BOSTON (CBS) – As if losing in the Super Bowl wasn’t painful enough, Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco had to appear in an Ohio courtroom just hours later.
Ochocinco pleaded guilty Monday morning to driving with a suspended license and a window tint violation, according to Cincinnati.com. The incident took place last July, but Ochocinco did not appear at his scheduled court date in December.
Ochocinco was fined just a few hundred dollars, which shouldn’t make a dent in his $6 million salary. However, Judge Russell Mock hit the receiver where it hurts.
“I guess I would have had to issue a larger fine if you would have won last night,” Mock said, according to the report.
Ochocinco made the news popular when he tweeted about the ordeal after leaving court.
