10:54 AM ET 10.07 | Former NFL star Larry Johnson tells TMZ he did NOT strangle the woman he was arrested for allegedly beating up yesterday ... and he says there is evidence to prove it. As TMZ first reported, the former Kansas City Chief was busted in Las Vegas early Friday morning after an argument with a woman allegedly turned violent. The woman claims Johnson strangled her until she nearly blacked out. But Johnson claims the story is BS. He tells TMZ the woman -- who he says was just an old acquaintance -- would not leave his hotel room after a night of partying at Bank Nightclub. Johnson says the woman began to kick and slap him as he tried to remove her. Johnson says once he got her outside the room, she began to try and kick the door down -- which Johnson feels should have been caught on surveillance cameras, proving she was never near unconsciousness.

So he admits that he got physical with her, but that he didn't choke her out. Way to clear it all up, Larry!

Handling the physco gash is tricky. The cops will show up with the Knight in Shinning Armour attitude and the truth doesn't matter. The more she plays it up the worse it will get. Sometimes it's best just to take a powder and usually that will give them time to find out how unstable she really is.

Yeah I just put her in a submission hold the fact she didn't say uncle was what made her pass out

She wanted her money, that's why she was kicking the door down!

There's a big difference between what he feels should be on the security tapes and what actually is on the security tapes...
