Terrell Owens and Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson play together in Cincinnati in 2010.

Terrell Owens spent part of his weekend in the bighouse.

The unemployed wide receiver stopped by Broward County jail on Saturday, paying a visit to his jailed former teammate, Chad Johnson.

In a series of tweets on Saturday, Owens detailed his visit with Johnson, aka Chad Ochocinco. Johnson is serving 30 days in county jail for violating his probation. The 35-year-old former wide receiver reportedly blew off two meetings with his probation officer and failed to show the required proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class.

His hearing took an odd turn last week when a judge scolded him for slapping his attorney on his backside, which his lawyer says was a sign of appreciation.

Owens, who played alongside Johnson for one season in Cincinnati, said that his old teammate is in good spirits and in need of a haircut.

“That was the 1st time ever visiting someone in jail & hopefully the last,” Owens tweeted. “That’s not a place anyone wants to be regardless of how many days.”

“I really didn’t know what to expect but to see the homie locked up is a very humbling experience,” Owens continued. “To talk to him via vid converence let me know that’s not where anyone wants to be.

“I know he’s only in the bounty jail but to someone has has never been locked up … Jail is Jail!”

Johnson last played in the NFL in 2011, with the Patriots, and has struggled to make the transition from star athlete to retired athlete.

At his hearing last week, Johnson admitted: “My life is in shambles right now.”
