Chad Johnson’s release from a Florida jail Monday was

supposed to be the final act of a saga that dates to August, when

the former Chad Ochocinco

target="_blank">was arrested at his home for headbutting his

wife, Evelyn Lozada, during an argument.

On Tuesday, however, TMZ released several photos of Lozada

after just 41 days of marriage.

The images (below) show a large gash on Lozada’s forehead

and have stirred up discussion about just how violent the

confrontation was.

when he caught one pass for 21 yards for the New England

Patriots.
