Police: Miami Dolphins WR Chad Johnson arrested for domestic violence (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miami-dolphins/sfl-dolphins-chad-johnson-arrested-081112,0,751890.story)

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night for domestic violence, according to Davie Police Department captain Dale Engle. The police report was not immediately made available, but according to a source the incident took place in a vehicle Saturday night.

Johnson, who started Saturday night's 20-7 exhibition loss to Tampa Bay, allegedly head-butted his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, during an argument. When cops came on the scene Lozada, a star in VH1ís Basketball Wiveís Reality series, had lacerations on her forehead, and Johnson was arrested...

...........Over Rubbers.


Evelyn Lozada was so afraid of her husband, Chad Johnson, during last night's alleged altercation ... she had to flee to a neighbor's house for safety, this according to the police report.

According to the report, after Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument about a receipt for condoms, Johnson began screaming at Lozada, saying, "I don't give a ******! I don't give a ****** about my career!"

According to the report, Lozada "fled on foot to a neighbor's house to get away from Johnson."

The report goes on to say that Johnson drove around the neighborhood looking for Lozada, who had called police from the neighbor's home.

The officer who responded says in the report he observed a 3" laceration on her forehead. The officer said when he spoke to Johnson, he admitted the two argued, but said she yelled "****** it!" at him and then she head-butted him. link (http://www.tmz.com/2012/08/12/chad-johnson-arrested-police-report/)

I've always found it completely stupid at how so many people have brushed off all of Chad's actions over the years, and just said that he liked to be funny and entertain people. The guy has been a prick since he was in HS and has given every HC problems that he has ever had. He tried to punch Marvin Lewis in the middle of a playoff game at halftime. This isn't surprising at all honestly. I'm sure that he'll do something to make the news though where people will come back and say that he is just misunderstood or something like that. I've never understood the popularity of this clown who has never cared more about his team than himself. Hopefully, this will finally end any other discussions about Chad Johnson becoming a Texan as well. It seems like every off season people start threads about wanting to bring him in.

I'm guessing that this is the end of Chad Johnson in the NFL. I'm hopeful any way. I just really hope that the NFL network or ESPN doesn't hire him as an analyst.

I like the NFL network for what it is, but they already have the worst analysts to me. Michael Irvin and Deion should never have gotten those jobs. Marriuchi is probably the worst though.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Johnson was on a one-strike arrangement with the team. Coach Joe Philbin, who has welcomed plenty of distractions in the seven months since he took the job, ultimately didnít want the added distraction of the criminal prosecution of one of his higher-profile players.link (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/12/chad-johnson-was-on-a-one-strike-arrangement/)

Geez. Another career suicide.

It should have been apparent things were going to end badly when he was playing Xbox and flipped the ring box to the lady and half-ass proposed to her.

What asshat does that? Playing Xbox and casually proposes at the same time.

His give-a-****ter is beyond broke. It got incinerated and blasted into outer space where it embedded itself into a passing comet which took it to another galaxy.

It takes lots of planning and careful execution to carry out a career suicide the magnitude of what Chad Johnson just displayed. Even Terrell Owens has to feel 100 times better about himself right now. Right?

Just curious if all of you would do me a favor. Stop what you're doing for a just a second or two and think of the NFL. Think of how much you enjoy it and how much time you spend watching it or things about it.

Now ask yourself, is the NFL less fun today without this asshat?

I didn't think so. I came to the same conclusion. For years we've all been seeing those "Chad's just about entertainment and having a good time" posts as Texecutioner pointed out and I've got to say that I don't think NFL football will be even the slightest bit less entertaining and fun now that this clown has finally, mercifully left the stage.

If Chad Johnson never puts another uniform on and never takes the field again I think we'll all be just fine. When T.O. joins him in another year maybe this era of idiot receivers making fools out of themselves will draw to a close.

This ^^^ is where I'm at with it.

I've never been offended by any of his antics that I can think of. He's always just seemed like a class clown to me. He's just been amusing and silly, not serious. He had a few good years and he was really talented.

But in that pre-season game and with the Patriots, he looked spent to me. I don't know where his hands went but they must have seen the Medusa because they are solid stone now. He makes Jacoby Jones look like Owen Daniels wrt hands. Just performance-wise, I don't want him anywhere near our team.

But this thing with his wife? This is something I didn't expect to see from him.

Yes, however included but not limited to. Over the years I have seen some funny antics on the sidelines and endzones, and to me it was fun. Changes are made over time, and I have adjusted to the stiff catch the ball and hand it over to the referee, then go to the sidelines and sit down. Such is life, but the trip down memory lane still brings a smile to my face.

