DAVIE, Fla. — The Miami Dolphins terminated Chad Johnson’s contract about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife.
The six-time Pro Bowl receiver was released from jail on $2,500 bond earlier Sunday after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. Johnson was charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor.
The confrontation came barely a month after Johnson married Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show “Basketball Wives.” The 34-year-old Johnson had been battling for a spot on the team after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011.
Dolphins linebacker Karlos Dansby voiced his displeasure at Johnson’s release in an interview with a South Florida radio station Monday.
