Chad Ochocinco hasn't been one to hide his feelings.
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - A neighbor calmly talked to a 911 dispatcher while reality TV star Evelyn Lozada sat bleeding from the head following a domestic incident with her husband, former Miami Dolphin wide receiver Chad Johnson.
In the tape released by Davie police Monday night, the neighbor says the Saturday night altercation involves a "high profile person." He repeatedly urges police not to make a big scene when coming into the South Florida neighborhood.
During the call, the neighbor tells Lozada to wipe the blood from an open wound on her head. Lozada can be heard in the background saying Johnson headbutted her. The neighbor tells the dispatcher the woman will likely need stitches.
The reality star issued her first statement Tuesday since the football star's arrest for allegedly head-butting her. The altercation took place in the Miami area Saturday.
Lozada says she's "deeply disappointed" that her estranged husband hasn't taken responsibility for his actions. She says he made false accusations against her: Johnson told police she head-butted him.
Lozada says she hopes that by taking a stand, she will encourage other women to "break their silence" on the issue of domestic violence.
The two were married a little over a month ago and their nuptials were to be part of the VH1 reality show "Ev & Ocho" - but it's now been shelved.
Johnson was arrested and bonded out Sunday morning. He was cut from the Dolphins later that day.
