Rucuss staffOctober 5, 2012

Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson has been locked up for domestic abuse again.

According to the Clark County Detention Center website, Johnson was arrested for battery/domestic violence by strangulation in Las Vegas. The incident allegedly occurred on the property of the Bellagio Hotel and Casino.

According to TMZ:

Johnson’s ex-girlfriend  told police LJ beat the crap out of her and strangled her  until she blacked out early Friday morning inside of a room at the Bellagio Hotel.
The GF told police … while Johnson was strangling her, she told  him, “If you are going to kill me squeeze harder and just do it.”

The GF says she then blacked out and lost consciousness. As for why he attacked her in the first place, the woman told police she and Johnson had been partying and drinking together when they went up to his room to “catch up.” But the GF claims LJ became enraged when they started talking about his daughter.

She claims LJ snapped and began to “beat her and throw her around the room” and eventually choked her out. According to the report, the GF told police she regained consciousness in a hotel hallway while dressed only in her underwear and a see-through blouse. The GF says she banged on doors until someone called for help.

Cops say the GF claims Johnson had attacked her multiple times in the past …  including a recent incident at the Wynn Hotel in Vegas. According to the report, security quickly made contact with Johnson and brought him to the security office.

One of the security guards told police …  while he was in the office, Johnson bragged about being released from charges “last time” … and then told one of the guards that he was going to “rip your f*cking vocal cords out.”

According to the report, officers say the GF  had multiple marks on her face and neck … and Johnson had a small cut on his  cheek and one on his lip.

Johnson, who was engaged to Empire Girls star Julissa Bermudez, is expected to remain in jail until going before a judge on Saturday morning. There is no word on the identity or condition of the victim in the case.

The 32-year old has had multiple arrests, which include four assaults related to women. His most notable one was a guilty plea in 2009 to two counts of disturbing the peace for incidents in a Kansas City nightclub. He shoved a woman and spit a drink at another. He was sentenced to two years probation and ordered to undergo anger management counseling.

Johnson was a first-round draft pick of the Chiefs in 2003. He was an All-Pro in 2005 and 2006 and still holds the all-time NFL record for carries in a season, with 416 in 2006.
