Former Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson is going through a rough patch in his life. After being charged with misdemeanor domestic battery, ordered not to contact his newlywed wife, Johnson was released by the Miami Dolphins and his upcoming VH1 reality television show titled "Ev and Ocho" was canceled.

"Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series 'Ev and Ocho' from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it."

UPDATE: Evelyn Lozada has issued a public statement on the incident, claiming that Johnson needs to "take responsibility" for the situation. Via The Huffington Post:

“It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday," the reality star wrote 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," she wrote.

However, this isn't the first time that Johnson has been charged with domestic violence. According to TMZ, Johnson was "secretly found guilty of battering a woman in 2000."

According to court records obtained by TMZ, Johnson was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery in L.A. on February 7, 2000 ... just before he began playing football for Oregon State University. Sources close to the case tell us the victim was his (girlfriend) at the time ... and she told police the football star had slapped her in the face after he accused her of cheating on him.

Also on Tuesday the 911 call was released from the incident this weekend, which was placed by the neighbor, obviously looking for absolute discretion.
