Update: Dolphins Release Chad Johnson following Arrest
Update: The Miami Dolphins have released Chad Johnson following his arrest.
Chad Johnson, Dolphins receiver, has been arrested and charged with a misdemeanor for domestic violence. Reports indicate that Johnson headbutted his wife when she confronted him over a receipt she found for a box of condoms in his car.
Johnson married his wife, Evelyn Lozada just a few months ago in a July 4th ceremony.
Lozada was reportedly treated on scene and taken to hospital with a laceration to her forehead.
There is some dispute as to exactly what happened. Lozada reportedly told police that Johnson headbutted her. Johnson reportedly told police that they both leaned forward in the car at the same time and their heads collided.
The Dolphins are featured in this years edition of HBO’s critically acclaimed series “Hard Knocks”. Johnson and Lozada were heavily featured in the series’ first episode which aired last week.
Johnson had a difficult season for the New England Patriots last year. He hoped to resurrect his career this season in Miami. He recently changed his last name back to Johnson from Ochocinco.
We must caution that Johnson is innocent until proven guilty and that these are only initial reports.
