Chad Johnson back in custody in Broward County

Former NFL player Chad Johnson was back in court Monday.

The ex-Miami Dolphins player appeared before a judge on a probation violation.

According to wsvn.com Johnson will be booked in the Broward County Jail on a $1,000 bond.

A warrant was issued against Johnson May 7 for failing to report to his probation officer.
 
Johnson received a year of probation last September after pleading no contest to a domestic violence charge involving his former wife, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada.
 
The six-time Pro Bowl player was arrested in August after Lozada said he head-butted her during an argument. She quickly filed for divorce, which was finalized days before his conviction. They had only been married since July 4.
 
Johnson was cut by the Miami Dolphins shortly afterward. He previously played for the Cincinnati Bengals and New England Patriots.
 
Johnson is due back in court on June 3. nbc6.com reports.
