Former NFL and USC wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson was arrested early Monday on suspicion of domestic abuse in Calabasas.
Authorities responded around 12:48 a.m. to reports of possible spousal abuse at his home, according to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies determined that Johnson and his ex-girlfriend “were involved in a domestic dispute,” officials said.
Johnson was arrested on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic battery. He was booked in jail but was released after posting $20,000 bail.
A call to SAFE Sports Management President Jerome Stanley, who negotiated Johnson’s contract for the NFL Countdown show on ESPN, was not immediately returned.
