Davie, FL (Sports Network) - Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was released from Broward County jail on Sunday, one day after his arrest on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.
Johnson spent the night in jail after allegedly head-butting his wife during an argument. He posted $2,500 bond following a court hearing Sunday morning and was also ordered to stay away from his wife, Evelyn Lozada.
According to the Davie police report, Johnson and Lozada were arguing in a vehicle. The argument apparently started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the car.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel said Lozada was taken to a hospital for a laceration to the forehead and was released late Saturday night.
This is the first arrest for Johnson during his 12-year NFL career. He was arrested in college for a domestic dispute.
The Dolphins, late Saturday night, issued a statement and said they were "in the process of gathering all the relevant information."
Johnson, who recently changed his name from Ochocinco, signed with Dolphins this offseason after spending last season with the New England Patriots.
The 34-year-old veteran played his first 10 seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals and has 766 career catches for 11,059 yards and 67 touchdowns.
