Chad Johnson

Booked Into Jail,

Held on $2,500 Bond

8/12/2012 7:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

10:10 AM ET -- Johnson was released around 10:00 AM ET.

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.

i don't know what happened,so let's be careful about conclusions. women were ignored for many years re dometsic violence,and that was tragic. now,we live in a world of overcompensation,where a woman can say almost anything,and the cops arrest the man right away. additionally,athletes, because of their status as sex symbols with money,are going to attract opportunistic low-life women,and neurotic insecure women. both of these,are very capable of screwing up a guys life.

I bet Ocho head butted her alright, with his fist though. Why are these wives and girlfriends of professional sports players delusional about being the only women in their man's King size beds? Evelyn is just the type to suffer from domestic violence, because she is violent, loud, messy and greedy. You need more than hood chemistry and a reality network paycheck to make a marriage work. These two don't even know each other well enough for a serious marriage and she should have thanked him for buying condoms for safe sex with other women like her, instead of beating a dead horse who bucked back! I think it was just a front anyway by Chad, it was his way of telling her/showing her look B*tch! You are not the only one, but I married you so you are my main one! I mean who purposely or mistakenly leaves out a receipt for condoms for his new reality Slore Bride to find? SMH..

There's a problem here    

As the majority of white folks who grew up in the 50s my grandfather was racist. Not saying that is a good thing but that's the way it was. I always remember him saying if I was ever in a fight with "a colored" never to try to punch them in the head because their heads were so hard you couldn't hurt them. Maybe he had a point.

Good thing he kept the receipt. Now he can return them since he wont be needing them.

Damn, you're stupid. I told you not to marry this broad. I hope this is some type of publicity stunt. You retared men with cash, I'll tell you again, smash then go home. That's it!!! You keep your money, houses, cars and respect.
