Chad Johnson In Custody After Breaking Probation

May 21, 2013 06:35 AM by Lisa Princ

Chad Johnson may have recently been a hero for a day to a homeless man, but in Florida, the former beau of Basketball Wives‘ star Evelyn Lozada is a wanted man, or at least he was. Yesterday, Chad Johnson was taken into custody after breaking his probation. Yikes!

Chad Johnson can’t seem to catch a break these days, can he? Last month, Johnson proudly shared his “good deed” of taking a homeless out for the day, which included buying the man some new clothes and shoes. But now, Chad Johnson has been taken into custody in Florida.

According to TMZ, Chad Johnson was arrested yesterday for breaking his probation. Earlier this month, there was a warrant issued for Johnson’s arrest, after he failed to check in with his probation officer, and reportedly failed to provide proof that he had enrolled in a domestic violence program. If you recall, Johnson was involved in a domestic violence dispute with Evelyn Lozada last year, shortly after the couple were married.

But when the former Dancing With The Stars contestant showed up in court yesterday, he couldn’t Waltz his way out jail. Johnson tried to plead his case, claiming it was nothing more than a misunderstanding, but the judge did not buy his story. Instead, she ruled that he was definitely in violation of his probation, and he was arrested and jailed. Bond was set at $1K.

Perhaps Johnson will take his probation a little more seriously now.

    “Chad Johnson… the former beau of Basketball Wives‘ star Evelyn Lozada…”

    Boy, losing his Love, career, endorsements, DWTS, and (twice) his FREEDOM? I don’t think he’s having a very good year. Maybe next time he’ll USE HIS HEAD to THINK before using it to HEAD BUTT his WIFE!

    (FYI fact check for article writer, Lisa Princ — He was MARRIED to Evelyn. Not just her “Beau”. That’s okay. I’m sure Chad would like to forget that li’l fact too!) ( Smile!)
