Chad Johnson is having to face the consequences of his actions following a recent domestic violence incident involving his wife Evelyn Lozada.
Johnson is accused of headbutting Lozada inside of his “black smart” car in the driveway in front of their house Saturday. The headbutt left a three-inch laceration to Lozado’s forehead.
Johnson was arrested and after spending the night in jail was ordered by the judge in the case to have no contact with his wife. Lozada told police she would like to file formal charges against Johnson.
Chad was also dropped by the Miami Dolphins from their football team the same day he got out of jail because of the incident.
Today TMZ is reporting that VH1 is cancelling Johnson’s reality show in the wake of his domestic violence arrest.
The ”Ev and Ocho” was a spinoff of “Basketball Wives” and was scheduled to air September 3rd. It now appears the show will never see the light of day.
“Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series ‘Ev and Ocho’ from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it,” a VH1 rep told TMZ.
According to ESPN.com, if convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, Johnson would face a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. He could also receive community service, probation or be ordered to take anger-management classes.
