Things have quickly gone from bad to worse for NFL player Chad Johnson.

Only a few hours after the footballer was arrested for a domestic dispute with his new wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, it was announced that Chad’s team, the Miami Dolphins, would be dropping him from the roster.  

“The Miami Dolphins have terminated the contract of WR Chad Johnson,” the team’s Twitter account stated.

The NFL star was taken into custody after he reportedly head-butted Evelyn in the midst of a heated argument, leaving her with a three-inch laceration on her forehead that required her to be hospitalized. 

“She alleges he leaned over and head-butted her. He says she leaned towards him and that they butted heads,” police captain Dale Engle said. “Needless to say she has a good laceration on her forehead.” 

Evelyn was released from the hospital early Sunday morning and is now reportedly staying with a few friends.
