It's been a hell of a legal week for former NFL player Chad Johnson. Earlier this week, his divorce from reality TV star Evelyn Lozada became official, and this morning he struck a plea deal on charges that he head-butted her. Johnson has been sentenced to a year of probation and has been ordered to take anger management classes.

Johnson was arrested last month after Lozada reportedly found a receipt for a box of condoms in his car. The two got in an argument over the discovery, and Johnson head-butted her. Lozada took refuge at a neighbor's house and called police. Johnson was arrested on misdemeanor charges of domestic battery. Shortly after, Johnson was released from the Miami Dolphins.

Lozada was treated for her injuries at a nearby hospital.

Now, according to NBC Miami, Johnson plead no contest to the charges in Broward County Court this morning. He'll receive one-year probation and anger management classes. His probation could be reduced because he's in counseling. He will also owe Lozada an unspecified amount of money in restitution.
