A while back we learned that Evelyn Lozada of VH1‘s Basketball Wives was involved in a domestic disturbance with her husband, Chad Johnson. Chad was accused of headbutting Evelyn after an argument broke out between the newlyweds when Evelyn found a receipt for condoms in Chad‘s car. Yes. True Story. Chad was fired from the Miami Dolphins and Evelyn went on to do a few interviews about the altercation. She also filed for divorce, although Chad has refused to sign the documents. Now we learn that Chad Johnson has officially been charged with battery for his actions against Evelyn. Deets inside.
TMZ has the report:
Chad Johnson has officially been charged with misdemeanor battery after allegedly headbutting his wife Evelyn Lozada during a nuclear argument last month, this according to the State Attorney for Broward County, Florida.
If convicted, Chad faces up to a year in jail.
As we reported, Chad was arrested for domestic violence in Florida on August 11th after a fight over a condom receipt allegedly turned violent. Evelyn told police Chad headbutted her.
At the time of the fight, Evelyn and Chad had barely been married a month. Evelyn has since filed for divorce, claiming their marriage had become “irretrievably broken.”
Chad is refusing to sign any divorce papers, insisting he’s still in love with her.
