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.

Overkill. If he were a politician... Its great that the NBA and NFL are standing up to players and their shena****ns outside of the field, court. Kobe missed this era.

I really hope that Chad's dumb ass tweets are gonna stop now and that he'll take some time out to reflect over his garbage life and gets his **** together. This man ruined everything over his dick. Did Michael Jordan have a reality show and sexcapades in the public??? No !!! MJ was a serious athlete who took his job very serious despite being paid a crumb of what these big time earners make today
in the NFL and the NBA. Lebron James is smarter than all of these idiots because he keeps the image of the family man out there and gets endorsement deal after endorsement deal and stays humble. Chad Johnson and Tyrel Owens belong to the same group of asholes who lost everything over their *****. Well they deserve to be broke and deserve all the public scrutiny that they are getting !!!

He still has time to annul the marriage. Evelyn should now realize she is very insecure although she tries to exude confidence. Chad will be himself with or without her...

What about some of these other athletes who have done the same, but are still playing? I always have sympathy for victims of domestic violence, but this girl (she's no woman) has been bullying and abusing people on that show of her's a long time. He should have walked away, but she is trouble!
