We’ve been reporting for most of the day on the dilemma that got Chad Johnson thrown in jail this morning. As we reported, Johnson was kicked out of court for slapping his attorney’s ass.
Now according to BlackSportsOnline, the judge who was presiding over Johnson’s case, Katie McHugh, could be in hot water according to reports.
Rookie judge Katie McHugh, who won her seat in November in an upset win over ethically-challenged former County Commish Ilene Lieberman, called herself “legally blind” during campaign appearances.
McHugh, 44, said she suffers from Stargardt’s Disease, a rare genetic condition.
And her handicap has made it impossible for her to obtain a driver’s license.
Yet, on Monday morning, McHugh told Johnson: “I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside!”
Gossip Extra asked McHugh how she could have seen Johnson if she is nearly blind but she has yet to comment.
It took Judge McHugh a second to figure out what was going on in her court, so we now know why there was a pause in her reaction.
Hopefully this bit of information will get Johnson released.
