Sheriff's deputies responded to a Calabasas, Calif., residence early Monday morning regarding a possible spousal assault call for service, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
Per authorities, when deputies arrived at the scene, Johnson and his ex-girlfriend appeared to be "involved in a domestic dispute." According to the LASD, the "ensuing investigation" resulted in Johnson's arrest for misdemeanor domestic battery.
The 41-year-old former Dancing With the Stars competitor was booked at Malibu/Los Hills Sheriff's Station and bail was set at $20,000. He posted bond and was released from custody at around 9:15 a.m.
Johnson currently appears as an analyst on ESPN's Sunday Morning Countdown. When NBC Sports' Professional Football Talk blog asked for comment, an ESPN spokesman said, "We are aware and are looking into it."
A rep for the retired football player has not yet returned a request for comment.
Fortunately, Johnson no longer needs to worry about running into Biebs at the corner store: Kourtney Kardashian bought the athlete's Calabasas home in January, and Khloé Kardashian purchased Bieber's home in March.
