Chad Johnson In Custody, Claims It’s A “Misunderstanding”

Chad Johnson, the former NFL star who found himself without a job when he was released from the Miami Dolphins last summer, was arrested early this morning on a probation violation.

Johnson is on probation after a domestic violence dispute with his ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, and has been placed in jail on $1,000 bond. Prosecutors are asking that he spend a minimum of 60 days in jail after he failed to report to his probation officer. However, Johnson says it was all just a misunderstanding and a lack of communication between him and his attorney is to blame.

“I didn’t do anything on purpose,” Johnson said. “I wouldn’t blatantly not show up.”

The judge didn’t buy his story, though, and says he doesn’t think Johnson is taking his sentence seriously. A new hearing will take place on June 3.

    Who didn’t see this coming? What is surprising it that it took this long for him to do something “worthy” of being locked up.

    And kudos to the Judge for not buying the “miscommunication” excuse!

    I’m sure he’ll get alot of head butting (bj’s) in jail (which will be just a misunderstanding by others) by some of the other inmates who are jealous of him, his fame and wealth. But then again? The some of the Bros will probably call him daddy / honey and give him a big “B” job to make him feel at home and one of them and I am sure one will want him as their wife.Money and talent doesn’t necessarily make one smart.
    Hitting a women. Makes this guy nothing but a punk.

    I don’t think he’s a bad guy. He just got mixed up with the wrong person and is now paying for it. Chad has done a lot with charities and has helped many children and other causes. I feel for him and hope he gets over this with dignity.
