In what seems like a bizarre twist on “Scared Straight,” Terrell Owens tweeted about visiting fellow former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson in jail on Saturday. Johnson is currently residing in Broward County jail, serving a 30-day sentence for a probation violation revolving around an altercation involving his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada. Johnson was originally going to get off without a jail term, but after patting his attorney on the backside during a court hearing, a judge basically gave him the jail stint for insubordination. As of Sunday, Johnson still has 24 days to go on his sentence, but at least Owens stopped by to say hello. Who knows what they talked about, but the pair are both former star wide receivers in the NFL who are still not yet retired, and both hoping for (very unlikely) comebacks. The overlooked story in all of this? The deplorable conditions for inmates’ hair while in custody. Check out Owens’ tweets about his visit with Johnson below. 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
