The alleged altercation between Chad Johnson and his wife, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada, isn’t his first domestic violence incident.  Johnson plead no contest to a domestic battery case involving his girlfriend at the time in 2000.  On Saturday night, Chad Johnson allegedly headbutted Lozada, causing her head to bleed.  She then went to a neighbor’s where they called 9-1-1.  NBC Sports reports:
