Domestic Violence Continues to Plague the NFL

Posted by Richard DeMichele | Aug 13, 2012 | 0 Comments

Chad Johnson Cut After Domestic Violence Charge

On Friday we commented on NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell's plans to combat DUI and Domestic Violence in the NFL.  The report lacked specifics of his plan but did indicate he was in talks with the NFL players union. For the doubters of the extent of the problem, it only took one day from when we posted our commentary for the next high profile NFL star to be arrested for domestic violence. Miami Dolphins wide receiver, Chad Johnson, was arrested on Saturday for allegedly head-butting his wife, Evelyn Lozada.  According to a report in the Daily News the incident stemmed from an argument over a receipt for a box of condoms Lozada found in Johnson's car.  Johnson was arrested and released on $2,500 bond and ordered not to have any contact with his wife.  But Johnson's problems do not end there.  On Sunday, the Miami Hearld reported  that Johnson was cut from the team just hours after he walked out of the Broward County jail. Whether the allegations are true is a question for another day.  What is clear; Johnson lost his job as a result of an allegation of domestic violence. Check back for updates on the Chad Johnson matter and the NFL's response.
