Chad Johnson Settles in 'Bogus Raffle' Suit

Bengals WR Chad Johnson has settled in the class action suit against him regarding a bogus raffle.

To get you up to speed, Ocho Cinco and the Funny Bone Comedy Club were sued because there was a raffle held at the club in which Chad Johnson was giving away a Lexus. Well, the Lexus was instead given to Chad's girlfriend as the raffle ticket buyers stood by and watched.

Come to find out that there were other prizes that Chad agreed to raffle off (trips, tickets) that winners were stiffed on, too. Hence the class action suit.

Well, Chad and the club have agreed to pay $100,000 to the 30 people involved in the suit. The case was set to go to trial next Monday.

So, what does this mean? Well, that payment equals out to $3,333 per person ... and that is before legal fees and all that kind of stuff comes out. At best, the patrons will receive much more than their money back, justice was served (I guess) and we can freeze frame out into the credits.
