Chad Johnson, the former NFL star who found himself without a job when he was released from the Miami Dolphins last summer, was arrested early this morning on a probation violation.
Johnson is on probation after a domestic violence dispute with his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, and has been placed in jail on $1,000 bond. Prosecutors are asking that he spend a minimum of 60 days in jail after he failed to report to his probation officer. However, Johnson says it was all just a misunderstanding and a lack of communication between him and his attorney is to blame.
“I didn’t do anything on purpose,” Johnson said. “I wouldn’t blatantly not show up.”
The judge didn’t buy his story, though, and says he doesn’t think Johnson is taking his sentence seriously. A new hearing will take place on June 3.
