I don’t know what it is about Chad Johnson, but any story involving him is always littered with strange tidbits. After Johnson was thrown jail for the butt slapped heard around the world, many people started to ask about the judge who overreacted to the slap.
The judge’s name is Katie McHugh and according to Gossip Extra it would have been nearly impossible for her to see the butt slap because she is legally blind.
Rookie judge Katie McHugh, who won her seat in November in an upset win over ethically-challenged former County Commish Ilene Lieberman, called herself “legally blind” during campaign appearances.
McHugh, 44, said she suffers from Stargardt’s Disease, a rare genetic condition.
And her handicap has made it impossible for her to obtain a driver’s license.
Yet, on Monday morning, McHugh told Johnson: “I just saw you slap your attorney on the backside!”
Gossip Extra asked McHugh how she could have seen Johnson if she is nearly blind but she has yet to comment.
What really happened was that she heard the laughter and pieced together what happened. Chad’s attorneys will be back in court tomorrow to try to get him out of jail.
