Additional details have surfaced about the domestic violence case between NFL star Chad Johnson and his wife, Evelyn Lozada.
Just days after the former Dolphins receiver was arrested for physically abusing Lozada during a heated argument, the 911 call made on behalf of Johnson’s wife has been released.
In the audio of the 911 call released by Davie police Monday night, Evelyn’s neighbor asks that police and paramedics be sent to the scene and the media not be told of the incident.
“We don’t need the news here,” the caller tells the dispatcher.
Throughout the four minute phone call, Lozada’s voice is barely audible as she answers questions relaid by her neighbor, who continuously whispers throughout the call to soothe her.
Lozada’s injuries were assessed during the call as her neighbor stated, “She’s got a cut on her forehead, she’s probably going to need stitches because he [Johnson] hit her.”
Meanwhile, Lozada, who was treated at a Miami hospital and discharged on Monday, has also released a statement to the press, addressing Johnson’s claims that she actually head-butted him.
“It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday,” Lozada said in an email via her publicist.
“I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time.”
