The drama-filled antics of Chad Johnson (sometimes Chad Ochocinco) and his wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada, are normally newsy and entertaining — but this weekend, they took a shocking and violent turn, as reports have surfaced that Chad was arrested after violently assaulting Evelyn and leaving her so traumatized that she ran to a neighbor's house on foot. 

Although the story is still developing, initial reports have Chad being arrested for domestic violence late last night after an altercation with Evelyn: Allegedly, she found a receipt for condoms in their family car (a Maserati, natch), but the verbal argument got physical when Chad reportedly head-butted Evelyn, leaving her with a three-inch laceration on her forehead that required her to be hospitalized. (Chad told police that he butted heads with his wife by accident.) Evelyn ended up running to a neighbor's house, and Chad was arrested and booked on domestic violence charges with a $2500 bond. He was released at about 10AM this morning.

As he existed the jail, he did not answer questions for reporters.

We'll keep you updated as the story develops.
