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.

That guy thinks the he can smooze anybody--except that coach for the Dolphins (that was funny). The dumb ass should have turned himself in after TMZ snitched on him, but NOOOooooOOoo. That idiot went on--business as usual---guess he thought that all courts are like the California Celebrity Courts. --
SCARY THOUGHT.

There's Lindsay Lohan, and then there's everybody else. That's why we all get so outraged when Lindasy
gets off every single time.
