Deputies from the the Malibu/Lost Hills Station responded about 12:48 a.m. to a call regarding a possible spousal assault at a residence, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

When the deputies arrived, they determined that Johnson and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute, according to the Sheriff’s Department.

An investigation resulted in Johnson’s arrest for alleged misdemeanor domestic battery, the statement said. He was released after posting bond at 9:15 a.m.

Johnson, a graduate of Dorsey High School and the University of Southern California, was the first pick in the 1996 NFL draft.

During his 11-year professional career, he was selected for the Pro Bowl three times and won a Super Bowl championship in 2003 as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
