Lost in French: CFLer racks up 15 Montreal parking tickets over French signs

Former NFL star and current Montreal Alouettes Chad Johnson seems to be having a little trouble reading French-language parking signs, and is looking to the city’s mayor for help.

Early Tuesday, the player formerly known as Chad Ochocinco tweeted at Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, saying he’s racking up parking tickets because he can’t understand the street signs.

Johnson is trying to revive his football career in Montreal after an 11-year NFL career, much of that spent with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Over 166 career games, he caught 766 passes for more than 11,000 yards and 67 touchdowns. He’s been out of the NFL since 2011, when he was charged with a domestic battery offence.
Johnson signed a two-year deal with the Alouettes earlier this year.