Back to the thread title, if Chad did what he's accused, then that behavior isn't acceptable and should be handled accordingly.

I'm in complete agreement with you about the entertainment factor.

Unfortunately, that often means that he's getting gloss when he doesn't deserve it. He gets run for being a clown instead of being a great receiver, and because he's gotten so much publicity, too many talking heads equate that showboat & mouth with talent.

Guys like A.J. and Fitzgerald, on the other hand, deserve lots of accolades, but because they are quiet workhorses, we hear more about Chad than we do of them.

I agree and want to add this:

That's because we live in a culture that says "The working man is a chump."

I love the line in Good Fellas when Ray Liotta's voice is narrating as he camera shows "wise guys" smoking cigars and living like kings. Remember how he narrates and says something to the effect of "We were on top of the world. We had everything in the palm of our hands. If we wanted something, we just took it. The regular Joe, 9-to-5 guy who works for a living? Nah. Who wants that when you can be a wise guy?"

Watching clips of AJ or Fitz methodically catching big passes just doesn't seem to attract the eyeballs like Chad Johnson keeping us on the edge of our seats as we wonder what he will come up with next when he scores a TD.

I suppose it's on our DNA to desire to be in constant anticipation of what shock tactics somebody like Chad Johnson will burst forth at any given moment. The regular, methodical work ethic and quiet devotion (the disciplined lifestyle) just puts us off. Nobody wants to see THAT. Plus, we cannot even make "that" attractive on a TV screen, can we? "Hey look, here we have Andre Johnson. Andre, let's talk about...well, about how you have become a great receiver."

Then Andre says he has to get up before everyone else does. He had to sacrifice personal time. He had to stay away from the wrong people. He had to eat well, work out all the time, and take every single second of his NFL life as seriously as he could take it. That's not what we want to hear. We want to see fun and antics, good time rock-n-rollers like Chad Johnson who must just possess great talent by accident (not by hard work) and this makes us feel less bad about our slovenly lives as couch potatoes who flip channels and watch all this stuff on our butts all weekend long.

That's all I got, DB.

We might hear more about receivers like Chad than we do guys like AJ and Fitzgerald, hell, even Megatron, but when people start talking about the best receivers in the league, Chad Johnson hasn't been in that discussion since 2007 despite the publicity he gets. AJ and Fitzgerald have even though they're quiet. I don't think anyone has been fooled into thinking that Chad's mouth and publicity efforts mean he's still a great receiver.

Hey man, guys like Chad are head cases that seem to cause more problems than they bring in. I never trusted him after reading about how he threw a punch at Marvin Lewis at halftime in the middle of their first big playoff game. watched a documentary about Chad many years ago which talked about all of hi9s problems with his coaches in college and in HS, and I was thinking about all the problems he had with Lewis as well. I just sat there wondering why anyone would want to bring in a guy like that on their squad when they never respect their coach's authority?

Actually a lot of people have. That's the problem. Half of the NFL fans get more involved in the publicity stuff and don't pay attention to actual stats, production, and what kind of impact a guy is having on his team. If he is talked about on ESPN a lot and is on shows like VH1, the average fan will think they're still a top guy. I've told numerous people who have argued on his behalf that he has only had one good season out of his last 4, yet they still think he is a realyl good WR.

Reporters don't need to work AJ and Fitz and frankly doing it won't help them. They are going to give milquetoast quotes so reporters get everything for free on highlight reels. Reporters can stroke the egos of guys like Chad and get them to become off-field copy, or in his case outside of the play clock at least.

OK. I'll admit that I was being probably a bit elitist here.

I don't consider the opinions of the average fan on the street to have any validity or any merit. Some person who catches a couple of games, talks through most of it without watching, and doesn't know any of the stats isn't someone I consider as worth worrying about.

When the talking heads on ESPN or NFLN start talking about top receivers, Chad hasn't been in that conversation in a long time. But some doofus calling in to air his thoughts on some talk-radio show? I don't care what that guy thinks.

My heart doesn't bleed for the good guys - they get the privacy they desire and deserve, and will fully utilize the gift they've been given in their football abilities.

Good point, I hadn't internalized it yet, but this is what is going on with me also. I think that is one reason I have become such a true fan of the Texans, not just because they are my home team, but because of what they represent. People here have scoffed at McNair and that he would only sign high character players. In today's world, it is wonderful to be able to root for a quality team - quality in more than one way.

I totally agree about the NBA.

