Chad Johnson (formerly Chad Ochocinco) is in the news for all the wrong reasons.
The former Miami Dolphins' player was arrested Saturday evening for domestic violence against his wife, Evelyn Lozada. Now the 911 call placed by Johnson and Lozada's Davie, Fla., neighbor has been released.
"I have somebody here at my house that was in a little domestic dispute with their husband," the calm caller says. "I think we need to have a police officer come here and talk to her…I think it was just a misunderstanding but we're worried that he's gonna come and get upset. I don't want the police to come with their lights on, but I just want them to come until everybody calms down."
As for the damage done? "She's got a cut on her forehead," the neighbor says of the Basketball Wives star, adding that Lozada "probably is gonna need stitches."
Lozada told E! News in a statement Tuesday she is "deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me…"
"…It is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his trouble," she added. "Domestic violence is not OK and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well. I'm grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time."
Our thoughts go out to everyone involved.
