now out.
“When deputies arrived, it was determined that the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement to CBS.
Police told TMZ that the former NFL star wide receiver was involved in an argument with his ex-girlfriend when the situation allegedly escalated into being physical. Sources told TMZ that Johnson smashed the woman’s phone, opening a gash on her hand. Sources also add that the former couple was arguing about marriage.
Johnson has been an ESPN football analyst since 2007.
