Johnson and his wife (Evelyn Lozada) were at dinner and she confronted him about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms, said Davie police Capt. Dale Engle. The argument got heated and continued on the drive home – he said.
When they arrived in their driveway in Davie, the 34-year-old Johnson head-butted Lozada, she told police. Lozada, who is on the reality show, “Basketball Wives,” was treated at a hospital for a cut to her forehead, Engle said.
Johnson (who changed his last name back to Johnson from Ochocinco after his July 4 wedding to Lozada) was being held Saturday night in Broward County Jail where he will remain until he can appear before a judge, which Engle says might not be until Monday. He is charged with simple battery, domestic violence, which is a misdemeanor.
Johnson’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined to comment.

“We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all of the relevant information” – the Dolphins said in a statement.
Johnson remained in jail as of late Saturday night and won’t be eligible for release until a bail hearing is set, which could be as late as Monday.
This is the first time Johnson has been arrested during his 12-year NFL career. But according to the paper, he was arrested in college for a domestic dispute.
