NFL player Chad Johnson, also known as Chad “Ochocinco” is violent both on and off the football field. Johnson married Evelyn Lozada last month in front of reality television cameras that captured that couple’s special day. However, after only one month, trouble has struck paradise.
Chad Johnson was arrested this weekend on suspicion of domestic violence. TMZ reported that the six-foot-one wide receiver supposedly head-butted Evelyn Lozada in front of their home.
Evelyn Lozada told police that she confronted Johnson about finding a receipt for condoms in their car. After their argument started getting very heated and took a turn for the worse, Evelyn Lozada ran to a neighbor’s house to call 911. Johnson was arrested after Evelyn Lozada was found with cuts on her forehead.
Chad Johnson stated that he “accidentally” bumped his head with hers. The NFL player was released from a Florida jail Sunday after spending the night there Saturday. Johnson’s football career is now at jeopardy as the Miami Dolphins posted a notification on their website stating, “The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson, the team announced today.”
Although Johnson has kept a clear record since his NFL career began, he was arrested in college for a domestic dispute. If convicted, Johnson will be faced with a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1000 fine.
