FIRED! Chad Johnson Released From Miami Dolphins After Evelyn Lozada Domestic Violence Arrest!
Published on August 13, 2012
As the Miami Dolphins took the field for practice Sunday, Chad 'Ochocinco' Johnson was getting out of jail. Hours later, he was out of work. The Dolphins terminated the six-time Pro Bowl receiver's contract about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife. Johnson was released from jail on $2,500 bond earlier Sunday after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. Johnson was charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor. The confrontation came barely a month after Johnson married Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show "Basketball Wives." The 34-year-old Johnson had been battling for a spot on the team after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011. Following Sunday's practice, coach Joe Philbin said he would meet soon with Johnson.
