Chad Johnson has been formally charged with battery following his alleged attack on Evelyn Lozada last month. He faces up to a year in jail if convicted.
The former Ochocinco was arrested for domestic violence in Florida after a fight over a condom receipt allegedly got violent and he head-butted his wife.
She filed for divorce days later after less than six weeks of marriage.
Broward County, Fla., officials made the decision to charge Chad today.
Evelyn Lozada claims their marriage had become "irretrievably broken" and has made it clear there will be no reconciling with the former NFL star here.
Chad apparently didn't get the memo, as he's refusing to sign divorce papers, insisting he's still in love with her and telling off his critics on Twitter.
He also got a tattoo of Ev's face on his leg. Her face.
Johnson was also dropped from the Miami Dolphins - on HBO's Hard Knocks no less - following his arrest and is now a free agent. Any NFL takers out there? Hello?
