Chad Johnson was officially charged on Wednesday, according to the Broward State Attorney’s Office for the incident that cost him a shot to be a member of the Dolphins in 2012.
The flamboyant football player is facing one count of misdemeanor domestic battery for allegedly head-butting his new wife, reality show cast member Evelyn Lozada, prosecutors said.
Johnson was arrested Aug. 11 at his home in Davie where he lived with Lozada. They had been arguing over a store receipt found in his car that included the purchase of a box of condoms. She had a neighbor call 911 and arriving officers noticed a cut on Lozada’s forehead, according to the investigative report.
