Chad Johnson: Released By Dolphins After Arrest!

by at . Comments

Good news for Chad Johnson: He's out of jail on $2,500 bond.

Bad news: He's also out of a job.

About 24 hours after Chad Johnson's arrest for domestic violence, the Miami Dolphins released the loquacious, mercurial six-time Pro Bowl receiver.

Johnson was released from jail Sunday after his wife, Evelyn Lozada, accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home.

Chad Johnson, Jail

Chad, who married Basketball Wives star Evelyn in Miami on July 4, was officially charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor offense.

Only five days earlier, Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said Johnson's roster spot could be in jeopardy if he didn't temper his freewheeling behavior.

This incident apparently was the final straw.

Johnson, who recently changed his name back from Chad Ochocinco after four years with that absurd surname, was arrested on Saturday.

Allegedly, Evelyn Lozada confronted him about a receipt she found in their car trunk for a box of condoms, police said, sparking an argument.

With the two seated in the car, they began talking about the receipt and their marriage, and Chad allegedly got angry and head-butted his wife.

Lozada ran to a neighbor's house and called police.

A responding officer said Lozada had a 3-inch cut on her forehead, according to reports, while Johnson did not have any visible marks or bruises.

When questioned by police, the NFL star confirmed there had in fact been an argument over the receipt, but said his wife had head-butted him.

Johnson has long been known for his unusual antics that annoyed his teammates as well as coaches, yet made him popular with many fans.

If convicted, he faces up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine. He could also receive community service, probation or anger management classes.

Chad start thinking with that big head instead of the lil head, Evelyn has an alligator mouth plus she's a last word Lazurite woman. Her symbol must be a fish because she's always caught with her mouth open. You've still got skills hopefully some team will pick you up and you'll drop Evelyn and her drama. She cant be that great in bed unless she really knows how to use that mouth without talking. Good Luck!

I don't condone violence from anyone & I can't stand Chad or Evelyn. I wouldn't doubt that she head butted him or attacked him 1st. Anyone who has seen the show knows Evelyn is violent & has outburst at the drop of a dime. What will VH1 do with the show that's supposed to air in September about their wedding? They are both media whores & I hope they don't get back together. As for the Dolphins, I am so glad they sent him packing, we didn't need another drama queen on the team.

Stick a fork in him...he's done. This guy's football game has been going downhill for YEARS. When celebrity becomes more important than the game, this is what happens.

Typical case of taking the pug out of the mud still acts like a pig.
