NFL star Chad “Ocho Cinco” Johnson was arrested for for domestic violence allegedly against new wife Evelyn Lozada (one of the stars of VH1’s “Basketball Wives”), on Saturday August 11th, 2012 at the Florida home he shares with his new wife. The South Florida Sun-Sentinal reports that Johnson, who is currently in training camp with the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, and Lozada were returning home from dinner when an argument broke out between the two.
According to TMZ sources, the fight started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the center of the couple’s Maserati and confronted Johnson about it. A verbal argument ensued.
“By the time they get home here in Davie it’s pretty heated,” Davie Police Department Capt. Dale Engle tells the Sun-Sentinal. “She alleges he leaned over and head butted her. He says she leaned towards him and that they butted heads. Needless to say she has a good laceration on her forehead.”
According to NFL.com, Lozada emerged from the car with a “pretty good-sized” laceration on her head and was later taken to the emergency room at the West Side Regional Hospital, where she was treated.
The police report describes a “laceration on the center of her forehead, approximately 3 inches in length.”
Lozada told police that Johnson began screaming at her after the assault in an obscenity-laced tirade.
She got so scared during their spat that she “fled on foot to a neighbor’s house to get away from Johnson.”
“Johnson began driving the neighborhood looking for (her). She hid at her neighbor’s house until they arrived home. At this time, they called police,” according to the police report.
The report, however, reads like a classic he-said, she-said.
Johnson countered his wife’s story, telling police it was Lozada’s fault. He admitted to cops that they had argued, but claimed she was the one who struck his head.
Johnson and Lozada tied the knot last month in a lavish wedding held in Miami, after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.
Johnson was freed from jail Sunday after posting a $2,500 bond, but refused to comment on reporters’ questions about his Saturday night bust, according to TMZ. The 34-year-old wide receiver looked tight-lipped as he stalked out of a Miami jail, just a few hours after being arrested on charges he head-butted his wife.
According to several news outlets by the time Johnson was released from Jail he was already been released by the Miami Dolphins.
Following practice, coach Joe Philbin said he had yet to meet with Johnson but would soon. Johnson, has been battling for a spot on the team after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011.
“We’re going to deal with this at the appropriate time,” Philbin said. “We’re not going to waste time. … We’re all in this thing together. Everybody that sets foot in this building, we’re all held to a high standard.”
Only five days earlier, Philbin said Johnson’s roster spot could be in jeopardy if he didn’t temper his freewheeling behavior. Johnson annoyed the coach by frequently using profanity during a session with reporters.
