Chad Johnson

CUT by Dolphins

After Arrest

Exclusive Details

0811_chad_ochocinco_miami_dophinsAdd unemployment to Chad Johnson's list of problems -- the Miami Dolphins have reportedly cut their star wide receiver ... 24 hours after his arrest for domestic violence.

Sources close to the veteran player tell TMZ ... he had a meeting with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin about an hour ago. Must not have gone well -- FOX Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting the team dropped Johnson.

As we previously reported, Johnson was arrested Saturday night and booked for domestic violence ... after allegedly head-butting his wife, "Basketball Wives" star Evelyn Lozada.

He spent the night in jail and was released on $2,500 bond today.

Say It Isn't So    

Well, I hope he's been financially responsible w/his money, or that wh0re wife will bleed him dry. But, then again, I doubt it. What is it w/black men not being able to keep a handle on their finances or their tempers? Sheesh.

'aboiut time. The stats are just ridiculous. Also, there's no such thing as "domestic violence." It's assault, attempted murder, and of course, Murder.

Bravo Dolphins!

just my opinion    

this is fcking sad!! i know that chad is an ego maniac but he is not a violent criminal. i am always a staunch supporter of women when it comes to domestic violence but this woman has beat up or attempted to beat up and verbally abuse several women on tv !! she's a reality fame whore and she's ruined this guys life. the nfl is about talent and hard work. all she's ever done is lay on her back for antoine walker to get a store now she's done the same with chad for her own spin off.

i just don't believe things happened the way she said it.

if it turns out that it did happen the way she said thn i take everything back...innocent until proven guilty on this one.
