Miami Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson is out of jail and off the Dolphins team after spending the night for his Saturday arrest on domestic violence charges.

Johnson appeared in front of a judge at 8:30 a.m. Sunday, his bond was set at $2,500, and he was ordered not to have contact with his wife Evelyn Lozada.

From ESPN:

Davie police Capt. Dale Engle said the argument, which occurred in the front of the couple's home, started when Lozada confronted Johnson about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms.

According to an arrest affidavit, Johnson's wife said she was taking groceries into their home when she found the receipt in the car's trunk. When the two were seated back in the car, they began talking about the receipt and their marriage. That's when Johnson got upset and head-butted his wife, the report says.

Lozada ran to a neighbor's house and called police. A responding officer said he saw a 3-inch cut on Lozada's forehead, according to the affidavit.

Johnson did not have any visible marks or bruises. When questioned by police, he confirmed there was an argument over the receipt, but said his wife had head-butted him.

The officer, based on interviews and observations, charged Johnson with simple domestic battery.

If convicted, Johnson faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine, though he could also receive community service, probation or anger management classes.

NFL.com reports that Lozada told police that she wants to press charges, signing the affidavit to do so.

Johnson has been arrested for domestic violence before. In college, he was arrested for an altercation with his then-girlfriend Chevon Jex. He was required to take anger-management classes and placed on probation.
