Chad Johnson

CUT by Dolphins

After Arrest

8/12/2012 5:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.

I hope he's smart enough to file for an annulment. This chick Evelyn is so dramatic. Based upon her behavior on tv Evelyn may have hit him first. She can finally say she was a wife. Chad will continue to be himself and I seriously doubt that he will be broke. Evelyn should have listened to her true friend Jennifer. Now who's looking dumb Evelyn.

This marriage was a disaster waiting to happen. MAYBE they would not be in this situation if they stayed clear of each other. P.S....When will Men learn that everything that looks good...IS NOT. Especially Evelyn of BBW.

Damn, a gold digging ho can really **** up a man's life!! Chad, it's only been a month, so you can still get out of this minimal monetary damage. If you stay and get screwed later on alimony and child support, I won't feel sorry for you.

I feel vindicated! I made several comments on TMZ when they first reported his arrest that the Dolphins should just cut him. At 34 years old with no production last year for the Pats there is no reason to put up with his drama. Get out of Miami Chad and take your ghetto wife with you

Chad Johnson....what an idiot. I knew nothing good would come from him dealing with that woman from Basketball Wives.

Also, goes to show you how clowning around all the time will bite you in the ass. I hope T.O. uses this as a good example of how to stop F$%#ing around and get serious.
