Johnny was arrested in London in 1999 after a scuffle with photographers outside a restaurant and was later cautioned.
His wife Amber recently avoided jail in Australia after pleading guilty to providing a false immigration document amid allegations she smuggled the couple’s dogs Pistol and Boo into the country.
