Chad Johnson is pushing his luck. He certainly didn't deserve the second (and likely final chance) he got when he signed with the Miami Dolphins this offseason after a 15-catch season with the New England Patriots one year ago. So what does he do? He allegedly head-butted his new wife, Evelyn Lozada, after an argument in their car coming home from dinner, a blow that was bad enough to draw blood and send her to the hospital, via TMZ.
Lozada apparently had to flee from Johnson to a neighbor's house after an argument (allegedly about condoms) got out of hand, according to TMZ.
According to the report, after Johnson allegedly head-butted Lozada during an argument about a receipt for condoms, Johnson began screaming at Lozada, saying, "I don't give a f**k! I don't give a f**k about my career!" According to the report, Lozada "fled on foot to a neighbor's house to get away from Johnson."
Simply put, this is inexcusable and abhorrent.
Like it or not, Johnson is a public figure that holds a position of influence (I really, really hope kids aren't looking up to this guy). For him to do something like this is shameful. At the very least, Johnson should be benched by the Dolphins, but it would be even better if they cut him loose all together. Furthermore, he should face a suspension from the league, and a long one at this. Playing football professionally is a privilege, and Johnson certainly isn't representing the league well with his actions.
