Chad Johnson a.k.a Ochocinco got arrested over the weekend for domestic violence charges. The new scandal had Dolphins decide to cut Chad Johnson off the team, just 24 hours later after his arrest.
Over the weekend, Chad Johnson or Ochocinco was arrested. Ochocinco and his wife, Evelyn Lozada got into an argument over a box of condoms. Evelyn found the box of condoms in her husband’s vehicle and confronted him about it. Ochocinco reacted so aggressively, Evelyn ran to a neighbor’s house to “get away from” him.
TMZ reports the officer who arrested Chad Johnson noticed Evelyn Lozada had a wound on her forehead. Evelyn Lozada claims Chad Johnson head-butted her. The police officer who arrested the Miami Dolphins’ former football star said Evelyn Lozada had a three-inch gash on her forehead.
Chad Johnson spent Saturday evening and night behind bars for allegedly head-butting his wife. Early Sunday, Johnson made bail on a $2,500 bond. Hours later, the Miami Dolphins announced they decided to cut Chad Johnson off the team. From the looks of it, the Dolphins were just waiting for Chad Johnson’s next big scandal.
Coach Joe Philbin for the Miami Dolphins said Sunday after team practice he is going to see Johnson soon. “We’re going to deal with this” the coach said just before the football star made bail. “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” the coach stated.
A few hours later, the Miami Dolphins announced Chad Johnson is released from the team. But some Dolphins stars have a different take on that. “It’s going to be an even bigger distraction right now, I think, because of the simple fact we let him go” said Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby early Monday.
“I think if we were going to be with the guy, if he was going to be our guy, we have to stand behind him – even though the situation came about. He didn’t get that third strike” argued Karlos Dansby.
According to Chad Johnson’s attorney, Evelyn Lozada asked the police to forbid her husband from making any contact with her. Chad Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco is looking at one year in jail and a $1,000 fine if he will be convicted on the simple domestic battery misdemeanor charge.
