Chad Johnson Arrest: Team Statement Issued

Miami Dolphins wide receiver was arrested tonight for allegedly head butting his wife.

Earlier tonight, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested for domestic violence. Johnson allegedly head butted his wife during an argument after a condom receipt was found in her car. Evelyn Lozada, Johnson's wife, was treated for a laceration on her forehead on site, before being transported to a hospital.

Johnson and Evelyn were married on July 4.

The Dolphins released a statement earlier tonight via the team's Twitter page:

"We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all the relevent information."

Johnson started Friday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but was only targeted one time, dropping it and killing an early drive by quarterback Matt Moore.

This is the first time Johnson has been arrested since entering the league twelve seasons ago, though he was arrested in college for a domestic dispute incident.
