Former “Bachelorette” star Chad Johnson is facing a number of charges in his domestic violence case involving his on-again, off-again girlfriend Annalise Mishler.
According to court documents provided to Page Six by the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office, the 32-year-old reality star has been charged with one count of corporal injury to Mishler, one count of assault and battery, one count of witness intimidation, one count of trespassing and two counts of vandalism — stemming from his Feb. 24 arrest.
Records show that it is alleged that “force and violence was committed against a spouse, a person with whom the defendant was cohabiting, a person who is the parent of the defendant’s child, former spouse, fiancé, and fiancée, and a person with whom the defendant has, and has previously had, a dating and engagement relationship.”
In late February, Johnson was arrested for robbery after Mishler called 911 during an altercation, in which she alleged that Johnson punched holes in the wall and grabbed her phone from her.
A portion of the fight was recorded on video and posted on Instagram.
Johnson blamed his actions on alcohol, saying he had a “big relapse.”
“I don’t remember actually seeing her,” he told TooFab. “I drank to the point where I didn’t even know I was with her. I just gotta take the Instagram Story’s word that I was there. I screwed up 1000 percent. You can’t take that kind of stuff back.”
In a video shared on his Instagram Stories a few days later, Johnson insisted that he never physically abused Mishler.
“There was never any domestic abuse of any kind,” he said. “I have never laid hands on a woman any time in my entire life.”
Johnson was then hospitalized on Feb. 29 because police reportedly became concerned he may be a danger to himself. The “Bachelorette” alum had posted alarming videos on his Instagram Stories of a rope and said, “I have no choice.”
Despite the charges, Johnson and Mishler appear to be working on their relationship.
The couple visited several news outlets on Monday, including E! News’ “Daily Pop,” where they gave an update on their status.
“We have a lot to work on, honestly,” Mishler said, citing “getting help for alcohol,” “couples therapy” and “individual therapy” as some of the resources they planned to use to help with their issues.
Johnson is due back in court on March 17.
