This undated photo provided by the Broward Sheriff's Office shows former Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson. Johnson was held in a Florida jail on a domestic violence charge after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument.

 

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — For Chad Johnson, a weekend confrontation with his wife has led to repercussions beyond a misdemeanor charge and NFL unemployment.

VH1 pulled the series "Ev and Ocho" from its schedule, citing "the seriousness of the allegations" against Johnson. The network said Monday it had no plans to air the show.

The Dolphins terminated Johnson's contract Sunday night, about 24 hours after he was arrested in a domestic battery case involving his wife, Evelyn Lozada, who is on the reality TV show "Basketball Wives."

Coach Joe Philbin says the decision to release the six-time Pro Bowl receiver wasn't based on any single incident and wasn't made to send a message. Instead, Philbin decided Johnson and the Dolphins were simply a bad fit.
