Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada got married over this summer and are on the verge of having a reality TV show together. But it looks like things may have gotten rocky between the newly weds as Chad Johnson was reportedly arrested on a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence this Saturday night.
According to the Davie (Fla.) Police Department, Chad Johnson head-butted Evelyn Lozada during a “heated argument” over a condom receipt that was found in the car that started after the two left from having dinner. Cpt. Dale Engle told both NFL.com and NFL Network that Evelyn was treated at the scene for a “pretty good-sized” laceration and she was taken to the hospital shortly after the incident occurred.
Chad Johnson remains in custody at the moment and won’t be eligible for release until a bail hearing is set, which looks to be this upcoming Monday.
The allegations have not yet been confirmed by Chad or Evelyn at this time.
The Sun Sentinel reports:
Johnson and his wife went to a restaurant for dinner. They returned home and she found a receipt for a box of condoms, Engle said.
An argument ensued, Engle said.
“It gets pretty heated,” Engle said. “By the time they get home here in Davie it’s pretty heated. She alleges he leaned over and head butted her. He says she leaned towards him and that they butted heads. Needless to say she has a good laceration on her forehead.”
When cops came on the scene Lozada, a star in VH1’s Basketball Wives reality series, had lacerations on her forehead, and Johnson was arrested.
Since entering the NFL in 2001 Johnson, a Miami native who lives in Davie, had never been arrested. But he was arrested in college for a domestic dispute.
Johnson and Lozada were married on July 4 and their wedding is supposed to be part of a VH1 reality series that begins in September called Eve & Ocho.
Update: Chad’s mugshot has been released.
