Johnson, wife argued over receipt for condoms

Is there a way to buy HBO stock on a Saturday night?

The arrest of Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson reportedly was precipitated by an argument over a receipt for a box of condoms that his wife, Evelyn Lozada, found in Johnson’s car.

Davie Police Captain Dale Engle reportedly said that Lozada confronted Johnson about the condoms.   Engle also said that Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada in the vehicle when the couple arrived at their driveway.

Johnson claims that he and Lozada accidentally knocked heads while arguing.

Johnson remains in custody, and he won’t be eligible for release until a bail hearing, which could occur as late as Monday.

Meanwhile, the next episode — or two — of Hard Knocks suddenly got very interesting.

    Should have “raw-dogged” it

  2. banvard316 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:20 PM

    At least he’s being safe while cheating!

  3. moerawn says: Aug 11, 2012 11:20 PM

    This stuff writes itself.

  4. bennyb82 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:21 PM

    Important lesson: never keep condom receipts laying around if you are married and especially if you married a basketball wife reality show participant.

  5. hulkhogansays says: Aug 11, 2012 11:25 PM

    I feel sorry for nobody in this situation brother. The should both be banned from having the ability to reproduce ever again.

  6. mikeyfins says: Aug 11, 2012 11:26 PM

    1) Chad told Stu last week on Hard Knocks he was going to get arrested.

    2) Chad told the media he was going into Porn…hey you gotta provide as he put it

    As Chad said in the episode as well, for a decade I told you what I was going to do and I did it. Well, Chad lived up to his reputation. He TOLD YOU what he was going to do and he did it! lol

    The headline for this is nothing less than phenomenal.

  8. fournora says: Aug 11, 2012 11:27 PM

    I’d like to hear her side. I just can’t see him goin out like that.

  9. narrabeen23 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:28 PM

    I’m not sayin he shoulda hit her…but I understand

    Smh. Have you seen Evelyn Lozada’s body?! Who are you cheating on…a month after getting married? Her face and her attitude are messed up but her body is da truth!

  12. aheezybaby says: Aug 11, 2012 11:29 PM

    pay cash no need to take a receipt dummy

  13. shzastl says: Aug 11, 2012 11:30 PM

    Very plausible that she was in a state of mind to want to lash out by being less than truthful to the police

  14. samwade611 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:30 PM

    Read his wifes tweets today. They don’t sound like a girl who got beat up or any problems besides having allergies. Truth will come out.

  15. b1gwin says: Aug 11, 2012 11:31 PM

    What kind of dummy keeps a reciept with the desription “condoms” on it? Was he holding on to it for his keepsake box of treasures? Maybe this was actually his first purchase of condoms? Most of us accomplished that feat around the age of 16.

  16. lolo376 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:31 PM

    Wow, this marriage may be shorter than Kim Kardashians lol!

  17. stevenfbrackett says: Aug 11, 2012 11:31 PM

    Every store, every gas station, every retail shop of any kind that I know of has a trash can right next to the door. Why didn’t you use it, idiot??

    We’ll address the morality later…..

  18. villa41 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:31 PM

    Whole thing is starting to smell like Chad and his wife are coming up with story lines for the show. I can see the charges being dropped in a few days when Chad’s wife says he really didn’t head butt her.

    If I’m Philbin, then I’m not liking this at all. Seems like Johnson is more concered about his TV career than NFL career. Philbin needs to cut this fool, and send a message he’s not running another party bot on Lake Minnetonka.

  19. chuckyd317 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:32 PM

    She busted him… so he busted her…

    If u look for it u will find what u don’t know won’t hurt professional sports are like Hollywood not for marriage.

  22. istateyourname says: Aug 11, 2012 11:33 PM

    In Obamerica aren’t the rubbers supposed to be free for the chicks? This should never have happened.

  23. goredskins11 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:33 PM

    That’s going to end up being one expensive box of condoms.

  24. kilo0986 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:34 PM

    Who among us hasn’t just “accidentally knocked heads” when arguing, or even just in casual conversation?

    I thought condoms were suppose to keep you out of trouble.
    Go figure.

