Chiefs running back Larry Johnson addressed the media yesterday to apologize for his behavior following two recent accusations of assault on women in night clubs. Police and the NFL are investigating a report that Johnson allegedly spat several times on a woman at a Kansas City nightclub.
Head coach Herm Edwards said that Johnson will be benched, not suspended for this Sunday’s game against the Jets. The NFL is conducting it’s own investigation into the allegations toward Johnson who has now had four incidents with assaults on women in five years.
At his press conference, Johnson said. "I want to start off saying I apologize to the Hunt family, my family, first and foremost, the fans, teammates, coaches and players. This is the first time in my life I actually had to stand up, I mean actually woke up and kind of be disgusted with myself and disgusted as far as the way my life and my career is heading right now."
