Chad Johnson

Arrested for Domestic Violence

8/12/2012 6:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Chad Johnson mug shot after arrest.NFL star Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night for domestic violence ... allegedly against new wife Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1's "Basketball Wives."

Law enforcement sources tell us Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument, and when cops arrived to the scene, Lozada had lacerations on her forehead. 

Our sources say Lozada has been at the hospital for several hours.

According to our 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.

We're told at some point during the argument, Johnson head-butted Lozada. According to reports, Johnson told police he butted heads with Lozada by accident.

Johnson is reportedly still in custody and will have to go before a judge before he can be released.

Johnson and Lozada were married last month after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.

update_bar
8:45PM PT  Johnson is still at the Davie, FL police station, but will eventually be transferred to a county jail facility. Authorities tell us he will remain in custody tonight, and since there are no bond judges scheduled to work Sunday ... it's entirely possible Chad will be cooling off behind bars until Monday morning.

Chad & Evelyn,

It has been just a few weeks and you are at the start line of BS. Evelyn, I recall you crying to not wanting to be hurt, but at the same time giving permission for Chad to creep. He will only remember the approval. Now the head butting just might make things worst. If you are in the relationship for love, with Chad love the moment of the good times you spent together, but I think you are a big girl handle your business. For Chad, dont get caught up, somebody gonna get you and a condom want protect your back account or penis...

Why was Chad arrest and not Evelyn. It don't make sense he would yell f--k it "I don't give a d--n about my career". Evelyn is lying. the cops should had put her in jail, but because she was a woman and he is a tall healthy dark skin man he got thrown in jail. No empathy for Chad, he knew Evelyn was twisted in the head and a firecracker. So he met his match she is just a few steps clever. I think she is going to make sure he ruins his career thats her plan. The woman is psycho.

One more thing... This is all Evelyn and you are right this guy would not head butt any woman. That's Evelyn kind of drama. Well Chad is in for a real financial lost with Lozada.

I like it when stuff like this happens to these pro athletes. By the time she is done with him, he will regret the day he met her. Now beating a woman is not right but what do you expect in this case. How to you marry a known whore and then think stuff like this wont happen

Well there goes the 10 ct diamond ring and her meal ticket. Wonder how this works for both of them, He lost his job because of his mouth work and now this put the straw of the camels back. Funny how she never reported this kind of behavior until she married him? Well there won't be a lot of money for her divorce settlement now lol The whole thing sounds like a set up to me. She waits a few weeks until after the wedding and then this crap goes down and it never happened before? Not buying it.
