Chad Johnson
insists he's no wife beater ... and entered a "not guilty" plea to misdemeanor battery this morning for the alleged attack on his wife Evelyn Lozada last month.

TMZ broke the story, Chad was charged with domestic battery yesterday following his arrest in Florida on August 11th.

According to Chad's wife, the former NFL player headbutted her during a massive argument that erupted after Evelyn found a condom receipt in Chad's car. If convicted, Johnson faces up to a year in jail.

Evelyn has since filed for divorce.

Chad's attorney entered the football star's plea in Broward County Court this morning. Chad was not there.

ok.. at one point I felt sorry for Chad getting caught up in that smutt's web.. but now.... idk. He tatted her face on his leg, he doesn't want to divorce??? C'mon Chad.. is it still about the attention? Maybe Jennifer (BBW) was right ... he is an attention whore.

How the hell you're going to claim you didn't do it when you acknowledged earlier that you did.

Chad, I hope u prevail here but I doubt it. When you sleep with crazy, violent reality show queens, bad stuff usually follows. And destroying your football career and going to jail is pretty bad stuff. Seriously dumb move dating this wack job, let alone marrying her. Didn't you see her in Baketball Wives? She's cuckoo bananas!

I don't think anyone expected this publicity hound to accept responsibility for his behavior.

Neither one is a prize. Both deserve each other. If Chad is smart...He will get an annulled not a divorce. less drama and less money into her greedy hands.

Not guilty? On what grounds? You act like such a bad ass, own up to it, be a man. (sorry, maybe 'man' is a poor word choice, a real man doesn't treat women like that. I apologize if I've offended any real man by lumping this d-bag into the same category.)
