Retired football player Keyshawn Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of domestic violence.

Justin Bieber’s former neighbor was taken into custody on Monday morning following an alleged bust-up with his ex-girlfriend at his Calabasas, California home.

He was booked for misdemeanor domestic battery and was released on $20,000 bail, according to TMZ.com.

Johnson, who now works as a TV pundit for sports network ESPN, hit headlines last year after fuming about Bieber’s sports car-driving, fast-paced partying lifestyle in the gated community they shared in Calabasas.

They have both since moved out – Johnson sold his pad to Kourtney Kardashian in August, while Bieber offloaded his mansion to the reality TV star’s sister Khloe last month.

FILE - In this Nov. 28, 2012 file photo, former Illinois Congressman Mel Reynolds announces that he's running for the 2nd District seat vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr., in Chicago. Reynolds has been indicted on federal tax evasion charges, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Chicago said in a statement Friday June 26, 2015. The indictment says the 63-year-old Chicago Democrat failed to file income tax returns for four consecutive years, between 2009 and 2012. Each count of failing to file carries a maximum one-year prison sentence.
