(CBS/AP) FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A warrant has been issued for the arrest of former NFL wide receiver Chad Johnson in South Florida.
The state attorney's office confirmed Thursday that a Broward circuit judge issued a warrant May 7 against Johnson for failing to report to his probation officer.
Johnson received a year of probation last September after pleading no contest to a domestic violence charge involving his former wife, reality TV personality Evelyn Lozada.
The six-time Pro Bowl player was arrested in August after Lozada said he head-butted her during an argument. She quickly filed for divorce, which was finalized days before his conviction. They had only been married since July 4 of the same year.
Johnson was cut by the Miami Dolphins shortly after the incident. He previously played for the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.
