Former Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested in Broward County, Fla. after he failed to report for probation twice and failed to prove he is enrolled in a domestic violence education class, according to TMZ.
Johnson was arrested prior to the 2012 season after allegedly headbutting his now ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada. He was placed on probation after pleading no contest to domestic battery. He was also released from the Dolphins after the arrest. After missing a meeting with his probation officer, a warrant was issued for his arrest.
According to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal, Johnson turned himself in to authorities in Broward County and he was arrested. TMZ is also reporting that a judge had Johnson jailed after finding he did violated terms of his probation.
Johnson still leads the Bengals in career receiving yards and receiving touchdowns. He was traded before the 2011 season to the New England Patriots in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2012 and a sixth-round pick in 2013.