  34. kspl1 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:41 PM

    He should’ve never married that bird. Leftover from another dude…….Antoine walkers old chic. Real lame of him

  35. wannstache says: Aug 11, 2012 11:41 PM

    Only Ross, Ireland and the condescending Philbin didn’t see something like this coming.

  36. hockeyflow33 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:42 PM

    and that’s why you don’t use condoms

  37. tdk24 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:45 PM

    I still have no interest in watching any season of hard knocks.

  38. firestarter0728 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:48 PM

    There’s a Chris Rock comedy routine in here somewhere.

  39. ppc50 says: Aug 11, 2012 11:49 PM

    My wife and I watch Basketball Wives, pure trash entertainment and they are all NBA exes. On the episodes they were on, Johnson made it clear that he would continue to see other women and invite other girls into their relationship. She was engaged to Antoine Walker, until he went broke, and is a cleat chaser and dream killer, met Johnson on Twitter. She has attacked women on the show and is nuts. What he allegedly did is absolutely wrong, but she knew exactly what she was doing. She will get half and walk away.

  40. skoobyfl says: Aug 11, 2012 11:50 PM

    A loss of employment over a condom purchase, this is a new one.

  41. vincentbojackson says: Aug 11, 2012 11:51 PM

    This is gonna cost Ocho a lot of pesos.

  42. norcalmafia says: Aug 11, 2012 11:52 PM

    I think evelyn could take chad…shes one tough cookie….aaaah young love…I wonder whats cheaper a box if condoms or a shot of penacylin….I know whats cheaper than both…….Seahawk tickets!

  43. fuddpucker says: Aug 11, 2012 11:53 PM

    Ocho + Condoms = Soft-Knocks?

  44. dogluverssuck says: Aug 11, 2012 11:55 PM

    He should of just told her “so what?”

  45. dalucks says: Aug 11, 2012 11:55 PM

    How many more divorces do people have to go through before they realize extra martial affairs are not worth the trouble? Ask Tiger Woods was it worth it. Why even get married? Unbelievable. A receipt for a box of condoms, where you really going to return or exchange the condoms? Why is he keeping the reciept? This entire story is on stupid detail after another.

    I love all these new twist the NFL is adding to Hard knocks with DG’s knee and Chad giving his wife some sweet chin music !!!
    What’s to come ?

  49. peepeetoucher says: Aug 11, 2012 11:59 PM

    Who keeps receipts in the first place, let alone one for condoms when your married? Looks like BB was right about Chad, he belongs on the short bus.

  50. acerockefellar says: Aug 12, 2012 12:01 AM

    Man, I feel bad for this guy.

    Chad is truly a good guy, whether he shows it on the field or not.

    Never drinks alcohol, donates money, In cincy he constantly bought the remaining tickets out so the fans could see the game.

    Treats hundreds and hundreds of fans to dinner every season before games.

    etc. etc. etc.

    Definitely doesnt deserve this.

  51. philwauke says: Aug 12, 2012 12:01 AM

    Receipt? He can get those free.

  52. jacksaysfu says: Aug 12, 2012 12:04 AM

    Johnson needs to be protected at all times !

  53. jacksaysfu says: Aug 12, 2012 12:06 AM

    He got caught giving another girl a dirty ocho-cinco

  54. juzthadoginme says: Aug 12, 2012 12:11 AM

    this has got to be a joke ,,,right….what a dumbass…

  55. silverhornet says: Aug 12, 2012 12:12 AM

    When his CPA told him to keep his receipts, unfortunately he went too far.

    But he said on HK that he didn’t have sex all last season… a self imposed moratorium on the topic since he played so poorly. After dropping his only pass Friday night, what the hell is he going to use those condoms on?

  56. mikehoncho79 says: Aug 12, 2012 12:13 AM

    I guarantee Antonio Cromartie and his wife never argue over CONDOMS!

  57. charliework says: Aug 12, 2012 12:13 AM

    Who would’ve thought that a romantic relationship that began on Twitter would experience such difficulty?

