LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Las Vegas police say former NFL running back Larry Johnson is in jail after he was arrested in a felony domestic violence case.

Police officer Jose Martinez says the 32-year-old Johnson was arrested early Friday at the Bellagio resort on the Las Vegas Strip. Details weren't immediately available.

Records show Johnson is being held at the Clark County jail on $15,000 bail.

Johnson most recently played for the Miami Dolphins in 2011.

He has been arrested several times during his nine-year NFL career, and served what amounted to a one-game suspension in 2009 for using an anti-gay slur.

Johnson was sentenced in March 2009 to two years' probation after pleading guilty to two disturbing the peace charges in separate incidents involving women at Kansas City nightclubs.
