• Ex-NFL WR Johnson arrested in probation violation

    Updated:

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson has been arrested for a probation violation stemming from an altercation with his now ex-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada.
     
    Broadcast reports say a Broward County judge ordered Johnson jailed until he posts a $1,000 bond. Another hearing was set for June 3. An arrest warrant was issued earlier this month when Johnson failed to meet his probation officer.
     
    The six-time Pro Bowl player formerly known as Chad Ochocinco is serving a year's probation for head-butting Lozada during an argument last August.  She quickly filed for divorce. They had only been married since July 4.
     
    Johnson was released by the Miami Dolphins after the incident. He also played for the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.
     
    Lozada is on the "Basketball Wives" TV show.
