Former NFL running back Chris Johnson has been accused of playing a role in two different 2016 murders, according to TMZ Sports.

Johnson is reportedly accused by an unnamed informant in court documents of giving Dominic Bolden “funds and an individual who could continually supply Dominic Bolden with as much narcotics as needed to supply” a drug trafficking organization after the man allegedly shot and killed two people in Florida.

According to the same documents, Johnson’s alleged role stems from a 2015 shooting in which he survived. The same shooting allegedly led to the death of Dreekius Johnson.

The former Jets and Titans running back is accused of playing a role in the killings because the two victims were his alleged shooters. But he hasn’t been charged with anything at this point, according to the TMZ report.

The former electric running back tweeted Thursday that it’s “false news” and a rep of his denied the claims to TMZ.

It’s worth noting again that Johnson hasn’t been charged with any crimes, and these are nothing more than allegations in a court document.

He’s also denying them. In America, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty. That’s the way it works here and that’s a good thing.
