Arrest warrant issued for Chad Johnson

Chad Johnson, whose NFL career came to an end when he was cut by the Dolphins following a domestic violence incident, is once again in trouble in connection with the same incident.

A judge has issued a warrant for Johnson’s arrest because he violated his probation by failing to report to his probation officer, a spokesman for the Broward State Attorney’s Office told the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

On August 11, Johnson’s then-wife, Evelyn Lozada, said he head-butted her during an argument. The domestic violence charge led the Dolphins to cut him, as documented on Hard Knocks, and that effectively ended Johnson’s career, as no other team considered Johnson worth the trouble.

Johnson eventually pleaded no contest and was placed on probation. He and Lozada divorced in September after 11 weeks of marriage.

According to comments he posted on Twitter, Johnson is currently in Pasadena.

    Him and TO should get back to making episodes of the T.Ocho show, since neither of them has anything better to do.

    Once upon a time, the Skins wanted to give up two first-round draft picks for this clown. Mike Brown, thank you for saving us from ourselves!

    Unfortuanetly his ego, is bigger than his talents.

  13. TuneDawg says: May 16, 2013 5:45 PM

    Quick, Chad, change your name back to Ocho Cinco. They’ll never find you…

    That last part is correct but great guys usually do not have probation officers… and then fail to report

  16. questforthesixthnotthelast2013 says: May 16, 2013 5:51 PM

    I thought he changed his name legally to Chad Ochocinco?
    Aparrently they arrested the wrong man!
    Kiss the baby! That’s funny right there!!!

  17. Deb says: May 16, 2013 5:54 PM

    Have never cared for Johnson and always thought his ego far outweighed his talent. But he seemed to have enough personality, humor, and flair for self-promotion to make more of his post-football career than this.

  18. filthymcnasty1 says: May 16, 2013 6:03 PM

    Oucho Cinco.

  19. firestarter0728 says: May 16, 2013 6:11 PM

    Chad is just an older version of Titus.

    aint nobody got time for that

  23. t8ertot says: May 16, 2013 6:59 PM

    I don’t get it. He was always was a clown when he was in cincy. But he always stayed out of trouble. I’m thinking of burning his jersey. Or putting Eifert’s name on the back

  24. edithpiaf51 says: May 16, 2013 7:14 PM

    what a loser, congrats to the dolphins for cutting him. any man that hits a woman does not deserve to play in the NFL and any man that hits a woman should not even be on the streets

    Back when Chad Whatever-My-Last-Name-Is-This-Week was with the Bagels, my many Bungle fan friends would always say, “He’s high maintenance…but he’s worth it.”

    Haven’t heard that from them in a while. Can’t understand why.

  28. GenXJay says: May 16, 2013 9:48 PM

    Chad is a prophet.
    The name OchoCinco will now be handy in Mexico.

  29. tiggerblood says: May 16, 2013 10:20 PM

    Because he isn’t with the Bengals anymore and hasn’t been for awhile.
    I have no clue why they didn’t unload him when the Redskins called bad move.

  30. drainbameged says: May 16, 2013 11:52 PM

    In the words of the great Homer Simpson….


  31. addict2sport says: May 16, 2013 11:57 PM

    At least someone wants him. Too bad, for his sake, it’s the police and not Evelyn or a NFL team.

  32. beelicker says: May 17, 2013 12:56 AM

    >>> Haven’t heard that from them in a while. Can’t understand why <<<

    Maybe because your time machine must have broken down & you're stuck in 2010 before the Bengals swiped 5th & 6th round picks him from the Patriots for him?

  33. joetoronto says: May 17, 2013 5:28 AM

    He’s a Bengal through and through, Mike Brown must be proud. SMH.

  34. pinion8ted says: May 17, 2013 7:54 AM

    I thought they’d charged him with stealing $7 million from the Patriots

  35. natijim235 says: May 17, 2013 9:02 AM

    the ‘new’ ocho cinco -85 – in cincy tyler eifert acts like a pro athlete should and not like this self centered, attention grabber, look – at – me chad johnson

  36. fins33 says: May 17, 2013 9:19 AM

    He should hide on an NFL roster. It’s the last place the police would think to look.

  37. kidwave1 says: May 17, 2013 10:17 AM

    Remember when this guy wore the “Hall of Fame” jacket on the sidelines? What a clown. Hall of Fame Jerk, yes!

  38. starderup says: May 17, 2013 11:54 AM

    Is there some sort of secret Pro Bowl for NFL players where they compete to see how low can you go? Because he could be an alternate right now, and maybe move up to starting with OJ Simpson soon.

  39. edithpiaf51 says: May 17, 2013 3:56 PM

    I have a question if anyone can answer it. Why does Chad have 50 million last names? I guess he has the funds to keep changing his name. what happened to cinco-ocho?85. i guess that was his IQ.

  40. edithpiaf51 says: May 17, 2013 3:57 PM

    should be ocho-cinco but was being funny. 85. so really my last post said his IQ was 58
