In an odd coincidence, Chad Johnson seemed to predict his arrest when said in the 1st episode of HBO’s Hard Knocks series (just last week), which is following the Dolphins this year, “Hey Stu, I promise I’m getting arrested while we’re off.”
Johnson signed with the Dolphins in June, four days after he was released by New England. A six-time Pro Bowl receiver with Cincinnati, he caught only 15 passes in 15 games for the Patriots last year after they acquired him in a trade for a pair of draft picks
On Friday night in the Dolphins’ 20-7 loss to Tampa Bay in the exhibition opener, Johnson let the only pass thrown to him slip through his hands.
Johnson and Lozada, married on July 4, were prominent in the recent first episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Miami Dolphins.”
Lozada used to be the fiancee of NBA player Antoine Walker.
