Chad Johnson

Charged with Battery

EXCLUSIVE

Chad Johnson has officially been charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly headbutting his wife Evelyn Lozada during a nuclear argument last month, this according to the State Attorney for Broward County, Florida.

If convicted, Chad faces up to a year in jail.

As we reported, Chad was arrested for domestic violence in Florida on August 11th after a fight over a condom receipt allegedly turned violent. Evelyn told police Chad headbutted her.

At the time of the fight, Evelyn and Chad had barely been married a month. Evelyn has since filed for divorce, claiming their marriage had become "irretrievably broken."

Chad is refusing to sign any divorce papers, insisting he's still in love with her. 

Chad was also dropped from the Miami Dolphins following his arrest. He's now a free agent.

We all know he's not going to jail. Probably a slap on the wrist with probation,fine, community service and anger management. Not saying he was right for head butting her, but Evelyn is a bully herself and I hope she will learn from this and change her f*cked up attitude.

Does anybody remember when this guy dropped the football 2 yards before a touchdown in celebration during the Fiesta Bowl in 2001, I think. He's always been full of himself, not a good guy for a team if he can't have all the glory.

While I am sorry he seems to have resulted in Violence, I also call Karma on her arse. How does it feel EVELYN to be on the receiving end of someone with no impulse control, LIKE YOURSELF? What's worse, what he did to you because he's a man or you tossing wine bottles at another woman's head? Maybe you should stop and think about that for a while.
