MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson has cut a deal to avoid jail time for the alleged headbutting of his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada, according to TMZ.com.

TMZ’s report stated that Johnson agreed to be placed on probation and complete “extensive anger management counseling in exchange for either a guilty or no contest plea.”

Johnson was charged with misdemeanor battery after Lozada told authorities he headbutted her during an argument. Lozada reportedly found a receipt for a box of condoms and confronted Johnson about it which led to the fight.

After Johnson’s arrest, he was summarily cut by the Miami Dolphins in a scene that was caught on camera by the HBO show “Hard Knocks.” Johnson has been out of the NFL since the Dolphins cut him in the preseason.

TMZ reported Johnson also agreed to a no-contact order that would prevent the free agent receiver from talking to his ex-wife. TMZ said the deal is expected to be approved by a judge on Friday.
