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 ...

Slap your attorney on his butt, and a Broward County judge sends you straight from the courtroom to jail. California judges, are you taking notes?!

FLORIDA has some strange behaviour when it comes to their court system. It's like the 1950's.

Surprised that they didn't hang Ochocinco over such a horrible thing as touching another man's buttocks.

He obviously hasn't learn how to respect other people's space. And people laughed and that? I'm sorry, that's not a normal reaction to a Judge asking you if your lawyer did a good job. A simple yes, but no, this fool had slap someone in the butt...the lawyer most likely is a woman which is why he did it- and the female judge didn't find it funny.

I think its bias to have a woman, on a domestic violence case, when the man is the aggressor. The judge hated him before he even walked in.

I would say that the Judge ruled from her heart, not from the guidelines of her title.

Shes a hot head, just like Chad is.
