Chiefs running back Larry Johnson was suspended by the team for Sunday’s game for violating unspecified team rules. And it sounds like team rules may include things like “Don’t assault women,” as a police report from his October 10th night club altercation claims that Johnson spit in a woman’s face and threatened to kill her boyfriend, the fourth time in five years he’s been accused of assaulting a woman. This time, it was 24-year-old Ashley Stewart.
Johnson got close to Stewart while swinging his arms belligerently, then said, “All I wanted [to] tell you is I’m going to kill your boyfriend,” the report said. Johnson kept talking to Stewart and spit the drink in her face after she backed away, the report said.
Stewart told police that Johnson’s bodyguards then tackled her and that bouncers from the club escorted her outside. Johnson tried to spit on her three more times while walking to his car after the club manager asked him to leave, the report said.
You can read the full police report at Arrowhead Pride, but keep in mind that it only contains whatever lies Stewart told the police; lies that were confirmed by lying eyewitnesses. I want to hear Johnson’s side of the story before I make up my mind. Maybe he didn’t spit on her at all. Or maybe she was on fire, and that’s why he was spitting. Let’s all pause and accept the possibility that Larry Johnson is a hero, okay?
