Former Dolphin Chad Johnson arrested on probation violation

May 20, 2013 at 2:25 PM

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 20 (UPI) -- Former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested Monday morning after twice not reporting to his probation officer, court records said.

A warrant was issued after Johnson left the Miami area and missed two check-ins, in February and March. The Broward County Sheriff's Office confirmed Johnson appeared in court Monday to answer to his probation violations, and was subsequently ordered to jail.

His Twitter account mentioned he was in Pasadena, Calif., last week.

Johnson has been on probation since pleading guilty to domestic abuse of his then-wife in 2012, The Miami Herald reported.
