You’ve got to give it to Chad Johnson on remaining true to his word. On the season premiere episode of HBO’s ‘Hard Knocks: Miami Dolphins’ the 34-year-old wide receiver vowed to director of security for the Miami Dolphins Stu Weinstein that he would be arrested.
“Stu, I promise I’m getting arrested when we’re off,” Johnson jokingly said on camera. Weinstein responded to Johnson’s claims by saying, “Call me I’ll come get you.”
I told you not to trust people whose teeth were whiter than their eyeballs.
Johnson was arrested after police found wife Evelyn Lozada with lacerations on her forehead. She told police that she confronted her husband after finding a receipt for condoms in their car, which turned into a heated argument. She later fled to a neighbor’s house, where she called 911.

Johnson claims that he “accidentally” bumped her head with his and was released Sunday after spending the night in a Florida jail.
That same day, the Miami Dolphins posted a notification on their website saying “The Miami Dolphins terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson, the team announced today.”
Following his domestic abuse arrest and subsequent release, VH1 has decided to pull the plug on ‘Ev and Ocho.’
Says the network, “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.”
The ‘Basketball Wives’ spin-off series was scheduled to premiere on September 3rd.