You saved me some typing. AJ has the hearts of many Houston fans, he is loved here in a way that an Ocho Cinco or a TO will never be able to emulate.

CHAD JOHNSON HISTORY OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE (http://www.tmz.com/2012/08/14/chad-johnson-history-of-domestic-violence-guilty-conviction/)

Chad Johnson is no stranger to domestic violence -- TMZ has learned the former NFL star was secretly found guilty of battering a woman in 2000 ... 12 years before he allegedly struck again.

According to court records obtained by TMZ, Johnson was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery in L.A. on February 7, 2000 ... just before he began playing football for Oregon State University.

Sources close to the case tell us the victim was his GF at the time ... and she told police the football star had slapped her in the face after he accused her of cheating on him.

According to court records, Johnson -- 22 years old at the time -- pled no contest ... and the court found him guilty of domestic battery.

Johnson was sentenced to 3 years probation and ordered to serve 45 days in L.A. County Jail. But Johnson struck a deal with the court which allowed him to avoid jail ... as long as he completed 30 days of graffiti removal work with CalTrans. Johnson was also required to complete a 12 month batterer's counseling program and ordered to stay 100 yards away from the victim.

But Johnson didn't complete his probation requirements in a timely manner ... according to court records, he blew off the hard labor AND the dom. violence program for years...

Good point, I hadn't internalized it yet, but this is what is going on with me also. I think that is one reason I have become such a true fan of the Texans, not just because they are my home team, but because of what they represent. People here have scoffed at McNair and that he would only sign high character players. In today's world, it is wonderful to be able to root for a quality team - quality in more than one way.

I totally agree about the NBA.

{Quote=} One playoff season doesn't = winning football. Lets see McNairs team consistently win for 5-10 yrs before trumpeting what a great owner/person .... he is. To mee it's all about winning. I mean isn't that why people go to watch the games?



You saved me some typing. AJ has the hearts of many Houston fans, he is loved here in a way that an Ocho Cinco or a TO will never be able to emulate.

Totally agree with you on this.

Guys like AJ and Fitz end up with their bust in Canton, millions of dollars in the bank long after they retire, friends for life from their teams and cities that will forever regard them as heroes.

Guys like 'Ocho Cinco' and TO often end up broke, washed up and lonely 10 years after retirement.

My heart doesn't bleed for the good guys - they get the privacy they desire and deserve, and will fully utilize the gift they've been given in their football abilities. They'll continue getting their accolades years after people have forgotten about the bums who dominated the media during their playing careers.

Good perspective. But for me, it's not about being up in A.J.'s personal business. I don't want that and I don't need that.

It's about the 10 minutes of NFL Live yesterday that they spent talking about Chad Johnson. It's about the 15 minute segment on NFLN's All Access a couple of weeks ago they spent blabbing about this wastoid, devoting no time to actual Xs & Os and blathering about his antics, marriage, reality show, and TD dances. Warren Sapp lovingly said that Chad was 34 and ready to have the biggest year of his career in 2012.

It's these fluff sensationalized 'entertainment' pieces about Chad Johnson that irritates the crap out of me. It's undeserved, boring, non-football related TMZ-like tabloid press.

My son really got into American Ninja Warrior show this year. By the finals, they had one contestant that never finished even a preliminary course, but was chosen for the 100 person finals because of his....costumes. I kid you not, this guy was picked as a wildcard for his "flair", his goofy super-hero wannabe costumes. My son and I nicknamed him....Ocho Cinco. ;)

Not OchoStinko's first arrest for hitting women...

According to court records obtained by TMZ, Johnson was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery in L.A. on February 7, 2000 ... just before he began playing football for Oregon State University.

Sources close to the case tell us the victim was his GF at the time ... and she told police the football star had slapped her in the face after he accused her of cheating on him.

According to court records, Johnson -- 22 years old at the time -- pled no contest ... and the court found him guilty of domestic battery.

He was 22 just before he started playing for Oregon State?

edit: just did the math. From wiki

Johnson was born in Miami.1978 After graduating from Miami Beach Senior High School in 1997, Johnson attended Langston University but did not play football. In 1997 he transferred to Santa Monica College, a community college in Santa Monica, California, where he was a teammate of future Carolina Panthers star wide receiver Steve Smith. In 2000, he transferred to Oregon State University after being aggressively recruited by coach Dennis Erickson.

He played at a Community College prior to going to Oregon State (and only played on season there before entering the NFL draft). I'm also pretty sure he didn't play football at all his first year out of HS.

If you had 41 days in the “How long will Chad Johnson’s marriage last?” pool, congratulations.

