Things are not looking good for Chad Johnson (formerly Chad Ochocinco).

Following the Miami Dolphins' announcement that they were dropping the NFL star, VH1 has pulled his reality show Ev and Ocho from its schedule. 

Johnson was arrested on Saturday for a domestic altercation with his wife, Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada.

In an official statement, the network says, "Due to the unfortunate events over the weekend and the seriousness of the allegations, VH1 is pulling the series Ev and Ocho from its schedule and has no current plans of airing it."

Johnson and Lozada were married on July 4, and the now-canceled show documented their wedding planning. 

The NFL star was arrested for allegedly head-butting Lozada, according to Davie, Fla., police captain Dale Engle, who says, "She has a good laceration on her forehead."

Johnson was released from jail on $2,500 bond and charged with a misdemeanor of simple domestic battery, ABC News reports.
