Former Chiefs' running back runs into trouble in Las Vegas.

Former Kansas City Chiefs running back Larry Johnson is in trouble with the law again. This time for domestic violence after his arrest on Friday night at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

According to reports, Johnson ran into trouble after a fight with a former girlfriend that turned physical which led to charges of battery and domestic violence by strangulation. The woman had injuries to her face and bruising no her neck while Johnson suffered scratches to his face.

The two-time Pro Bowl running back for the Chiefs has now been arrested five times related to assaulting women. Johnson was being held in Clark Count jail on $15,000 bond with a hearing set for Saturday morning.

Johnson's NFL career flamed out after starting with such promise with the Chiefs. At 32, Johnson hasn't played in the past two seasons and last scored a touchdown in 2008 with the Chiefs. He maintains career rushing totals of 6,223 yards and 55 touchdowns, but getting back on the field is the least of Johnson's problems after his latest arrest.
