Narrowly avoiding time behind bars, Chad Johnson was sentenced to 12 months probation and a counseling course after agreeing to a plea deal in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on Friday morning (September 21).
The former NFL receiver plead "no contest" to a charge of domestic battery after allegedly head-butting his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada on August 11t. The reported assault occurred during a domestic dispute over a receipt for condoms.
Weeks after the August 11th incident allegedly occurred, Chad Johnson has been charged with misdemeanor battery.
Last month, the NFL star was arrested for domestic violence after allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. Problems apparently arose after Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in the football star's car.
Just weeks after she was allegedly headbutted by her husband, Evelyn Lozada has opened up about her divorce from Chad Johnson.
In an interview with ABC's "Nightline" on Friday (August 31), the 36-year-old reality star explained that her choice for leaving was for her own safety, explaining, “It’s the hardest thing in the world to walk away from someone that you really love. But you have to walk away because I have to protect myself.”
Bad news continues to surface for Chad Ochocinco after his Sunday (August 12) arrest for domestic violence.
According to a rep from VH1, the 34-year-old athlete's soon-to-premiere reality show featuring himself and his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, has been cancelled. The spokesperson told Gossip Cop, "Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev & Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it.”
