Chad Johnson has been arrested and jailed for domestic violence, TMZ reports. The NFL player and star of reality show Ev and Ocho was released on $2500 bond Sunday morning.

The incident, which occured on Saturday night in Florida, allegedly involved Evelyn Lozada, Johnson's wife of only five weeks. Law enforcement sources claim Johnson head-butted Lozada during an argument and left Lozada with a 3" laceration on her head. She was taken to the hospital, where she remained for several hours.

According to TMZ's sources, the argument between the newly married couple began when Basketball Wives star Lozada found a reciept for condoms in Johnson's car. The verbal fight quickly turned physical, though Johnson claims the head-butt was on accident. He later told officers it was Lozada who head-butted him, repeatedly screaming "F*** it!" and then "fled on foot to a neighbor's house to get away from Johnson."

 

Johnson will likely go before a Broward County judge on Monday.
