Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson has been arrested again — this time he’s accused of violating his probation.
The troubled former NFL player was taken in by Broward County Sheriff’s deputies on Monday when he appeared for a court hearing in Ft. Lauderale, Florida.
An arrest warrant was issued because Chad failed to fulfill these elements of his probation:
- He didn’t show up for three appointments with his probation officer
- He failed to submit written reports
- He failed to show proof of completion of a domestic violence counseling course.
The Dancing with the Stars alum was convicted of battery after headbutting his now ex-wife Evelyn Lozada. He is now unemployed and is trying to reduce the amount of child support he pays to the mother of his children.
