DWTS Season 17’s Keyshawn Johnson Arrested on Domestic Battery Charge
All is not so quiet once again in Calabasas, but this time it’s Justin Bieber’s former neighbor, Keyshawn Johnson, who’s in trouble with local authorities.
The former NFL star, who appeared during Season 17 of Dancing With the Stars, has been booked and released on $20,000 bond on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. According to E! News, Calabasas sheriff deputies responded to a spousal assault call early April 21, with authorities reporting Keyshawn and his ex-girlfriend appeared to be “involved in a domestic dispute” when officers arrived on the scene.
Recently, the 41-year-old athlete found himself on the other side of a disturbance complaint when he reported his former neighbor, Justin Bieber, for reckless driving within the (usually) quiet gated community. The pop star has since moved out of the ritzy neighborhood, having sold his home to reality star Khloe Kardashian, while Keyshawn sold his own place a few doors down to Khloe’s sister, Kourtney.
There’s no word yet on what this battery charge will mean for Keyshawn’s future with ESPN, where he currently appears as an analyst on Sunday Morning Countdown. In a statement given to NBC Sports, a spokesperson for the network said neutrally, “We are aware and are looking into it.”
