Ex-NFL Star Chris Johnson Accused Of Funding Murder-For-Hire Shootings That Killed 2 Men

Former Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson is accused in new court documents of paying and providing material support to an alleged gang member who is accused of murdering two men who shot Johnson and killed his friend, Dreekius Johnson, in 2015.

TMZ Sports reported Thursday that prosecutors allege Johnson paid Dominic Bolden and helped him become a leader in a drug trafficking organization.

An informant told Florida officials the former NFL player provided "funds and an individual who could continually supply Dominic Bolden with as much narcotics as needed to supply the DTO," per TMZ.

"There's no validity to any of these accusations," a representative for Johnson told TMZ.

He's not been formally charged with any crimes in the case.

The three-time Pro Bowl selection discussed the shooting that killed his friend on CBS Sports Radio in July 2015.

"It was a life-changing experience," Johnson, who was shot in the shoulder, said. "It showed you how to enjoy life and how to enjoy every day waking up. Because just as easily as it was one of my best friends that was sitting right next to me—the one that got killed—it easily could have been me. So these days, I'm just enjoying life and making sure I enjoy each day."

After six standout seasons with the Titans, the 2009 NFL Offensive Player of the Year spent one year with the New York Jets and three years with the Arizona Cardinals.

He last played in 2017 and signed a one-day contract to retire with Tennessee in 2019.
