The former Chiefs running back was arrested for domestic assault in Vegas on Friday morning.

Former NFL running back Larry Johnson was arrested in Las Vegas on Friday morning, according to A.J. Perez of FoxSports.com. According to Clark County Jail records, Johnson was arrested on suspicion of domestic battery and is accused of choking, with bail set at $15,000.

Johnson has been arrested four times since 2003 and has been sued twice for two separate alleged assaults in 2008 and 2011. All four arrests were due to violence against women.

The former running back spent the majority of his nine-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs, rushing for over 3,400 yards and 37 touchdowns in 2005 and 2006. Johnson was suspended by the team in 2009 for comments on Twitter and was waived once the suspension was over.

He would finish the season with the Cincinnati Bengals, playing with five games in Washington in 2010 and just one game with the MIami Dolphins in 2011.

Johnson is currently being held until he can see a judge.
