The NFL player, who married girlfriend Evelyn Lozada in front of reality show cameras last month, was arrested this weekend on suspicion of domestic violence after he allegedly head-butted his new bride in front of their home, TMZ reports.
Johnson was arrested after police found Lozada with lacerations on her forehead. She told police that she confronted her husband after finding a receipt for condoms in the trunk of their car, which turned into a heated argument. She later fled to a neighbor’s house, where she called 911.
Johnson, 34, claims that he “accidentally” bumped her head with his.
