Chad Johnson may have demonstrated recently that he still has a big heart thanks to the recent good deed he did for a homeless man, but besides beefing with ex-wife Evelyn Lozada via his Twitter account, there’s still one more reminder of the violent end of their short-lived marriage, and that would be his probation. Of course Chad isn’t mum on the fact that he regrets the marriage and doesn’t really consider it a real marriage since it ended the way it did, but he is still on probation for assaulting the “Basketball Wives” star, and is reportedly bringing more legal issues on himself because he’s not following the guidelines set by his probation officer. Although Chad was able to escape serving any jail time for his assault on Evelyn, he’s not totally in the clear yet. TMZ is reporting that a warrant was issued for the arrest of the former NFL player because he failed to report to his probation officer:

TMZ has learned … a warrant has been issued for Johnson’s arrest in Broward County, Florida — stemming from his domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last year.

The Broward County District Attorney’s Office tells us … Johnson has failed to report to his probation officer — a violation of the terms of his probation — and on May 7, a judge issued the warrant.

Once Johnson is taken into custody — a hearing will be set to determine whether Johnson did in fact violate his probation. If he did, it could mean jail time.


  1. Uh-oh. I like Chad. I wish he would have never married Evelyn, but you live and you learn. I hope it all works out for him.
