Terrell Owens visited Chad Johnson in county jail on Saturday afternoon and he tweeted about the experience of seeing his friend behind bars. As you have probably read, Johnson is serving a 30 day sentence for angering the judge presiding over his probation violation hearing by patting his attorney’s butt. (And in an interesting twist, the judge is legally blind.) Just visited the homie @ochocinco. He's in good spirits, he needs a haircut already tho. Lol. He sends his best regards to everyone. — Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) June 15, 2013 That was the 1st time ever visiting someone in jail & hopefully the last. That's not a place anyone wants to be regardless of how many days. — Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) June 15, 2013 I really didn't know what to expect but to see the homie locked up is a very humbling experience, to talk to him via vid conference let me — Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) June 15, 2013 know that's not where anyone wants to be. I know he's only in the county jail but to someone that has never been locked up…Jail is Jail! — Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) June 15, 2013 Considering the similarities in their public perception and career paths, it has to be very humbling for T.O. to see Johnson in jail knowing the roles could easily be reversed. Knowing the visceral response these two personalities elicit, people will find a way to criticize what T.O. is saying. I don’t care if he has only been in jail for a few days and will probably be out Monday, jail sucks and it has to suck seeing your friend locked up. Personally, I’m not as bad as Thomas DuBois from “The Boondocks” (the District Attorney who was afraid of going to jail because he was going to get raped) but I don’t want any part of that scene. Hopefully the judge’s ruling gets overturned and Johnson can go on with his life. I also hope this will be a humbling experience for both out of work wide receivers.
