DAVIE, Fla. — Miami Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson has been released from a Florida jail on $2,500 bond, a day after he had been charged with domestic violence after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument.
Jail officials say the 34-year-old Johnson was released Sunday afternoon. Johnson’s defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says Johnson posted the bond Sunday morning. Swickle says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada.
Such orders are common in domestic violence cases.
Swickle declined to comment further. (more…)
