The Miami Dolphins wide receiver reportedly head-butted his wife amid an argument while in a vehicle.

Well, "Hard Knocks" certainly got a little more interesting, or perhaps awkward.

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was arrested Saturday night on domestic violence charges, according to a report from Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Per the Sun-Sentinel, which first reported the story.

Johnson was arrested Saturday night for domestic violence, according to Davie Police Department captain Dale Engle.

According to a source the incident took place in a vehicle.

Johnson allegedly head-butted his new wife, Evelyn Lazado, during an argument.

Johnson, 34, who signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins in early June, recently married Evelyn Lazado on the Fourth of July. Lazado, a TV personality and is one of six main cast members in the VH1's Basketball Wives series, reportedly had "lacerations" on her forehead.

This is the first arrest for Johnson, a 12-year NFL wideout who has always been controversial for various antics but avoided run-ins with the law.
