Chad Johnson could be on the receiving end of a pair of handcuffs if he isn't careful.

A warrant was issued for the currently teamless NFL star's arrest on May 7, because he failed to report to his probation officer regarding his domestic violence case, according to the Broward County District Attorney's Office in Florida.

The erstwhile Ochocinco pleaded no contest in September to misdemeanor battery stemming from a fight with his now ex-wife, Evelyn Lozada, that allegedly turned physical. He was sentenced to 12 months' probation and ordered to spend 26 weeks in battery-intervention counseling.

Johnson's attorney has not yet responded to a request for comment.

In December, Lozada dropped a no-contact order that had been in place against her ex. She was spotted having dinner with him and his daughter the following month but later took to her blog to say that they were not back together.

Johnson appears to be in California, tweeting earlier today, "Chilly in Pasadena," and posting a pic of himself with L.A.-based football coach Charles Collins, who specializes in Johnson's position, wide receiver.
