[Kansas City.com] Chiefs running back Larry Johnson became the target of more legal attention Monday when a Lawrence woman sued him in Jackson County for spitting a drink on her.
Johnson currently is facing a simple-assault allegation for the Oct. 10 incident at a Country Club Plaza nightclub.
The woman, Ashley N. Stewart, told police that Johnson intentionally spit his drink in her face and threatened to kill her boyfriend.
Monday’s lawsuit does not seek specific monetary damages, only an amount that is “fair and reasonable to be determined by the jury.” Stewart’s lawyer, Kirra N. Jones, said her client’s injuries are real.
Johnson’s lawyer could not be reached Monday.
Johnson faces an additional simple-assault ticket for an alleged shoving incident that occurred in February at a different Kansas City nightclub.
