FORT LAUDERDALE -- Six-time Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson has been formally charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.

The Broward State Attorney's Office filed the charge Wednesday. Johnson faces up to a year in county jail.

Johnson was arrested last month after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. He was freed on $2,500 bond.

The confrontation came barely a month after Johnson married Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show Basketball Wives. Johnson, 34, had been battling for a spot on the Miami Dolphins after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011.

The Dolphins released Johnson one day after his arrest.

Johnson is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning and to file a written plea of not guilty.
