Is it ILLEGAL to slap your attorneys butt in court? I mean it's creepy, but against the law? Why?

An NFL player got 30 days in prison for it haha! Can you imagine? I don't get it, what's the difference between that and a hug? I mean besides the creep factor.

there may not be any law against it but it is in contempt of the court (disrespectful) . the judge may have been unduly harsh on giving him jail time. she could have put him on probation but that is her prerogative.

I guess he was treating the whole thing as a joke. I can understand that now.

He got the 30 days because the Judge interpreted it as a joking act. This implied that rather than taking the court seriously, the player just considered it all a joke.

I would imagine the charge was "contempt of court"

They hug all the time!

Maybe the lawyer thought it was too personal.
Report as
No, he tried defending it. The story was a case of him head butting his gf. He just keeps mocking the courts and not doing what he's supposed to. I hadn't heard the whole story yet.
I'm just a bit upset that he gets the 30 days AFTER doing that, rather than abuse.

I m not into foot ball , have no idea who's , who , but was on vacation in Bahamas a few years back , and laying out I kept thinking wow this hotel is crowded , with the biggest guys I've ever seen , lol , the guy laying out next to me , started talking and turned out he played for the nfl , and explained they were all between the seasons , for what ever reason I did notice that they do tend to have a a lot of friendly male contact with each other , as guys , not in the homosexual way just , close male bonding I guess , maybe it's a guy thing

Haha! Good one. The lawyer was male.

awwwww fun
we could exchange some stories.. and love LOVE the pool
in fact i just decided that im going to look to search and kill the top 5 swim up bars in the world (i dont drink but) AND the top five rail experiences (orient exp, rocky mtn. blue train, etc)..
the sports scene is my life and like all other venues.. it takes all kinds
i now work with guys when they get past the fun and $$.. they get sent to me when they "break" and get to the end of themselves
but i sure like those moments.. creating stories.. and living life :).. sounds like you do too ...
Report as
I'm being casual , but yeah your right , life's about moments , funny thou , can probably sit for hours and talk about where's the best steak , when I had the best bottle of wine , best shopping , best beach , who , what and when and why ect .. Yes fun , and very fortunate , but the things , I love the most is the unexpected , a delayed flight , when your stuck , and find yourself talking to a stranger and actually enjoying it , a homeless man who doesn't want money , he wants you to take him to eat , a little girl who wants a dress and mom has no money , ( mexico) so you buy the dress and your on the beach and this beautiful kid walks up , with her mom , all clean up to show you , I can go forever about the unexpected people , that walk into your life and really leave a memory ,

Hi trinity it was Chad Johnson. He changed his name to Ocho Cinco which means 85. Anyway I don't think he meant disrespect to the judge. The observers in the court got him in trouble cause they were laughing so the judge thought he was making a mockery of the court. I thought the judge was harsh. Would a high five of been better? How about a fist bump? It's part of sports including the butt slap do he probably didn't think nothing of it

Hi Monte!! I don't think he meant to dis the judge either. But he sounds like a real A..not nice person. He was there for head butting (butt again) his gf in the stomach hard. That's what I got from the news today. I think he should have gotten 30 days for that myself! Maybe when the court laughed it bothered the judge that THEY weren't bothered by this guy. I don't know. There's much more going on in the world I'm interested in anyway. And I do agree with you, but realize there's a bit more to it.
Report as
Lol. Did you say dis? I would of never thought I'd hear that word from you Trinity. I agree he is a butthead and should get what's coming to him. He's not Chad Ocho Cinco anymore its Chad Ocho Stink-o

Hahaha!! Oh thank you dear Monte for making my day. Being a Christian means being changed haha! I was not the Christian you hear here my whole life. Man, I saw AC DC twice! Once in the mosh pit! I don't usually say dis but hey, if there's a short way to type and get my point across and not nasty I'll take it!
