Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson Arrested After Violating Probation

Chad Johnson isn’t having a very good week. Earlier this week it was reported that he is begging the courts to reduce his child support obligations down from the current $5,420 a month now that he “finds himself without a contract and without a team.”

To make matters worse, he just got arrested. According to TMZ:

Chad Johnson was just arrested in Florida — after a Broward County judge determined the ex-NFL star violated his probation stemming from his 2012 domestic violence bust … TMZ has learned.

We broke the story … a warrant had been issued for Johnson’s arrest earlier this month after he failed to report to his probation officer on 2 occasions AND failed to show proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class.

Johnson’s probation stemmed from his domestic violence conviction involving ex-wife Evelyn Lozada last year.

35-year-old Johnson appeared in a Broward County courtroom over his alleged probation violation — and moments ago, the judge determined Chad WAS in violation and ordered him to be arrested and jailed.

TMZ has obtained Johnson’s booking sheet — he’s listed as 6’4″ 190 pounds.

Hopefully he gets it together….
