    Chad Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, didn't fare so well Monday in a Fort Lauderdale, Fla., courtroom.

    Per the Orlando Sentinel, the ex-NFL star was sentenced to 30 days in jail (with credit for time served) after violating probation in regard to his domestic violence case against his now ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada.

    Betty Yu, a local NBC reporter present in the courtroom, tweeted that Johnson irritated the judge by "patting lawyer on [the] backside."

    Judge Kathleen McHugh reportedly told Johnson, "I don't know that you're taking this whole thing seriously…I'm not going to accept these plea negotiations. This isn't a joke."

    Johnson apologized, clarifying he "had no intent to make this a joke, because my life is in shambles right now."

    Per the Orlando Sentinel, Johnson's probation was extended from Sept. 21 to Dec. 21; he was also ordered to undergo two counseling sessions per week and perform 25 hours of community service.

    After Judge McHugh's decision, Johnson was handcuffed and taken into custody.
