Police responded to a call from Johnson's home around 12:30 a.m. PT regarding a possible assault.
“When deputies arrived, it was determined that the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute,” the LASD said.
Johnson, 41, posted $20,000 bond at 9:15 a.m. and was released. Johnson played 11 NFL seasons — four with the Jets, four with the Buccaneers, two in Dallas and one with the Panthers.
He has been an ESPN analyst since 2007. A spokesperson for ESPN told Pro Football Talk that the company is aware of Johnson's arrest and "looking into it."
TMZ is reporting that Johnson smashed his ex-girlfriend's phone, gashing her hand. SI WIRE: Donald Trump serious about buying Bills, keeping them in Buffalo
