NFL star Chad Johnson was arrested on domestic violence charges in Florida Saturday night following a physical altercation with his new wife Evelyn Lozada, in which he allegedly head butted her.
According to multiple confirmed reports, the newlyweds got into a heated argument on their way home from dinner after Evelyn confronted Chad about a receipt she found for a box of condoms.
When they arrived in the driveway of their home in Davie, FL (outside Miami), Johnson allegedly head butted Lozada, she told police. (Johnson’s side of the story is that they “accidentally knocked heads.”)
Lozada, who stars on the VH1 reality show “Basketball Wives,” was treated at a hospital for a cut to her forehead, police said.
Johnson, who is a receiver for the Miami Dolphins, was hauled off to the Broward County Jail, and police say he could possibly have to wait until Monday to see a judge. He was charged with simple battery, domestic violence, which is a misdemeanor.
