Davie Police tonight released a recording of the 911 call placed by a neighbor of former Miami Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson to report that Johnson allegedly head-butted his wife of six weeks Saturday night.
Johnson, 34, allegedly hit reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, whom he married on July 4, during an argument over her discovery of a receipt for condoms.
And the neighbor who alerted authorities seemed concerned about Johnson coming to his house to look for Lozada.
The caller never identified Lozada or Johnson, the wide receiver formerly known as Ochocinco, but asked the 911 operator to “keep it quiet” because the victim’s husband is a “high profile person.”
The neighbor did say Lozada suffered a cut to her forehead and would probably need stitches.
Moments later, police arrested Johnson. He remained in jail through Sunday afternoon then, as Gossip Extra reported, was cut by the Dolphins.
