PLAYERS: Chad Ochocinco
TEAMS: Miami Dolphins
As big of a goofball as Chad Johnson is, the one thing he has always been quick to point out is that he’s never been in trouble with the law. Call him a distraction, a loudmouth, or whatever, but the guy wasn’t getting arrested like his NFL counterparts. Until now. Davie Police Department captain Dale Engle confirmed to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel that Johnson was arrested on Saturday night for domestic violence. The Sun-Sentinel reports that Johnson head-butted wife Evelyn Lozada during an argument on Saturday night. When police arrived on the scene, Lozada reportedly had lacerations on her forehead and Johnson was arrested. The two were married on July 4 and have had a public relationship. Both have starred in reality TV shows.
  • You lie with dogs, you rise with fleas. I DO NOT condone domestic violence, but this man should have known what he was getting. Did a week go by when she was not in a fight? it was a matter of time. Say what you want about him, but he had NEVER been in that kind of trouble. He needs run like a bat outta hell! Hope his prenup is good!
  • What a clown this guy is!!
