Chad Johnson Gets Arrested For Headbutting His Wife Evelyn Lozada...

Chad Johnson was arrested yesterday August 11, 2012 for misdemeanor domestic battery. Apparently, Chad Johnson intentionally headbutted his wife Evelyn Lozada. The headbutt was said to have followed an argument that stemmed from his wife questioning a receipt from a box of condom purchase. While Evelyn Lozada informed authorities that her husband Chad intentionally leaned in to headbutt her; 
Chad insists that they were exiting the driveway and both of them leaned in an their heads butted. However, Evelyn has a laceration to the head, and was treated on the scene, and was later transported to a nearby hospital. 

This incident comes all but one month after the couple took their wedding vows. This is so sad, I was so pulling for this couple. However, the loss of fans, should be the least of Chad Johnson's worries because it seems that this stunt may have put his football career in great jeopardy.

According to ESPN,

A judge has set bond at $2,500 for Dolphins receiver 
Chad Johnson, who is being held in a Florida jail on a domestic violence charge after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument.

Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says Johnson posted the bond Sunday morning, though jail records show he had not yet been released. Swickle says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada.
Such orders are common in domestic violence cases.
Swickle declined to comment further.
Police say the 34-year-old Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, was arrestedSaturday. Davie police Capt. Dale Engle said the argument, which occurred in the front of the couple's home, started when Lozada confronted Johnson about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms.
Lozada, who is on the reality show "Basketball Wives," was treated at a hospital for a cut to her forehead, Engle said.
Team officials were "aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering relevant information," Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said. The team are scheduled to hold practice early Sunday afternoon.
Johnson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined to comment.
Johnson signed with the Dolphins in June, four days after he was released by New England. A six-time Pro Bowl receiver with Cincinnati, he caught only 15 passes in 15 games for the Patriots last year after they acquired him in a trade for a pair of draft picks.
On Friday night in the Dolphins' 20-7 loss to Tampa Bay in their preseason opener, the only pass thrown to Johnson slipped through his hands.
Johnson was known as Ochocinco for the past four seasons. The name was a playful reference to the No. 85 he wore on his jersey.
Johnson and Lozada were prominent in the recent first episode of HBO's "Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins."
In one sequence 40 minutes into the show, as he is leaving the Dolphins' facility before the first off-day of camp, Johnson jokes to Stuart Weinstein, the Dolphins' chief security investigator, who is off-camera, that he would be arrested.
