Miami Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson has been arrested on domestic violence charges in Davie, Florida.

Davie police Capt. Dale Engle says Johnson and his wife were at dinner Saturday and she confronted him about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms. His wife, Evelyn Lozada, is on the reality show, Basketball Wives, and the couple married July 4.

Engle says when they arrived at their driveway, Lozada says Johnson head-butted her. She was treated at a hospital for a forehead cut. (Jarrett Bell column)

Engle told the NFL Network that Johnson claimed they accidentally bumped heads during the argument.

Engle says Johnson is in the Broward County Jail where he will remain until he can appear before a judge, which Engle says might not be until Monday.

Johnson's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, declined to comment.

Johnson has been in the news a lot recently. The veteran receiver recently changed his name back from Ochocinco to Johnson, signed with the Dolphins after being released by the New England Patriots and immediately became the star in the debut of this season's Hard Knocks series on HBO.

While Johnson's football future isn't the foremost concern, the team and the league have a bad situation at hand, considering New York Giants QB Eli Manning represents the NFL in the White House's 1 is 2 Many campaign to end violence against women.

So what do you think, should the Dolphins immediately part company with Johnson or let the legal process play out?
