Late last week the Broward County Sheriff's Office confirmed to CBSSports.com that an arrest warrant was issued for free-agent wideout Chad Johnson (née Ochocinco) after he violated his probation stemming from a domestic violence arrest last summer.
Johnson turned himself in and has now been arrested by the sheriff, a search of the Broward County arrest database confirms.
Lest you think it could be a different Chad Johnson, a relatively sharp-looking mugshot confirms it is the former wideout:
Johnson pleaded no contest to a domestic violence charge last summer and was given probation.
The wideout, who hasn't played in the NFL since a disappointing season with the Patriots in 2011, was tweeting throughout the time when he was rumored to be on the lam.
His account (@ochocinco) has been inactive since May 16, however, probably as a smart result of wanting to limit putting anything public out there.
