Kansas City Chief’s running back Larry Johnson has reportedly been charged with simple assault for allegedly spitting his drink in a woman's face during an altercation at a nightclub on October 10. Johnson issued an apology last week for his actions and was benched for a second consecutive week. Johnson has already faced three charges for assaulting a woman since he came to the Chiefs. In 2003 Johnson was accused of aggravated assault and misdemeanor domestic battery for waving a gun at his ex-girlfriend, but the charges were dropped when he entered a domestic- violence program. In 2005, Johnson was accused of pushing a woman to the ground at another KC nightspot, but the charges were later dropped. The latest incident occurred less than a week after word surfaced that Johnson was facing a simple assault charge for pushing a woman at a Kansas City nightclub. Johnson faces a December court date in that case, which took place February 24 of this year.
