09:05 AM ET 10.06 | Former NFL running back Larry Johnson was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada Friday morning for domestic violence ... TMZ has learned. According to Clark County Jail records, Johnson has been accused of strangling someone. It's unclear who the alleged victim is. Johnson -- who once signed a $45 million contract with the Kansas City Chiefs -- is being held until he can see a judge tomorrow morning. 32-year-old Johnson has been arrested 4 other times since 2003 -- each time he was accused of assaulting a woman. In 2008, he was sued for allegedly spitting on a woman in a nightclub. He paid $100k to settle that case.

Larry apparently you have issues with women apparently Momma Johnson didn't nurture you properly and you have nipple anxiety. I suggest they give him 6 months of jail time followed by 500 hours of listening to battered women peer groups. Women weren't put on this earth to hate they were put on to love

I guess some things don't stay in Vegas. Maybe Larry will use the old "the commercials lied to me" defense.

In Johnson's case, Vegas doesn't have much to do with his behavior.

He's an idiot no matter where he sleeps.

Shocking.

Sounds like he is trying to get back in to playing condition. Is a comeback in the picture?

October 6, 2012  01:21 PM ET