  58. backindasaddle says: Aug 12, 2012 12:15 AM

    I guess I’m “Old Fashioned”….. You get married, you install the wedding clamp on your left ring finger and you commit to your spouse for the rest of your life. It’s a mutual commitment and devotion to each other. It’s called marriage and it’s one the most fundamental pillars upon which civil society rests. It’s really very important because it’s the foundation upon which families are built and is one of the principles that brings order, values, and stability to society. I know I must sound like some sort of prudish a-hole….. but really?…. This stuff is near and dear to my heart. I truly believe that marriage is hugely important to society and that means commitment, devotion, loyalty….. and faithfulness to each other. When I see athletes (or anybody else) cheating on their spouse, it saddens me because I look at it as not only a degradation of their marriage and their family…. but also as a degradation of societal values and an undermining of a fundamental pillar of society itself. Maybe I’m being a bit too heavy….. Maybe I’m being “Old Fashioned”…. Maybe….. Maybe not.

  59. Brandon says: Aug 12, 2012 12:16 AM

    “Child Please”….well maybe not apparently LOL

    You just can’t make this up, I would be surprised if his pro career gets another shot after this….can’t see the Dolphins keeping him at this point.

  60. noodlecbs says: Aug 12, 2012 12:17 AM

    An arguement DRC has never had…..

  61. peytonsneck18 says: Aug 12, 2012 12:19 AM

    That why u have her supply them or at least throw away the receipt, went to jail over 6 bucks

  62. mrfloydpink says: Aug 12, 2012 12:21 AM

    What is with this site’s obsession with Hard Knocks? I swear that show gets mentioned in every third post.

  63. Josh says: Aug 12, 2012 12:25 AM

    Come on people. This is totally a publicity stunt. They have their new show premier and all that. I would be sad if I beleived this were true for one second. There is no chance though. She will decline to press charges and they will both bask in the glow of their new found publicity. Chad has been trying too hard to be the bad boy the last few weeks. You could tell it was for some type of set up. Guess we know what it was now.

  64. 1standlong says: Aug 12, 2012 12:27 AM

    He called his shot on hard knocks…said he was going to get arrested and did.

  65. cgarsmoker says: Aug 12, 2012 12:33 AM

    Why save the receipt on a box of condoms? You plan on taking them back if they don’t fit? Sheesh! What a silly silly man!

  66. hrmlss says: Aug 12, 2012 12:38 AM

    Well compared to 98% of the NFL at least he knows what a condom is.

  67. steeltuff says: Aug 12, 2012 12:46 AM

    Obviously, the rubber has met the road.

  68. 950003cups says: Aug 12, 2012 12:52 AM

    WTF was he holding on to those receipts for? Saving them for a tax write off?

    Ocho! If you’re reading this:

    Rule #1
    When buying condoms, tell the clerk “I don’t need a receipt”

    Rule #2
    If he gives it to you anyway, toll it in the nearest garbage can

    Rule #3
    If there are no garbage cans, and you don’t want to litter, eat the damn receipt

    Rule #4
    If all else fails, just make sure under no circumstances does that paper enter your home!! Ever!!

    Rule #5
    If your too stupid to follow rules 1 thru 4, blame it on a friend!!!!

  69. daknight93 says: Aug 12, 2012 12:52 AM

    @gaykegayden…that was funny…but if you do it raw, high risk of catching something..but Chad screwed up by leaving condoms in his car..Like Fred Sanford say…”You Big Dummy”

  70. 4512dawg4512 says: Aug 12, 2012 1:00 AM

    I’d consider giving up my manhood to be a smoking hot ambitionless girl, then go bag a rich pro athlete and accuse him of abuse or not fulfilling payment on the beautiful little piggy bank that I gave birth to just so I could live the rich life the easy way, I think I could actually do that….

  71. colts419 says: Aug 12, 2012 1:02 AM

    evelyn lozada is a celebrity hopping gold digger. she should shut the hell up and be gracious chads letting her leech off of him in order to stretch her 15 minutes as long as she can. skank.

  72. 1985bears says: Aug 12, 2012 1:06 AM

    Cardinal Rule #19

    When purchasing condoms for your side piece, discard box and receipt in the trash prior to getting into car leaving the gas station.

