So, it seems as though the honeymoon was short lived for Chad Johnson and Evelyn Lozada. Reports state that the couple got into an altercation Saturday night at their home in Davie, FL. Chad was arrested for allegedly head butting Evelyn who suffered lacerations on her forehead. Yikes!!
According to the Davie Police Department, the argument started when Evelyn confronted Chad with a receipt showing that a box of condoms was purchased.
The SunSentinel released a statement from Dale Engle, a Davie Police Department rep states:
Johnson and his wife went to a restaurant for dinner. They returned home and she found a receipt for a box of condoms, Engle said.
An argument ensued, Engle said.
“It gets pretty heated,” Engle said. “By the time they get home here in Davie it’s pretty heated. She alleges he leaned over and head butted her. He says she leaned towards him and that they butted heads. Needless to say she has a good laceration on her forehead.”
When cops came on the scene Lozada, a star in VH1′s Basketball Wives reality series, had lacerations on her forehead, and Johnson was arrested.
Johnson remained in jail as of late Saturday night, and was likely to be transferred to Broward County Sheriff before midnight. The spokesman said Johnson would not be released until he appears in front of a judge, which could be as late as Monday morning.
Here’s his mugshot:
Updated reports state that Evelyn was released from the hospital and Chad from jail, but he was ordered to stay away from Evelyn.
SMH. Domestic violence is never ok. I hope things can get settled peacefully.
