First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes…..domestic violence. Wait, what? Yep, that appears to be the case for newly married Chad Johnson (Ochocinco) and Evelyn Lozada. In fact, the Miami Dolphins receiver was arrested last night and has been accused of domestic violence against his new wife, and Basketball Wives‘ star, Evelyn Lozada. Ah, there is nothing like wedded bliss!
Chad Johnson aka Chad Ochocinco was arrested last night for alleged domestic violence against his new wife, Evelyn Lozada. According to TMZ, Johnson and Lozada got into a dispute, and Chad allegedly head-butted Evelyn. When the police arrived, Evelyn had multiple lacerations on her forehead in which she was treated for at the hospital.
Sources close to the couple say that the dispute between the pair started when Evelyn Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the couple’s car, and she angrily confronted Chad Johnson about it. Oh boy, they were just married – could he be cheating already? The argument then escalated, and ended up in a head-butt.
Chad Johnson told the police that he head-butted Evelyn by accident, and there is no word yet from Evelyn on the incident. Police didn’t buy it though, and Chad was arrested last night. Authorities told the site that Chad will remain in custody today, and could possibly be there until Monday morning.
According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Johnson’s bond is set at $2,500 and he has been ordered not to have contact with Evelyn Lozada. Meanwhile, Miami Dolphin team officials have said that they are: “aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering relevant information.”
Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada were married last month, and shortly after the wedding, Chad went back to his last name of Johnson, dropping the Ochocinco that many know him by. The couple’s new reality series, Ev and Ocho is set to premiere next month on VH1.