    Cardinal Rule #20

    Discard any unused condoms out the car window immediately after leaving said side piece’s home. Its only about $2 bucks you throwing away but it saves you a lot of money in the long run.

  75. qdawg44 says: Aug 12, 2012 1:18 AM

    see………. condoms do nothing but get you into trouble….; signed Antonio Cromartie

  76. biggestredmiami says: Aug 12, 2012 1:25 AM

    Seriously, out of all of the things he does, this is the last thing I thought Chad would do. Honestly can’t believe this story, not only as a Fins fan, but an Ochocinco fan. Hope it’s not true dude!!

  77. therealskippyhandelman says: Aug 12, 2012 1:28 AM

    Why would you even touch that receipt let alone walk it all the way back to the car?!?! Tell the cashier “no thanks, can you throw that out for me”!!! OR, don’t cheat on your wife!!! I mean c’mon, you’re still newlyweds! You weren’t even gonna try to be faithful the first year? Or at least until the phins first 4 games losing streak!?!?

  88. 1phd says: Aug 12, 2012 1:52 AM

    One day mankind will find enlightenment and realize that sleeping around is natural. Love is what counts, for yourself first. Being physical with more than one person is part of everyone’s DNA.

  89. somekat says: Aug 12, 2012 1:54 AM

    Perfect example of how people are caught cheating 99% of the time.

    Only a really special type of turd would head-butt his wife.

    He must feel really tough now, the POS.

    He needs to be cut now and no team should go near him, this turd is radioactive.

    Hey he’s being responsible. After being with a Bball wife you know hes carrying Noahs Arch of STD’s. good looks chado. You know ocho can do better than that blank anyways.. no? Antoine walkers ex really?

  109. mudville88 says: Aug 12, 2012 6:06 AM

    Maybe he kept the receipt for tax purposes

  110. pattunya says: Aug 12, 2012 6:13 AM

    I thought condoms would prevent trouble. Who knew.

  111. brainsmasher says: Aug 12, 2012 6:23 AM

    The purpose of marriage is so the woman stops messing around, not the man, because that is all she brings to the relationship. All of the other stuff you can do for yourself.

  112. profpatsyhater says: Aug 12, 2012 6:33 AM

    If true he must be cut immediately

  113. bmoresabres says: Aug 12, 2012 6:42 AM

    Cut this clown now! He is a pompous and self promoting arse. The Dolphins surely do not need such a distraction.

  114. blackcatnfl says: Aug 12, 2012 6:58 AM

    At least now we know the real reason he changed his name back to “Johnson”.

  116. mdbengal says: Aug 12, 2012 7:34 AM

    I guess it’s safe to say his first porn flick won’t be titled “Bareback Mountain”.

  117. billh1947 says: Aug 12, 2012 7:49 AM

    His wife nagged him all the way home in the car,she should be happy he had the foresight to wear condoms when doing his thing with other babes, otherwise she could have ended up with a nasty disease,she should praise him for being to safety concious.if she wanted husband with a pure heart she should never have married an ego maniac pro athlete who loves to ball.

  118. TurkeyJoeJones says: Aug 12, 2012 8:01 AM

    I guess Ochostinko should trade in that HOF golden jacket on one those body condoms from “The Naked Gun” movies for his enshrinment in the Johnson HOF?

  119. wrw0101 says: Aug 12, 2012 8:07 AM

    Look at the picture of his wife in the next story. Hubba hubba. They have only been married one month. She needs to get her alimony and move on. If she wants to get even with him, she can call me and I will help her show him what it feels like to know your spouse is with another dude.

    Well, if this was Irvin, we’d know what the condoms are for. That man will do anything for some rock.

    If he was stupid enough to keep the reciept in his car im sure the conversation at checkout went something like this..

    Clerk: “Ok sir 1 box of condoms…do you need a bag with those?”

    Chad: “Heck NO bro…they aint THAT ugly!”

    So it appears he got caught with a box of condoms not meant for his wife. I guess Chad forgot his job is to catch passes, not make them.
