Florida police release 911 call in Chad Johnson case

This undated photo provided by the Broward Sheriff's Office shows Miami Dolphins wide receiver Chad Johnson. A judge has set bond at $2,500 for Johnson, who is being held in a Florida jail on a domestic violence charge after his wife accused him of head-butting her during an argument. Johnson's defense attorney, Adam Swickle, says Johnson posted the bond early Sunday, Aug. 12, 2012, though jail records show he had not yet been released. Swickle says a no-contact order has been issued that prevents Johnson from contacting his wife, Evelyn Lozada. (AP Photo/Broward Sheriff's Office)

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.

Johnson was arrested and bonded out Sunday morning. He was cut from the Dolpins later that day.
