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.
