NFL star Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night for domestic violence … allegedly against new wife Evelyn Lozada, one of the stars of VH1’s “Basketball Wives.”
Law enforcement sources tell us Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument, and when cops arrived to the scene, Lozada had lacerations on her forehead.
Our sources say Lozada has been at the hospital for several hours.
According to our sources, the fight started when Lozada found a receipt for condoms in the center of the couple’s Maserati and confronted Johnson about it. A verbal argument ensued.
We’re told at some point during the argument, Johnson head-butted Lozada. According to reports, Johnson told police he butted heads with Lozada by accident.
Johnson is reportedly still in custody and wil have to go before a judge before he can be released.
Johnson and Lozada were married last month after Johnson proposed in November 2010 with a massive 10-carat diamond ring.
8:45PM PT Johnson is still at the Davie, FL police station, but will eventually be transferred to a county jail facility. Authorities tell us he will remain in custody tonight, and since there are no bond judges scheduled to work Sunday … it’s entirely possible Chad will be cooling off behind bars until Monday morning.

I knew it..
Wow! This whole situation is a mess. You never know what someone will do in the heat of the moment (and with her reputation, I highly doubt this assault was one sided). I know Eve is kicking herself now for ending a 10 plus year friendship with someone who’s only hope was to stress the importance of being cautious with men like Chad that seek attention. While I do feel sorry for her as a woman, I am a firm believer in karma. And it comes in many forms and fashions. Evelyn has a reputation for getting physical with people even to the extreme of even throwing a bottle. It was only a matter of time before she got bit in the ass.
I totaly agree with DOLLFACEGG, Evelyn let it be known to Jen in front of millions of ppl that she shouldn’t put up with the cheating, turmoil and abuse from her ex husband, now she is in the same boat less than 45 days into a new marriage, karma is a bitch and I can’t wait to see how this plays out! I know it won’t be on basketball wives next season or Chad and Ev’s reality show because while they want everyone elses dirt to come out the closet for ratings, this will be made to not look like a big deal after their publicists speak out. No woman should EVER put up with abuse but Chads ways on the reality show was getting on my nerves, to each it’s own but I wonder if this was the only time something like this has came up in their relationship and maybe this was the final straw?? Hey Kim K threw in the towel in 72 days, maybe Ev will top her?? You can be fabulous without a man on your arm, she needs to work on cleaning up her image and not trying to find a husband so bad that you make a fool out of yourself in the process!!!…. hmm… I wonder what Tammy, her assistant and all the other bullies on the show are saying now, prob sitting around laughing their asses off, they love drama!!!!!
i could have sworn she was ok with being in an open relationship with him from that one episode.. or that she knew he was going to cheat or bring another woman home…
SORRY EVELYN,BUT KARMA IS A BITCH. YOU GET WHAT YOU GIVE.
He’s a “Rat” what else would you expect from a rat with “Baby Mama” and “Low Self Esteem Issues” ???? Right Steebie J. i mean Ocho or whatever your name is…..
Eve is a golddigger and thats what she gets.
Right, although, I am in agreeing that Evelyn is a crude, selfish B, no one should touch eachother because they are “angry”. Let this be a lesson to Evelyn, what you give is what you get! Ocho is just a sorry excuse for a human-being, I just don’t like his character, period. This is my personal opinion on this matter. DV is always wrong, But, something inside tells me that all the people Evelyn treated so inhumane are somewhat smiling deep, deep inside.
She was stupid for marrying him anyway. He already said that if football didn’t work out, he was going into porn because he needed to make a living, somehow. There are going to be some real ashy balls on the screen. He’s probably been cheatin’ since they’ve been together. Evelyn is rock-dumb. Girl, everythang that look good to ya, ain’t good fa ya! Now who’s the Non-Mutha F’ing Factor!!!!!!
