  • FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Six-time Pro Bowl receiver Chad Johnson has been formally charged with one count of misdemeanor domestic battery.

    The Broward State Attorney's Office filed the charge Wednesday. Johnson faces up to a year in county jail.

    Johnson was arrested last month after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument in front of their home. He was later freed on $2,500 bond.

    The confrontation came barely a month after Johnson married Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show "Basketball Wives." The 34-year-old Johnson had been battling for a spot on the Miami Dolphins after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011.

    The Dolphins released Johnson a day after his arrest.

    Johnson is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning and to file a written plea of not guilty.
