Chad Ochocinco is still in jail for allegedly head-butting his new bride, Evelyn Lozada, and is being held on $2,500 bond. The football star reportedly screamed “I don’t give a f-ck about my career!” before being taken into custody for domestic violence.
Ochocinco was booked into Florida’s Broward County Jail, and faced a judge early Sunday (Aug. 12). The 34-year-old is not allowed to have contact with his wife, whom he is said to have attacked following a verbal altercation. According to his lawyer, Adam Swickle, the no contact order is common practice in domestic violence cases.
The couple tied the knot last month, but ran into trouble when Lozada found a receipt for condoms, and confronted him about it Saturday (Aug. 11). She reportedly ran to a neighbor’s house and called police, when the incident turned physical.
While neither party has spoken out about the situation, Ochocinco’s team, the Miami Dolphins, released a statement on his arrest. “We are aware of the situation and are in the process of gathering all the relevant information,” said the statement.
The Dolphins have practice this afternoon, but Ochocinco is not expected to be out of jail in time.
Lozada and Ochocinco met on Twitter, and landed their own VH1 reality show chronicling their relationship and wedding, which is expected to premiere in a few weeks.
Ochocinco claims that he head-butted Lozada by accident.
