You might remember the judge granting Tank Johnson the right to travel to Miami with his Chicago Bears for the Super Bowl just a month ago. On Thursday, Johnson was sentenced to 120 days in jail for violating his probation in 2005, as police found six unregistered firearms in his home. The reason why he was even on probation was because a nightclub valet reported seeing Johnson with a handgun in his car.
My question is this – what is a 6’3″, 300 lb. beast doing with all these guns? Does he feel unsafe in The Windy City without having all of these around?
Maybe because his first name is Tank. It’s probably more surprising that he doesn’t carry several semi-automatics with him at all times.
But anyway, I always find it somewhat of a shock to see someone famous like a professional athlete get locked up. Wonder who the tank in jail is, if you know what I mean.
