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.

After watching basketball wives , I bet Evelyn is the one who headbutted Chad. This sounds like some kinda sick love though, for him to tatoo Evelyn's face on his leg?

Come on people just because a woman cries DV does not mean it is so! Where are the pics, knowing this ho she would have had the re-re picks all over the net. Where is the proof the police report and picks the police usually take? What no police picks for this one. Come on public do not be so stupid. She had not a mark bruise or a hint of an old bruise or stitch.This girl planned all of this from the very beginning and it will come back to bite you E. NO way she would have kept this to herself she would have shown the whole world those bruises but not one pick why not? She is the pub hound and he is stupid as hell for wanting to continue in a relationship with the one. Go your way and leave the garbage in the can. She gets all the sympathy and he is ruined-stupid as he is!! I DO MOT BELIEVE HER FOR ONE a second of the publicity she is getting!!! Go AWAY E. YOU ARE OLD AND OLD NEWS> SHAME ON YOU FOR RUINING A PERSONS LIFE JUST TO GET FAME FOR YOURSELF AND OF COURSE A FEW $$$$$$$$ FROM O.
