Hearing delayed for former NFL star Chad Johnson

Ex-Miami Dolphin wideout could do jail time

Headline Goes Here

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - Former NFL player Chad Johnson will wait another week for a hearing on a probation violation stemming from an altercation with his then-wife.

The hearing was postponed from Monday to June 10 in Broward County court for the six-time Pro Bowl receiver. Johnson was arrested in May after failing to meet with his probation officer. He insisted it was a misunderstanding.

Prosecutors indicated they wanted jail time for Johnson. It's up to a judge to decide.

The 35-year-old formerly known as Chad Ochocinco pleaded no contest to head-butting TV reality star Evelyn Lozada during an argument in August. The "Basketball Wives" star immediately filed for divorce after a month of marriage.

Johnson was then released by the Miami Dolphins. He previously played for the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.
