Johnson, who is currently an NFL analyst on ESPN, is said to be out after making $20,000 bail.

TMZ says a fight between Johnson and an ex-girlfriend "allegedly got physical" and that he caused "a gash to her hand" by smashing her phone.

According to the website, the alleged argument was over marriage.

Johnson was the Pac-10 player of the year in 1995 and had 168 receptions for 2,796 yards and 16 touchdowns for the Trojans.

The three-time Pro Bowler played for four teams in his 11-year NFL career, winning a Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2002.
