Chad Johnson was just arrested in Florida -- after a smoking hot Broward County judge determined the ex-NFL star violated his probation stemming from his 2012 domestic violence bust ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... a warrant had been issued for Johnson's arrest earlier this month after he failed to report to his probation officer on 2 occasions AND failed to show proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class.

Johnson's probation stemmed from his domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last year.

35-year-old Johnson appeared in a Broward County courtroom over his alleged probation violation -- and moments ago, the judge determined Chad WAS in violation and ordered him to be arrested and jailed.

Chad tried to tell the judge how the entire situation was a big misunderstanding -- but she wasn't having it ... watch the video.

TMZ has obtained Johnson's booking sheet -- he's listed as 6'4" 190 pounds.

Bond has been set at $1,000.

How come when Lindsay violates, they take her off probation and set her free?

I'll never understand people that don't do the simplest parts of their probation. It's cake. The worst part about it is how much it costs. I'd definitely pay a lot more to not have to spend one night in jail.
