Following Chad Johnson's arrest on domestic violence charges, his wife Evelyn Lozada, who was the victim, has released a statement to Entertainment Tonight, and says the football star needs help. The statement reads:

"It is with great sadness and much trepidation that I release this statement addressing the domestic violence incident that happened this past Saturday. I am deeply disappointed that Chad has failed to take responsibility for his actions and made false accusations against me, it is my sincere hope that he seeks the help he needs to overcome his troubles. Domestic violence is not okay and hopefully my taking a stand will help encourage other women to break their silence as well. I’m grateful to my family, friends and fans for the outpouring of support during this difficult time."

Johnson was arrested in the Miami area on Saturday, after he allegedly head-butted Lozada, but he told authorities it was actually she who headbutted him.
