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.

Really Ocho Stinko! Hitting women is a cowardly thing to do but head butting is even worse and degradding. You usually head bunt someone when you can't win a fight straight up. Like a sucker punch or a surprise attack. But you hit your wife. Obviously you don't know what's it means to be a man or a husband. You have kids and adults who look up to you and you have a responsibility to do the right thing. After all you did get paid a lot of money and being a role model comes with the job. First you couldnt get your name right and now you can't get your marriage right. I hope you get the help you need!

Chad was a freaking idiot for marrying her. She's a firecracker who can push anyones buttons. We all know it. What were you thinking? Now you've just embarassed yourself. Plus, Evelyn knew who she was getting herself into too. So, don't fight and lose jobs and reputations over something that you already knew was going to happen. You guys should've never gotten married

I don't condone alleged domestic abuse but, damn Chad. I think you're a very nice person but, You were an idiot for marrying her in the first place. She was trouble from the beginning. Now, chasing chicks has costs you your marriage and career.

If everyone who's ever committed domestic violence on any level got fired, you'd pretty much change the face of unemployment. All the mellow people out working and more aggressive people sitting it out.
Pretty unfair to him though; all the hard work potentially can end cause of one retaliation.

His Ego,arrogance and weakness for an uneducated,light skinned,ignorant gold digger without a weave is what done him in! One day he's living this incredible life like a Rock Star and the very next day he has let some Skank destroy all that he has worked so hard for. If the dummy can't make money Evelyn is moving right along to the next athlete for certain. These Stupid Black athletes keep forgetting they are being built up to get dropped back down to the sobering realities from which they came anyway, so don't destroy your career any sooner over some damn attention sloring woman!
