Chad Johnson Cops Plea, Avoids Jail in Head-Butt Case

by at . Comments

Chad Johnson just cut a deal to keep his unemployed a$$ out of jail.

The former NFL star was arrested for domestic violence after head-butting Evelyn Lozada during an argument, but he's agreed to be placed on probation and complete extensive anger management counseling in exchange for a guilty or no contest plea.

That will keep him out of jail on the battery charge he's facing.

A hearing has been scheduled for tomorrow, during which a judge is expected to sign off on the plea bargain and make it official. Man, they wrapped this up quick.

Evelyn and Chad's divorce was finalized yesterday. They wed July 4. Not even six weeks later, she found a receipt for condoms in their car and lost her $h!t.

He allegedly head-butted her at that point, and was arrested; Evelyn filed for divorce, VH1 axed their show and the Miami Dolphins cut Chad loose within days.

Life's changed quite a bit for him in the last three months. Lots of free time for Madden now at least, despite the awkwardness of having to create himself.
