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 ...

Sorry, but I have to call Bull**** on the judge on this one. Having worked for a private investigator here in Texas over a 12 year period, I know that judges are gawds in their own courts. But this is absurd!!!

About damn time a judge punishes a celeb for behaving badly in court and it wasn't a fine. A fine $10k fine to a celeb is like a $10 fine to the average person. It is no big deal but you throw away a deal w/no jail time for 30 days behind bars. I bet you other people (not just celebs) will be more respectful while in court. Now let's hope he actually does 30 days behind bars and isn't out in a couple of hours for overcrowding. THAT DRIVES ME NUTS. I say if someone is sentenced for under a year they should have to do the full time. Maybe it would stop a person from doing it again.

Not a fan of Chad's or his behavior, but really? Isn't that a little extreme?

Butt slapping is acceptable between sports people, in baseball and football. He probably didn't mean any harm. Seems like an overreaction by the judge.

He's sitting in court on probation for BATTERY of all things, about to have his probation revoked, and he thinks that's a great time to smack an officer of the court on the ass? Good for that judge.
