DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson was released from jail today on $2,500 bond, a day after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their Florida home.
Johnson, 34, had been charged with domestic violence. Broward County jail officials said he was released this afternoon.
Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, said a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show "Basketball Wives."
Such orders are common in domestic violence cases.
Swickle declined to comment further.
Police say Johnson was arrested Saturday. Davie police Capt. Dale Engle said the argument started when Lozada confronted Johnson about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms.
