A graphic picture recently surfaced showing Evelyn Lozada with a large
gash on her forehead. The injury was reportedly sustained in a domestic
dispute between Lozada and NFL player Chad Johnson last year. Johnson
was later arrested on charges of Battery Domestic Violence. He subsequently
plead guilty and was placed on probation. More recently, Johnson was jailed at a
Probation Revocation hearing after slapping his attorney on the backside in court.
