Chad Johnson just saw things go from bad to worse this evening. The Miami Dolphins decided to part ways with the veteran Wide Receiver after he was arrested and charged with domestic violence. This revelation was first reported by Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer via his Twitter account.
According to Sports Illustrated,
Johnson posted $2,500 bond Sunday and was released from jail after his wife, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. The dispute simmered after Lozada found a receipt for a box of condoms, The Associated Press reported.
Earlier Sunday, Philbin said he hadn’t yet spoken or met with Johnson. He had warned Johnson a couple of days earlier about his behavior after Johnson liberally used profanity during an interview opportunity with reporters.
“We’re going to deal with this at the appropriate time. We’re not going to waste time. … We’re all in this thing together. Everybody that sets foot in this building, we’re all held to a high standard.”
Chad nor Evelyn have taken address the incident to the public. Chad and Evelyn Johnson have a reality show premiering on Vh1 this Labor Day. Still no official word from Chad or Evelyn regarding the controversy.
