According to the police report, Johnson was arrested near the Level night club around 3:45am when an officer attempted to issue a citation to Johnson because a limo he’d hired was obstructing traffic.
Johnson said what are probably the words least likely thing to get you out of a ticket when he informed the cop, “You ain’t the only one with a Glock. If it wasn’t for your gun and your badge, I’d kick your ass.” – Chicagoist (February 13th, 2006)

CHICAGO — Chicago Bears nose tackle Tank Johnson, already facing weapons charges after a raid on his home, is not responsible for the deadly shooting of his friend inside a nightclub, the player’s lawyer said Saturday. – ESPN.com (December 16th, 2006)

Arrested three times in 18 months, Johnson has pleaded not guilty to the most recent charges. The previous arrests involved a scuffle with a police officer, in which the charges were dropped, and a misdemeanor weapons charge….

…Cook County Judge John Moran granted a defense request Tuesday to allow Johnson to leave the state as he awaits trial on gun possession charges. The Bears will play the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl in Miami on Feb. 4. – CBS Sports (January 23rd, 2007)

Am I the only one who has a problem with this?
