Chad Johnson was booked into Broward County Jail last night following his arrest for allegedly head-butting his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, during an argument. 

Johnson went before a judge early this morning (see the quick hearing below) where bond was set at $2,500. He's expected to post and be released within the next few hours.

Johnson was also ordered not to have contact with Lozada, which is common practice in domestic violence cases.

A rep for the Miami Dolphins released a statement on the arrest, saying, "We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all the relevent information."

As TMZ previously reported, sources close to Lozada tell us the two got into a verbal argument when Lozada found a receipt for condoms and confronted Johnson about it. We're told Lozada claims Johnson head-butted her during the argument, while Johnson told police it was an accident.

STFU    

This is certainly embarrassing . Their entire relationship and/or marriage is just a fake as the cheap weave in that hoe's head.

Violence seems to be her nature, not his. I'm not saying he didn't do it on purpose, but I'm sure she started the physical part of it. That's her m.o.

Chad and T.O. used to be buddies, until the rumors about Evelyn cheating with T.O. came up. While Chad's star was still rising, T.O.'s was sinking. T.O. got tossed a lifeline recently, while Chad just got tossed a ball and chain (Evelyn and jail). I'll bet T.O. is ROFL about this. Going to jail behind a woman like Evelyn = priceless!!

Remember the bad old days when Robin Givens set up Mike Tyson the same way? You would think men would learn from this and stay away from these publicity driven whores who are going to provoke you or set you up so that they can capitalize both off your wallet and from the publicity.

Poor Chad has to deal with Evelyn's loose and sloppy front and rear entrances. He was just looking for some tight holes and at least he was using protection. She should be thanking him!

FACINGREALITY    

KARMA is REAL! - Jen tried to tell this broad that her relationship was FAKE and that she shouldn't get caught up again with another athlete but NO - Evelyn saw those dollar signs and went for broke. Plus, how do you tell a man he can cheat and then get mad when he does. Evelyn Lozado you are a Non Mother****n factor!

She's not innocent in all this, but if I found my husband with a receipt for condoms (and what the story doesn't seem to tell is that she went ballistic cause they don't use em), it's domestic violence city for sure.

I've never watched basketball wives, but I've seen blog posts about wanting to get it cancelled because of its ignorance and lack of class. A man should never out his hands on a woman. Ever. But she's a Puerto Rican woman from the Bronx...did she initiate it?

Sick of lying cheating punk stories. She was engaged for years to a lying cheating punk before she married this dude. Why would he do that to her. Should, of course, the story be true... Not that I am a Lozado fan. She can be erratic, and likes to keep things argued up to 20, bullies, and fights on the show... and that's not a good look. In the end, He needs to do better!

LMAO, it seems that more and more Black Men are finding out the hard way. The grass isn't greener on the other side.
