An arrest warrant went out this month for Chad Johnson, stemming from a probation violation. The probation was set after his 2012 domestic violence arrest, where he headbutted his now ex-wife Evelyn Lozada.
He failed to report to his probation officer on TWO occasions (funny how he doesn't have time for that, but time for Twitter CONSTANTLY), AND he failed to show proof of enrollment in a domestic violence education class.
The judge has just determined Chad WAS in violation and ordered him to be arrested and jailed, and it's imminent that bail will be set.
Why is it so hard for some people to just follow the law?? Blows our minds! LOLz!

Just when we were starting to forget about some of the horrible things Chad Johnson has done, we get pulled riiiiiiight back in!
Chad now has an arrest warrant out, stemming from his domestic violence conviction involving his now ex-wife Evelyn Lozada! Apparently he has failed to report to his probation officer, which is like, rule #1 when you're on probation! DUH!

We were THRILLED when Jason Collins became the first openly gay and active athlete on a major American sports team — it was such a powerful moment for both Jason and the LGBT community, and the outpouring of support has been astounding!
For instance, BILL CLINTON took the time to say something about Jason:
“I have known Jason Collins since he was Chelsea’s classmate and friend at Stanford. Jason’s announcement today is an important moment for professional sports and in the history of the LGBT community. It is also the straightforward statement of a good man who wants no more than what so many of us seek: to be able to be who we are; to do our work; to build families and to contribute to our communities. For so many members of the LGBT community, these simple goals remain elusive. I hope that everyone, particularly Jason’s colleagues in the NBA, the media and his many fans extend to him their support and the respect he has earned.”
Uh, that's right — a former President is giving you props for being yourself! Amazeballz!
Here are some other people giving Jason verbal high-fives for being a brave pioneer for himself and the LGBT community in professional sports:
