Life ain’t been no crystal stair for Larry
Johnson. The former NFL star is in trouble again.He allegedly attacked a man in a Miami club according to TMZ:
The police report reads like a scene out of a bad ’80s fight movie — where Johnson allegedly got pissed at another patron at the club inside the Delano Hotel for “taking drinks from his table.”
The alleged victim told police Johnson punched him in the face, sending him to the ground … and then “broke a bottle on the table and began swinging it toward him.”
According to the police report, the victim told cops Johnson then punched him in the face a few more times while he was on the ground.
The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening
The victim had this to say:
“He wailed on me for a good two minutes before security came over,” the man — who asked to keep his ID private — tells us.
“I couldn’t get back up on my feet – so it wasn’t even a fight. He just wailed on me – and used a tall broken vodka glass that got knocked over when I fell down [to attack me].”
The man continues … “I was able to cover my face – but I’m covered in cuts on the side of my neck, cut the back of my hand, and had to get 7 stitches for the gash on my arm.”
The man says he had NEVER met Johnson before the incident — despite reports to the contrary — and says he has no idea why LJ would attack him in the first place.
Johnson was released on $7,500 bond. I am no psychologist, but it is clear from this alleged attack and Johnson’s storied past, that he is in dire need of help. He hasn’t played in the NFL since 2011 and has been consistently in trouble for the past decade. It’s sad to see someone who had so much promise slowly self destruct. I don’t know what it’s going to take for Johnson to finally seek help, but he clearly is on the path leading to jail. I pray he seeks help.
Whut say you?
