SKOKIE, Ill. -- Chicago Bears defensive lineman Tank Johnson was sentenced Thursday to four months in jail for violating probation in a 2005 gun case.

Johnson immediately was taken into custody. He could have been sentenced to up to a year behind bars.

Johnson, who pleaded guilty to violating his probation, also must pay a $2,500 fine.

Johnson was arrested on misdemeanor weapons charges Dec. 14 after police raided his home in the Lake County town of Gurnee, about 40 miles northwest of Chicago, and found six unregistered firearms.

Good. I was disgusted that he was allowd to play in the superbowl. I mean, anyone else in the world under house arrest would have had to miss work. But not a football player.

Actually house arrest allows you to travel to and from work. Besides it is not like everyone in the world did not know where he was at all times.
