    Former Jets wideout Keyshawn Johnson was arrested after a report of a domestic dispute in southern California Monday morning, police say. 

    A Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department statement says deputies responded to a residence in Calabasas at 12:48 a.m. Monday and determined the resident and his ex-girlfriend were involved in a domestic dispute, and the resident was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery.

    The department subsequently identified the resident as Johnson, who posted bond at 9:15 a.m. and was released.

    The Jets drafted Johnson with the top pick in the 1996 NFL draft, and spent three seasons with the team. He also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Dallas Cowboys and Carolina Panthers.

    He's currently an ESPN commentator and analyst. ESPN says it's aware of the arrest and is looking into the matter.

    A call to Johnson's agent was not immediately returned.
