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 ...

ummm?!    

Too bad Lindsay Lohan's cases haven't been presented before this judge. I have no doubt she would have whipped Lohan's ass into shape years ago!

I hope he enjoys living in a cement cage for 30 days. What an idiot. I wish all the celebs were treated like this in court. Maybe they would learn a lesson. I am hoping that punk kid Justin spends some time in jail too.

this is about as retarded as a 5 year old getting suspended for playing cops and robbers at school. just sounds like the judge has a God complex and wants to stick it to a jock.

Definitely a stupid thing to do in a court room. It was also disrespectful to both the lawyer and the judge. But 30 days in jail for something that was just tacky.....I don't know. I would rather lock up a pedophile, rapist, or violent offender. An ass-slapping is tacky, but not necessarily criminal.

Judge must not have felt the comradery of a locker room slap. Ugly bitch probably hasn't ever been patted on the ass before. Has nothing to do with race. Like those racist race card players want to say. It's just she's a prudish bitch.
