KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been charged with simple assault for spitting his drink in a woman's face.
Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp said Johnson was charged Monday and turned himself in, later being released after posting a $500 bond.
Snapp said the incident occurred on Oct. 10 at a Kansas City nightclub. The 24-year-old victim reported that Johnson threatened to kill her boyfriend before spitting his drink in her face.
After leaving the bar, she said Johnson tried to spit on her again as he was escorted out.
It is the fourth time in five years that Johnson has been accused of assaulting a woman, and he faces a suspension for violating league rules.
