Chad Johnson Arrested In Florida

Former NFL player Chad Johnson was arrested in Florida on Monday morning.

Johnson was arrested after a judge in Broward County determined that he violated his probation stemming from a 2012 domestic violence bust.

A warrant was issued for Chad Johnson earlier in the month after he failed to report to his probation officer on two separate occasions. Johnson also failed to show proof of enrollment in a required domestic violence education class.

Johnson failed to report to his probation officer on February 15 and March 15 and failed to show that he completed the court ordered Batterers Intervention Program.

Johnson was serving out his probation following a domestic violence conviction that involved ex-wife Evelyn Lozada. The six-time Pro Bowl player known as Chad Ochocinco was serving one-year probation in the case. Johnson and Evelyn wed on July 4, 2012 but filed for divorce in August.

Bail has not yet been set but is expected momentarily.

Chad Johnson turned himself into police and was arrested a short time later. It is still unclear why Johnson waited so long following the issuance of the arrest warrant to turn himself over to authorities.

Johnson has not responded to the new charges or arrest.

More information to follow as official police reports are made available.

Do you think Chad Johnson will be given a slap on the wrist and sent on his way or actually spend time behind bars for his failure to appear?
