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, 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.
