The ex-NFL star known more commonly as Chad Ochocinco also failed to show proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class, TMZ reported. A Broward County judge determined he was in violation of his probation and ordered him arrested and jailed.
Johnson, 35, was on probation after an incident last year involving his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada who accused him of head-butting her in the car.
The wide receiver pleaded no contest to the domestic violence charges and was subsequently released by the Miami Dolphins.
Broward County police issued a warrant for Johnson's arrest last week.
Bond was set at $1,000.
