The Broward County District Attorney's Office has issued an arrest warrant for former Miami Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson, TMZ is reporting.
The warrant is tied to Johnson's domestic violence conviction for his August 2012 arrest for head-butting then wife Evelyn Lozada.
Johnson apparently failed to report to his probation officer and, as a result, a judge issued an arrest warrant on May 7.
According to the Broward County District Attorney's Office, Johnson will have to appear in a hearing where it'll be determined if he did, in fact, violate probation, which could mean time behind bars.
According to the arrest report from August of 2012, Johnson and his wife had arrived to their Davie home from grocery shopping. As Lozada was taking the groceries into the house, she spotted a condom receipt in the trunk of the car. She and Johnson then sat in their Smart Car and discussed their marriage, because there's no better place to have a heated discussion about possible infidelities than inside an insanely cramped vehicle.
It was at this point that things got crazy.
Johnson became upset during the argument and allegedly grabbed Lozada. The report says Johnson hit her with his cranium, causing a three-inch laceration on her head.
Chad then began screaming, "I don't give a fuck about my career!"
