It’s been a crazy Friday already.
Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson likely had the craziest start to his morning that he won’t soon ever forget. The former NFL wide receiver took to Twitter and revealed that he witnessed the high-profile FBI arrest of Roger Stone, who is a longtime ally of Donald Trump and, apparently, is Ochocinco’s neighbor.
“FBI arrested my neighbor Roger before my morning jog,” he wrote at about 8:31 a.m. “I’ve only seen shit like that in movies, crazy to start to my Friday.”
Stone was arrested following an indictment by special counsel Robert Mueller.
According to the Justice Department, the indictment, which was unsealed upon arrest, contains seven counts: one count of obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements and one count of witness tampering.
Stone is scheduled to appear in court in Florida later Friday. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders commented on Stone’s arrest, saying “This has nothing to do with the president. Has nothing to do with the White House.”
The 41-year-old Johnson last played in the league for the New England Patriots and somewhere along the line he ended up living near Stone, the infamous political figure.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
