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.

Hey, you wanna be a big shot celebrity, so guess what.....you need to set an example for the rest of the men in your society that losing your temper like a spoiled little boy and banging your head into someone, which could have caused their death, is not the way for an educated, civilized man to behave.

He doesn't need jail time. obviously madly in love with this so called woman and is deeply suffering.
As Prior said...he's in love with a bitch he can't stand".
The worst thing that can happen to him or anyone in a relationship like this is to move on as painful as it might be.
