UPDATE: James Johnson enters not guilty plea

James Johnson has entered a not guilty plea in relation to his recent domestic assault charge.  

According to Memphis Police, the couple got into some type of altercation as they were leaving Beale Street early Saturday morning. The 27-year-old’s wife called police after she says Johnson hit her in the face with his open hand and choked her.

The police report stated Johnson also pushed his wife’s mother, took their young child, and ran off. He was arrested when he came back to his downtown home and charged with domestic assault. -via myFOXMemphis
