Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson Released From Dolphins Following Domestic Violence Arrest

We were so looking forward to the Ochocinco era of the Miami Dolphins, but it appears to be over before it even began.

Chad Johnson (formerly Chad Ochocinco) has reportedly been cut from the team following an arrest last night after allegedly head-butting his wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada.

Johnson and Lozada married just this past July 4, but according to the New York Daily News, Lozada confronted Johnson after finding a receipt for condoms in his car while the newlyweds were driving home from dinner. As the two were pulling into Johnson's driveway in Davie, he allegedly head-butted her.

The assault left a laceration on Lozada's face, and she was taken to the hospital for treatment. She reportedly ran to a neighbor's house following the incident.

Johnson told the responding police officer that the incident was Lozada's fault.

"I don't give a fuck!" Johnson yelled after the incident, according to the police report. "I don't give a fuck about my career!"

Of course, now the future of that career is in question as multiple sources are reporting that Johnson has been cut from the Dolphins.

A Miami native, Johnson was signed to the Dolphins this past off-season and sat atop the team's wide receiver depth chart.

Johnson was released on bail this morning. It's his first arrest in his 12-year NFL career. In college, Johnson was arrested following a domestic dispute.

Neither Johnson, Lozada, nor the Dolphins organization has publicly commented yet.

I'm not a fan of his wife, but I find it pretty sad that no one had really commented that he allegedly abused her. It's no wonder people think so little of Miami. The outrage over Vick and dogs, but another human and these are the comments I read. Sorry, although she may have made a poor decision to trust this man, he's obviously not stable and she deserves some compassion. Sometimes life isn't funny.

And today in sports, a black man somewhere ran with a ball and jumped with a ball and threw a ball and people got really excited as if they hadn't seen it a million times before... ...Next, we'll pretend like we can predict the weather..

I think the fact that he "predicted" his arrest on Hard Knocks has something to do with the Coach's decision. Publicity stunt gone awry. LOL.

I dont know why this has anything to do with whether he has a job or not.... I think it was a mistake. Bet if he didnt drop that ball on Friday he wouldn't have gotten released...

If you have HBO...watch Hard Knocks. We should see the logic behind his dismissal. Somebody in need of WR will pick him up tomorrow AND they will be back together IF they truly love each other. Peace

Alex, I do believe that's what she said. You CAN fire someone WITHOUT reason.

Hey bozos - this guy was having a terrible training camp and wasn't popular with the ownership from day 1. He was probably going to be axed even despite this incident. The latest was just the icing on the cake.

"'I don't give a fuck!' Johnson yelled after the incident, according to the police report. 'I don't give a fuck about my career!'' Doesn't seem like it'll matter much to him, Fred.

This is disgusting!! This was a stupid decision on behalf of the organization. At the moment, these allegations have not been proven in a court of law. In America, we do have a system in which you are supposed and presumed to be innocent until each and every element of the crime has been succumb beyond and to the exclusion of a reasonable doubt. It was a rush to judgment based on public clamor. I hope he files a lawsuit against the Dolphins if he is to prevail in a court of law, not court of public opinion.

Good! the Dolphins don;t need anymore drama, nor bad publicity stunts... Besides, who does he think he is to head bunt his wife?? DONE! And i;m sure its in his contract.... LOL

 @sharptonrapesblacks No, Kim Kardashian doesn't date violent men. Stop being mad over what you can't get and worry about your own life loser.

 @drakemallard The number of sex partners Kim had is really no different than the typical American female. You have to be gulible or delusional to believe otherwise. The only difference is the media report everything kim does.
