Former NFL player Chad ‘Ochocinco’ Johnson is facing up to a year behind bars, if he’s convicted of that infamous headbutt incident surrounding Evelyn Lozada, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports. The alleged incident took place on Aug. 11, and Johnson was arrested the same day. According to accounts of the event, the couple began arguing when Lozada found a receipt for a box of condoms. Lozada was treated for a laceration on the scene and then transported to a local hospital.
Johnson is scheduled for arraignment on Thursday morning, and is expected to enter a written plea of not guilty rather than physically appear in court, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Here’s what Ochocinco had to say about the situation:
“I am going to let the legal process run its course. I wish Evelyn nothing but the best, I have no negative words to say about her, the only thing I can say is I love her very much.
