Johnson was arrested after police arrived on the scene and found VH1′s Evelyn Lozada with lacerations on her forehead. He told police the two of them had accidentally bumped heads.
According to police, Lozada confronted her husband after finding a receipt for condoms, which started a “heated argument.”
Johnson is also a star on the HBO reality series “Hard Knocks,” which is focusing on the Dolphins’ training camp this season. In this past week’s opening episode, he said Lozada wouldn’t have sex with him during his dismal year with the New England Patriots last season, but that he knew he was in love with her because she’s the only one who can cause him to pause the video game “Call of Duty.”
Johnson and Lozada were married in July. Soon after, he legally changed his last name from Ochocinco back to Johnson, saying his wife insisted that he do so.
The six-time Pro Bowl selection will remain in custody until a bail hearing is set, which might not be until Monday, said captain Dale Engle of the Davie (Fla.) Police Department.
