FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP/CBS) — Former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson has been arrested for a probation violation stemming from an altercation with his now ex-wife, TV reality star Evelyn Lozada.

Broadcast reports say a Broward County judge ordered Johnson jailed until he posts a $1,000 bond. Another hearing was set for June 3.

An arrest warrant was issued earlier this month when Johnson failed to meet his probation officer.

The six-time Pro Bowl player formerly known as Chad Ochocinco is serving a year’s probation for head-butting Lozada during an argument last August. She quickly filed for divorce. They had only been married since July 4.

Johnson was released by the Miami Dolphins following the incident. He spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the Cincinnati Bengals before joining the New England Patriots for the 2011 season. He had just 15 receptions for one touchdown and 276 yards that season and was released in the off-season.

Lozada is on the TV Show “Basketball Wives.”
