MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night in Davie on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge after police said he head-butted his wife, Evelyn Lozada.
The incident took place in Johnson’s car and that Lozada had laceration on her head.
Davie Police Captain Dale Engle said the couple got into a heated argument over a receipt for condoms found in the car. According to Engle, Lozada found the receipt and confronted Johnson about it.
The Dolphins said they were aware of the incident and are reviewing it, according to NFL.com.
Johnson and Lozada have been married since July 4, 2012.
Before acquiring Johnson in the offseason, the Dolphins traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall away due to his numerous off-the-field incidents, including domestic violence.
Johnson had reportedly been one of the better receivers in training camp, but his future with the team is unknown now.
