Johnson involved in incident with wife

Eddie Johnson has more to worry about than just finding a new club.

Johnson was involved in an incident earlier this week after his wife, Janelle, rammed her car into his rental after seeing him at a Florida hotel with another woman, according to a deputy's report

Janelle was charged with felony criminal mischief and felony child abuse because the couple's five-year-old daughter was in her car at the time of the incident, according to the report.

Eddie Johnson, who has not publicly commented on the incident, is currently under contract with Fulham but is in search of a new club for the upcoming season.

What do you think of the reported incident? Do you see this affecting any potential deal for Johnson?

    See, I find the humor in this. I guess I have a thick enough skin to not label anonymous posters on the internet a racist.

    Well, most smart married guys don’t go to hotels with other women. Even if it was in innocence, still not a good idea. But what his wife did was just crazy. If you are mad, talk to him, don’t purposely wreck cars with children in them.

    First of all I did say EJ’s wife was wrong to risk harming her own child…read before posting.

    I should have included in my post “if he was actually planning on getting it on with this other woman.”

    History has shown that nothing good ever comes from a married man taking another woman to a hotel.

    a) he was helping his sister, cousin, or friend get settled in…WITHOUT TELLING HIS WIFE

    b) he was dining at this hotel or wanted to use their exquisite swimming pool.

    iirc, Eddie got her knocked up and then later on got married, for the kid or some such. It’s his life, nothing to do with soccer, blah blah blah. But the chaos of his rags-to-riches story has clearly impacted his play on the field.

    It is no surprise to me that this man-child appears to not only lack intestinal fortitude in his futbol, but also his marriage.

    Sad to me that so many seem to think it’s funny…EJ’s pathetic lack of maturity should be lesson for all.

    God gives talent but individuals have to do the work to shape it into achievement…on the field and in a marriage.

    I think this is the kind of thing that is none of anyone who wasn’t involved’s business. Best of luck to him working things out with his kid and maybe his wife, and may the judge think straight during the trial.
