Chad Johnson released by Dolphins after arrest, according to report

Uncategorized

The Miami Dolphins have released wide receiver Chad Johnson a day after the wide receiver was arrested and charged with a misdemeanor domestic battery, Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported on Twitter.

Johnson posted $2,500 bond Sunday and was released from jail after his wife, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. The dispute simmered after Lozada found a receipt for a box of condoms, The Associated Press reported.

Earlier Sunday, Philbin said he hadn’t yet spoken or met with Johnson.

“We’re going to deal with this at the appropriate time,” Philbin said. “We’re not going to waste time. … We’re all in this thing together. Everybody that sets foot in this building, we’re all held to a high standard.”

Philbin had warned Johnson a couple of days earlier about his behavior after Johnson liberally used profanity during an interview opportunity with reporters.

The Dolphins signed Johnson in June. He was trying to make the team after a highly disappointing season with the New England Patriots last year.

Wow, dude shows maturity and common sense by buying condoms and he gets bitched at.

And how thoughtful of Miami to let the legal process take more than one step before dumping him.  Then again, it's Chad Johnson, so who cares.

 @EugeneSaxe it was OBVIOUSLY a box of condoms she never saw and therefore she assumed he was cheating on her. you're a slow individual who can't read between the lines in even the simplest of scenarios. enjoy going through life with an IQ of 50 bro.
