Chad Ochocinco Johnson was cut from his NFL team, the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, shortly after he was released from jail.
The Dolphins terminated the six-time Pro Bowl receiver’s contract about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife.
Johnson was released from jail on $2,500 bond earlier Sunday after his wife, Evelyn Lozada, accused him of head-butting her during an argument outside of their home. Johnson spent the night in jail and was charged with simple domestic battery, a misdemeanor. His wife spent the night in the hospital.
Following Sunday’s practice, coach Joe Philbin said he would meet soon with Johnson.
“We’re going to deal with this,” Philbin said before Johnson was released. “We’re not going to waste time. … We’re all in this thing together. Everybody that sets foot in this building, we’re all held to a high standard.”
Wow, they delt with it and fast, talk about a bad weekend!!
