MLS suspends Orlando's Will Johnson following arrest, misdemeanor chargeā€

The 30-year-old Johnson joined Orlando as a free agent this season after stints with Toronto, Portland, Real Salt Lake and Chicago.

Orlando City midfielder Will Johnson was arrested in Florida on a domestic battery charge early Wednesday morning, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Johnson's wife reportedly refused medical treatment at the scene and said she does not want to prosecute criminally.

The player was suspended pending investigations by MLS and the Orlando Police Department. According to the report, during a verbal argument Will turned his phone's audio recorder on, but when Caroline grabbed the phone to turn it off, Will ran over to her, wrapped his arms around her waist and the two fell to the ground on the brick patio.

Next, the statement from the club. The league "will remain in close communication with Orlando City SC, local law enforcement, and the MLS Players Union during this investigation", and until then, would not be providing any further comments on the situation. Until the matter has been resolved, the club also stated that they will not be providing any further comment, just as the MLS has made a decision to do as well. He's played in 25 games this season, earning 23 starts and scoring twice.

In a verbal and sworn written statement, Childs Johnson said the couple of almost five years is going through a divorce.
