Former NFL running back Larry Johnson was arrested early Tuesday morning in Miami Beach following a fight in a hotel club … TMZ Sports has learned.
According to Miami Beach PD, Johnson was at a club at the Delano Hotel when he and another man (who cops called “an acquaintance” of Johnson’s) got into a fight.
The victim told police Johnson punched him in the face, sending him to the ground. The victim says Johnson then “broke a liquor bottle on the table sending shards of glass everywhere.”
According to Miami Beach PD, the victim told police Johnson then punched him in the face a few more times while he was on the ground.
The victim was taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries. According to police, at some point during Johnson’s arrest, he told the officers he used to play for the Miami Dolphins.
Johnson last played in the NFL in 2011, but made his mark mostly as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs and still holds the record for most rushing attempts in a season.
