Another Canadian in legal trouble in Orlando: Will Johnson arrested on domestic-violence charge


For the second time this season, a Canadian national-teamer playing for Orlando City has been arrested.

On Wednesday, just after 2:30 a.m. local time, Will Johnson was booked into the Orange County jail. He was charged with battery (domestic violence), according to records from the Orange County Jail.

Johnson was sent to cell BRCIA 10, which must be awfully close to cell BRCIA 14, which is where Canadian national-team forward Cyle Larin spent a few hours in June after he was charged with impaired driving.

Needless to say, with a domestic violence charge, Johnson will be facing discipline from MLS and possibly Canada Soccer.

The league released the following statement:

Orlando City SC midfielder Will Johnson was arrested Wednesday and charged with misdemeanor battery in connection with an alleged domestic incident. Johnson has been suspended pending investigations by MLS and the Orlando Police Department. Major League Soccer will remain in close communication with Orlando City SC, local law enforcement, and the MLS Players Union during this investigation.

MLS will not have further comment on this matter until the conclusion of the League’s investigation.

Johnson is currently leading all Canadians in MLS when it comes to minutes played. He signed with Orlando after spending the 2016 season with Toronto FC, where he scored the Canadian Championship-winning goal while breaking his leg at the same time.

Johnson has 43 national-team caps.
