    The 911 call of the alleged incident was released Monday by Davie Police. In it, the couple's next-door neighbor reports the incident with Johnson's wife inside his home. The neighbor, who said Evelyn Lozado was alert but would probably need stitches, asked that police not turn the alleged dispute into a big scene.

    The divorce between former Miami Dolphins player Chad Johnson and reality TV star Evelyn Lozada has been finalized, Johnson's attorney said.

    A South Florida judge signed off on the divorce Wednesday morning, attorney Adam Swickle told NBC 6.

    [MI] Chad Johnson Bonds Out of Jail
    Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson was released from jail Sunday after he was arrested at his home in Davie on a domestic violence charge, police said. Johnson, wearing a green T-shirt and sweatpants, did not speak to reporters. His attorney, Adam B. Swickle, said he had no comment.

    "It's an agreed upon divorce based on a prenuptial agreement," Swickle said.

    Lozada filed for divorce last month after Johnson was arrested for allegedly head-butting her during an argument at the couple's home in Davie.

    Lozada was treated at a nearby hospital for lacerations to her head, though Johnson told police she had head-butted him. He pleaded not guilty to a domestic battery charge earlier this month.

    The Dolphins released Johnson the day after his arrest and he has yet to land with a new team. The 34-year-old Johnson had been battling for a spot on the Miami Dolphins after a disappointing season with the New England Patriots in 2011.

    The confrontation came barely a month after the July 4 marriage between Johnson and Lozada, who is on the reality TV show "Basketball Wives."
