Chad Johnson

Charged with Battery

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.

I'm making $86 an hour working from home. I was shocked when my neighbour told me she was averaging $95 but I see how it works now. I feel so much freedom now that I'm my own boss. This is what I do,.Read More

Chad is a dumbass for marrying Evelyn, she is a high class hood-rat. Come on dude, you should of learned to stay away from women like her in high school! Evelyn has nothing else going on for herself and she's about to make $$$ from Chad's stupidity.

Evil-lyn is done with Chad. His football career is over, his tv career is over, he's now charged with assault and EVIL-lynn is jumping off the gravy train before it completely derails. She'll soon be slithering over to her next victim/husband and God help the fool she chooses next.

Whatever, no worries about jail time...men always get off the 1st, 2nd, 3rd time. He'll get anger management requirements, then it'll be dismissed

Johnson, get a lawyer. granted headbutting is not good but, barely married a month? guess she is already going for the legal factor.


Johnson, look at the bright side, dumped by 2 teams, no money

Now I get it... all those antics were him he was kissing up to that chick and the court, hoping that they'd drop any charges---not to mention that he doesn't want to pay out the prenup money he stashed away. This guy is a perfect example of how arrogance is blinding. He has no idea of what a bloody idiot he looks like to the world. But I blame the folks that kept give him breaks and not consequences. An idiot like that guy views breaks as weakness. Just imagine what what the story would be if the Dolphins was stupid enough to keep him. He would have thought that he got over AGAIN... and from the impression of what I've read, that Evelyn chick might have hung around a little longer to cash in... and then he'd/they'd come up with some stupid reality show to cash in on their "reconciliation" or go on Dr. Jew, I mean Drew... and he'd exploit them and more drama on and off the field. I'm bored even thinking about it.
