The Chad Johnson Project for the Miami Dolphins may be over for the team and for the lavish wide receiver if a report hitting social media is correct.

According to the Sun Sentinel, they are reporting that Johnson was arrested on a charge of domestic abuse tonight.  The incident is being confirmed by Capt. Dale Engle of the Davie Police Department.  Davie is located just north of Miami.

The incident allegedly occurred in a vehicle with Johnson allegedly headbutting his wife,  Evelyn Lazado, during the course of an argument.  When police arrived she was said to have lacerations on her forehead.

The couple married on July 4th of this year and she was featured along with Johnson on the premiere episode of the HBO series “Hard Knocks” which is featuring the Miami Dolphins this year.

Johnson was scolded by his head coach Joe Philbin after he let loose with a profanity laced media session where when asked if he wasn’t playing football what he would do.  He answered, “Porn”.

The Dolphins took a risk signing the prolific, outspoken receiver and the investment doesn’t seem to be paying off.  Of course HBO is probably feels it will since now everyone will be tuning in on future episodes to see what happens.
