Following the arrest of NFL/ reality star Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson’s for allegedly head butting his new wifey Evelyn Lozada The Miami Dolphin’s say they can’t take a risk of having him on the team and within 24 hrs of his arrest they released him.
According to ESPN,
I was shocked,” tight end Charles Clay said. “Of course, you don’t want things like that to happen.”
Johnson has long been known for outlandish antics that annoyed his teammates as well as coaches. Philbin, a first-year head coach, talked with his players about Johnson’s arrest before the player was released.
“I reminded them that on April 10 in our first team meetings, I said, ‘Guys, I’d love to stand up here and tell you we’re never going to have a problem here in Miami,’ ” Philbin said. “Do we want high-character guys? Yes. All 31 other coaches are going to say the same thing. But I specifically told them on April 10 that there will be problems that arise and you have to deal with them honestly and openly and directly. You’ve got to learn from mistakes and move on, and you can’t hide from the problem.”
If convicted, Johnson faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and a $1,000 fine. He could also receive community service, probation or anger management classes.
