Chad Johnson was just arrested and placed in handcuffs inside a Florida courtroom ... after the judge in his probation violation hearing ordered the ex-NFL star to spend 30 days in jail.

The move comes after Johnson pissed off the Broward County judge by slapping his male lawyer's butt during the hearing.

As we previously reported, Johnson's attorney was thiiiis close to sealing a deal that would have kept Johnson OUT of jail for violating his probation earlier this year.

But the butt slap enraged the judge ... and she took the deal off the table.

Now, Johnson's punishment is much harsher than what was originally proposed -- and he has been ordered to spend 30 days in jail.

His probation was also extended until December 21, 2013 ... and he must complete an additional 25 hours of community service along with extra therapy sessions.

Story developing ...

Courtrooms aren't the place to act like an ass. Even crazy Jodi Arias figured that out.

Bull****! You all who agree with this are idiots...and I'm not even a football fan! You all agree with this because of envy/jealousy ... and because you gain pleasure in seeing someone else's hard times! This is an OBVIOUS abuse of power! And forums like these are a PRIME example of why people are horrible -- both in general, and to each other. Crabs in a bucket!

No fan of this guy but, Lindsay could murder her lawyer in court and the judge would give her an ankle bracelet and send her on her way, after apologizing for the inconvenience. Can't help but feel race plays a role in how harsh the judges are.

This must be why Lindsay Loahn doesn't go to Florida - her ass would end up in jail for violating probation unlike in Cali where she skates every time.

Really...REALLY?? Over-reaction! Now if he had slapped the judge's a$$, that would have been something else entirely! 30 days? Give me a break!
