DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Dolphins receiver Chad Johnson has been released from a Florida jail on $2,500. He had been charged with domestic violence after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument.

Jail officials say the 34-year-old Johnson was released Sunday. Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada.

Such orders are common in domestic violence cases.

Swickle declined to comment further.

Police say Johnson, formerly known as Chad Ochocinco, was arrested Saturday. He is accused of head-butting his wife during an argument in front of their Miami home. Davie police Capt. Dale Engle said the argument started when Lozada confronted Johnson about a receipt she had found for a box of condoms.
