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.

Last time I checked, lacerations were cuts, contusions were bruises....I'm not a medical professional, but how does head butting cause cuts?

That's a real bullchit system, because that leaves people in jail for several days, even the innocent ones, because the fatazz judges want the day off.

Chad's domestic abuse situation reminds me of that (1996) video... by Babyface feat. Stevie Wonder - "HOW COME, HOW LONG"

We all know that Evelyn is a major bully. She bullied Jennifer to death and hit her over the head about this Chad situation. We all know that KARMA is a B. That being said, I don't condone violence and I wish her well. I wonder if she is going to press charges since they gave Jennifer so much hell about filing charges on Eve's assistant. Abuse is never the answer and no man is worth losing a great friend over. I hope Evelyn learns from this.

How are people making this about her? He (most likely) cheated and head-butts her and your response is that HE shouldn't have married HER? Kind of backwards.
