Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson was almost a free man, but he ruined it with one slap on the butt. Literally. Evelyn Lozada’s ex was in a Florida courtroom on June 10 for his probation violation hearing, and even though his attorney was very close to inking a plea deal for the disgraced athlete (that would have kept him out of jail) he screwed it all up.

TMZ reports that Ocho slapped his lawyer on the butt as he was securing the deal, which angered the judge enough to throw out the deal entirely and send Ocho to jail. Now Chad will now be spending 30 days in jail. He will also need to complete an additional 25 hours of community service along with extra therapy sessions.

And he better not pull any other stupid stunts over the next few months, because his probation has been extended to December 21, 2013.

Sure, the judge may have overreacted by putting Ocho in prison and throwing away the key, but maybe this will teach him an important lesson!

Do you think the judge was right to throw Chad in jail? Watch a video of the whole incident below and tell us your thoughts!