According to the Associated Press, Evelyn Lozada filed for divorce on Tuesday from free-agent receiver Chad Johnson. They were married on July 4.

Lozada also issued a statement saying that Johnson “needs help.” She also said that Johnson lied to police when he claimed that Lozada head-butted him, not vice-versa...

I honestly didn't mind the clowing around on the field. Thats what guys do, but the unnecessary F-bombs he dropped bothered me. Right after I find out he was arrested I told a friend I wouldn't be surprised if he was released. To me he was being a little "extra", in trying to prove that he was back to the old Chad.

I just couldn't get with that press conference though. It was like he was trying too hard. Chad in Cincy was a silly fun loving guy. People didn't like some of his antics and I understood that, but I never remember him cursing like that there. It just gave me a bad vibe for a guy who was trying to revive his career.

I watched this. I don't feel bad for him losing his job. And I don't really think it's because he smacked his wife around. He is not a good WR anymore. It's as simple as that. He is still and ahole and a clown, but before he was a good WR. He's not anymore so there is no reason to put up with his antics and behavior. What really gets me is the morons on tv who say 'He's been brilliant at marketing himself.' Really? Had he just acted like an adult instead of a bufoon he'd probably be revered and gotten endorment deals. He is a childish clown. Correction - he is an unemployed childish clown.

I really would have liked it if our team would have tried to bring Ocho here, but after watching that show, the way he treated his teammates.... that competition he had going on with Springs, that wasn't healthy. The relationship should be mutually beneficial, each one trying to one up the other, to build each other up.

But to me, it looked like they were trying to tear each other down.

We don't need that here.

I disagree here. Neither one was saying anything derogatory to the other. Trash talking from the offense and defense goes on in every locker room and practice field. As long as its in a competitive nature then its nothing wrong with it. I bet you Smith is great friends with Chad and respects him for going hard at him. It happens at every level whether you're in high school, college, or in the pros. To think otherwise is silly to me. I guarantee you there's plenty yapping going on back and forth on the Texans practice field. These guys are competitors. It's what they do.

I don't mean the money that she'll get out of the marriage. I'm mainly talking about the money wasted on her. He bought her a 10 carat engagement ring, bought her a 100k car for her birthday, spent a lot of money on a remote location wedding, and probably showered her with all kinds of gifts. If he doesn't play this year, you could almost indirectly account for another 1 million lost because of his marriage. (I say almost because if he kept dropping passes then he would've been cut anyway).

I never thought about all of that considering how long or short he was married. Of course I don't follow his crazy attention whore wife on her tv shows or his. That's a ton of money to waste on some random marriage that was going to end that fast. With all that has been reported, you had to know that the marriage wasn't going to last that long. He is nuts.

Yeah, he's a fool for marrying this girl. But don't think for one second he didn't have dollar signs in his eyes when he looked at her too. He knew that marrying her could give him some Lamar Odom type of extra income coming his way. Reality shows pay pretty well and Chad knew that. All of that is for naught now though. Good thing for Chad that he doesn't drink and buy bottles in the club or that he's not known for making it rain in the strip joints.

Pretty darn good piece on why he is who he is from a Cinncinnati columnest:

Doc: Chad Johnson sunk by need for attention (http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20120815/COL03/120815030)

All he wanted was to be loved...

The Dolphins don’t love him. They released him. The NFL doesn’t love him: Too much baggage, without the promise of production. The reality is, VH1 doesn’t love him: So long, TV show. Perhaps his soon-to-be ex-wife still loves him. But not enough to extend their marriage past 41 days. Evelyn Lozada filed charges against Chad, then divorce papers.
...
Mike Brown and Marvin Lewis worry about Eighty-Five’s post-football life. He is impulsive, impetuous, short-sighted and immature. As Carson Palmer once said of his former mate, “Chad is a child.’’

I don’t know what he’s feeling now. A little like the 5-year-old in the Liberty City neighborhood of Miami, maybe, where his mother left him with her mother, and moved with Chad’s half-brother to a new life in Los Angeles ... Chad didn’t know his father at the time. The image of a 5-year-old on the corner, as his mother drives away, is a permanent scar.

The needy side of Chad was the face he showed the world. It was the Chad you saw for 10 seasons. Gold teeth, endzone dances, can’t-stop-me lists, dinners with fans, reality TV. The whole Chad catalog was a cry for attention. Notice Me isn’t much different from Love Me. He let it get away from him, though. What started as needy fun became full-blown obsession. Chad re-invented himself every time he felt the attention slipping.

Ultimately, it sunk him...
