[Kansas City.com] Chiefs running back Larry Johnson pleaded guilty this afternoon to two counts of disturbing the peace in connection with separate incidents involving women at Kansas City night clubs last year.
A Kansas City Municipal Court judge sentenced Johnson to two years of probation but suspended imposition of the sentence. If Johnson completes probation without further incidents, the guilty plea will be removed from his public record.
In entering his plea, Johnson admitted the city had enough evidence to convict him. Therefore, city prosecutors did not have to call witnesses or present other evidence.
The charges stemmed from two incidents last year.
In the first on Feb. 24, 2008, a 26-year-old woman alleged that Johnson shoved her on the side of the head inside a club in the 3800 block of Main Street.
The second incident allegedly occurred in October at Club Blonde in the 100 block of Ward Parkway. A 24-year-old woman alleged that Johnson intentionally spit a drink in her face and made a threat against her boyfriend.
City Prosecutor Beth Murano said that while on probation Johnson cannot consume alcohol or be present in any Kansas City bars or nightclubs after 9 p.m.
He must also complete anger control counseling, not disturb the peace of the victims in the two cases and perform 40 hours of community service with the Police Athletic League.
Johnson previously faced charges in two incidents from 2003 and 2005.
